    that was just an image taken from internet to show what CA is all about.. btw I tried with some color footage and no success… I will upload a one second clip I just made in few minutes, maybe if you or someone else can do the correction and put the project file online it would be cool…

    Ok this is a sample file I just did:

    A you can see the wide angle adapter caused some CA on the airplane’s nose (green) and on the right side of the elevator (red).
    Can you do a project file with the correction and post it?
    Thanks

    This one doesn’t look to difficult to repair in Vegas, but ofcourse the question is whether you are satisfied with the result obtained by now. Another question is whether the camera is moving around the plane or is it a static shot?

    Treated picture. Please open both pictures in photoshop and compare them under a large magnification.

    How did you do it?

    4 times the Chromablur FX (three times might also be OK depending on your wishes and the rest of the footage). And I masked the red wires out (that’s why I was asking whether it is a static shot or a moving camera).

    Please inform us about the results you get…

    Ah ok I tried chromablur already but it doesn’t totally eliminate CA, and it affects also other colors of the video..
    My videos are always moving (aerial videos).
    Thanks for suggestions

    ‘Ah ok I tried chromablur already but it doesn’t totally eliminate CA,’
    That’s why I used 4 copies of the Chromablur FX….


    ‘and it affects also other colors of the video.. ‘

    That’s why I included some masking around the red-colored wires…
    You didn’t look at the project-file yet?

    As you have seen in the 2 examples above, it depends very much on the footage whether CA can be repaired and how it can be done. So without having seen the rest of the footage, I can’t say anything about it.
