Hey guys.

I just shot a music video and made the beginners mistake of adding too much red light to the scene. In the scene i have a black woman in a yellow dress and the red light sort of dominates the footage, and makes it hard to get good skintones ect.
I like the overall red look of the scene, thats why i put them there, i just overdid it.
Im using After Effects and Colorista II to colorgrade it.
I would very much like some tips and tricks on how to go about my particular problem.

Thank for your time

i believe colorista II actually has the option to pull specific hues from a scene. Go to the little red dot and pull it towards the center (look around until you see what I'm talking about... or go to stu's site prolost.com and find the tutorial).

Your other option is of course to make everything just a little more cyan to counteract the red.
