I have footage from a camera that continuously changes its white balance while shooting, so the footage switches back and forth between warm and cool. How do I color correct for a changing white balance? Note, there’s hours of footage there.
if you enable the text layer and scroll Gamma Clamp at gamma*10 so that the text box reads 25, it will
fix timelapse and old movie’s flicker and white balance for large ammounts of footage. just replace video with yours.
Thank you for making this. I’ve seen you on multiple forums which is good to see. However, you’re using so esoteric language and vague descriptions of how to actually execute this that a beginner to After Effects like me has absolutely no idea what you’re talking about. It would be incredibly helpful if you made a video or step by step list of how to actually enable the text layer, changing the gamma clamp, and all these types of things so that your work can be a lot more useful to the community. Thanks again. Seeing that this was so many years ago I really do hope you see this and get back to me as I’m very desperate to fix my hyperlapse.
im 99% sure even my last correction slider can be fully automated. I just haven’t touched it because it works and I don’t want to break it. I originally tested the template on archive.org train footage that was very flickery and it worked really well.
I haven’t made a video because its free and you get technical support once every 6 years, lol. i might have time sometime this week for a 60 sec. walkthrough. in the meantime, right click replace video.avi with your footage. there is a hidden text layer in final output comp(de-hide with hide button) that has a number that displays lower right.
you want the gamma clamp slider to make that number ~25 so that it averages 25 every 30 seconds or so. this has something to do with the shadow pumping required to fix really bad footage. a lot of this was tricky because there’s no direct math working here, it’s more art than science as I stumbled on the right logarithmic code through pure trial and error.
if you need a professional plugin, I highly recommend digital anarchy deflicker as it supports a wide variety of flickering problems including strobing and florescent light problems for only $149.https://store.digitalanarchy.com/23-VIDEO_PLUGINS
