Join Chad Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the Levels histogram, part of Learning Magic Bullet Suite.
I mentioned before that one of the problems of using Colorista two or any …effect that you work on in the Effect Controls Panel in After Effects is that …there really aren't any scopes typically, and so you really don't know where your …levels lie. You have your eyes of course, but …sometimes those can be deceiving. So, one of the old tricks is you can …actually use the old levels effect. I'm just going to apply the levels effect …to our little horsy footage here. And I actually have processed this and we …have the histogram and it looks pretty balanced, it looks like we're blowing out …soem highlights, I can actually see that here.…
And it looks like we're maybe, crushing some shadows, probably over here, on the …right hand side. But at least now that we can see that we …have a balanced image. If I deselect Colorista two, or un-heck …it so it turns it off, we could see that our histogram updates accordingly, and …our original image, which is much more washed out, is indicated here as well. …
