Hey guys, this is E-Meek 77, from Final Cut Studio School and I had a question about color. A person wanted to know how to make an atom in the scene, steady, stay keeps its color and everything else goes black and white and there is several ways of doing this. I might have even pose another video earlier on how to do this, but I want to go over once again but this time, let me use the hue coarse and saturation coarse. Instead of using the color wheels, now you probably seen this footage before, it is a real good footage for what I want to do, so I am want to go to my secondary tab and I am going to go to my saturation curve tab, which use me this one all the way from red to red and all the colors in between. Blue, purple, green and all the different hues, now up is adding color and pulling down is removing color, so I want to just add yellow and remove everything else, so I want to go here and make a few control points by clicking.
So, I want to fill the yellow range up and I want to start pouring the other colors down and out with the scene. And also, if you notice, when I made this change, nothing happened, that is because my secondary are not enabled up here. Enable your secondary, now as you can see, there is a change beginning to happen. So, I am going to take my yellow and I am going to … up it and bring it up and bring everything else down. So, you are just going to work with it until you get about what you are looking for and as you can see over here, it is looking pretty good. The only thing we got is the cab that is in color. Now, there are a few other things in their background that is also of color and I can show you how to remove that later.
So, that is basically it, that is how you use the cue with the hue and saturation course if you wanted to remove the blue or the red or anything else or whatever, just use this line and make your control points and go for it.
Go back to my preview, now I want to add a venyet to my picture, so I want to click on my venyet button. Let us throw in a venyet. Like as you can see, right here is the circle, I want to go down to my shape; I will make it a square and I want to take my square and put it on upper half of my picture, that is color that I do not want. There right there, make sure my control menu set to inside and I am going in to the saturation control and pull my saturation out. And now, as you can see, up here in the preview, everything is black and white, except the cab. And, there is a few other things, but there is 8 tabs and you can make 8 different venyets and I can go here and make another venyet and take out this little spotted color, but that is basically is, that simple guys. So, if you have any questions, get a hold on me. I have several emails, you can always start right here on you tube but E-mix 77 channel or also I have a finalcutstudio.com on You Tube and I will post my website in the video description, if I can remember too. So, if you got any questions, get a hold of me. We will see you next time.
