Lighten In Post

Recommended Posts

to lighten and keep contrast, saturation, etc.


Take the clip, copy and past it...

Detach the audio from the video so you do not have 2 of the same audio causin excess sound (shift + L)

place directly above the original clip (youll have 2 of the same clips) and only one audio.

on the TOP clip, click on it and go to modify - composite mode - then SCREEN.


it will lighten up your image without giving you excess grain, keep your saturation, etc...


if it lightens it too much just simply lower the opacity (click the thing that looks like mountains, arrow took and pull down the line in the center of the clip (on the top clip))

For what program are you talking bout, after effects, vegas, final cut. You should have mentioned.

with any im pretty sure. i use fcp but screen is a standard image mode that brightens. i knew the trick from working in photoshop just used it on video.
