    I have seen in lots of Indian movies, when a song is going on (of course the hero and heroine are singing a duet – running around the trees kind of stuff..), only the dress color of the heroine keeps on changing. None of the other surrounding colors change. Could someone explain how this technique is done.

    They change dresses. Nothing is done in post to change the colors/stryles of the dress.

    However, it is entirely possible to create a dress with such a unique color that it could easily be color keyed to change whenever you wanted. It doesn’t have to be perfect, just pretty good, because if she is running then it is difficult to see ny keying problems anyway.

    Upon checking with one of my friends, he says that there is a selection tool in Premiere (is there one??) and selection is made on the subject matter (heroine in this case) and color corrected for the entire sequence – say 5000 frames or so. Or it is done in Combustion. Any feedback, please ?

    Selection is the key. Once the dress is selected you can animate HSL 2 options;
    1. Select the color of the dress. It must be sufficiently unique from the rest of the colors in the frames to use the Color Replace effect.
    2. Select the area of the dress using an animated 16 point garbage matte. Place your clip in V1 and another instance in V2 directly above. Apply the 16 point garbage matte to the clip in V2. Toggle animation for all 16 points and then do a frame by frame adjustment of each point…after 2 or 3 days of this nonsense, apply the Color Balance effect to V2 and animate the Hue over time.

    After Effects can do this easier and better with an animated mask.
