    Keyframing Color Corrections - usable or not?

     

    Being able to Keyframe Color Corrections in Symphony (and MC 3.5) could be a great feature.

     

    Unfortunately, it seems that while the color correction uses 16 bits  (?), the control interface is still only 8 bits (or even less), and there is no way you can keyframe for example a subtle change in brightness and get a usable result.

     

    Since the CC keyframing can't interpolate the values of some parameters, you're still sometimes better off just adding a dissolve between the settings you want, since there's no way to keyframe a smooth change, unless it's a really fast one.

     

    If there's some obscure option I've missed that fixes this, please let me know!

    Hi Editdudes,

      Just wanted to check in on this thread. All interpolated values are fractional, it is only the starting and ending values that will end on 8bit non-fractional Values.

     

    Also, you can animate *all* Parameters that have corresponding sliders in the CC window, plus the levels and curves graphs. 

    And all keyframes can be smooth, you just need to change the interpolation type to be anything other than Shelf.

    See how that works for you.

    I'm not sure I'm understanding this... Are you saying that there will be a quality loss if you use the new keyframe feature in the Color Corrector?

    Hi

     

    From what I can see, many parameters interpolate well, but Master Setup and Brightness have no fractional interpolation.

    How do you suggest I change the interpolation type to fix this?

    Hi there,

      Sorry for the delay.

    If you are in the Editor, while in Color Correction, you can click on the Effect Editor.

    Once it opens, it should show you some of the parameters of the effect you are working on.

    Clicking on Master Setup, or Brightness, triangles should show you the area to add a keyframe. At that point, you can right+click that area to get the same menus to change the interpolation.
    Does that answer what you are asking, or did i miss it?
