Showing results for tags 'wrong white balance'.
Hi there, I'm a relative inexperienced colour-grader and I am having some issues with my footage. I was wondering if someone here could give me some advice to improve the outcome of the colourgrade! The problem is that I think that the colours look really 'greenish' in the end. Now as you can see, the raw footage that came out of the camera is really yellow. I balanced my camera by making a picture of a white sheet of paper and setting the white balance to custom (On a Canon 60D with Cinestyle). I think I should have just put the white balance to White Fluorescent Lightning. So the first thing I did was brighten the image up a bit with Colorista. Then I used Curves to add the contrast that I want. This makes the image even more yellow. To make the image colder again I added a 'cooling filter' by using Magic Bullet Looks. Normally this works perfect to do minor white balance adjustments, but in this case it seems to make the image really greenish. I hope someone can give me advice on how to fix this! From now on I won't be using 'custom whitebalance' on my DSLR anymore.. Cheers, Twan
