  • Help with Brightening footage

    I'm Shooting HDV footage, and using 4.13 Edius, A friend of my using Vegas uses "gama" to increase the brightness of some wedding footage of mine. (it worked great), what would be the best steps within Edius to get equal results. Gary.

    Try this I use this to brighten footage taken on cloudy days
    Under Colour Correction select Colour Balance and try the following settings
    Chroma set to 17
    Brightness set to between 15 and 40
    Contrast set to between 12 and 21
    try various combinations it certainly makes a difference
    The Alternative is the YUV curve another name for GAMMA but I find it a little daunting to use, EDIUS does not seem to have a GAMMA correction as such, Even on Premier and Media studio Pro I used the Colour correction filters as GAMMA seems to be either too dark or too light, maybe its just me!
    Sorry for the strange accent on Colour/color its Ausy English
    Hope this helps

      Another nice trick from the old forum: duplicate the clip on a superior track and apply a screen-keyer to it. Adjust with the rubberband => works very good.

            Make sure to have the waveform/vectorscope open and keep your white and black levels at the correct levels :)

              I just tried the Screen keyer, and it works really well. My question is this: exactly what does the keyer do? It isn't even mentioned in the Reference Manual. For that matter, none of the keyers are explained either in the program or the documentation.

                If you ever used Photoshop's blending options then you'll understand what each one does :)

                Here's a site that explains them:

                This one is for photoshop, but very similar to what Edius uses.

                    I don't know how old this thread is but I'd like it revisited.

                    I too have a hard time in EDIUS working out the gamma correction- does it exist under different formula?

                    For instance- I learned this tip off a training DVD for Sorenson Squeeze.

                    Apply to source a filter with +10 contrast -5 brightness & +35 gamma

                    I tell you what, it looks brilliant!!! How can I achieve this in EDIUS?

                    EDIT: You can change the brightness + contrast in ProCoder 3 then add a gamma filter but (the gamma) it doesn't have same values as Sorenson- in fact I have to reduce the default gamma slider a bit, still looks great.

                      Check out Antons site for his Edius YUV curves tips, since I read it I use curves every time now instead of bri and contrast, etc. You need the waveform meter open while you adjust so you can maintain legal IRE levels but once you find out how YUV curves works you will be chuffed!

                      It works as a gamma control. bri, contrast etc all in one.

                      Thanks for this one Anton!

                          I would like to brighten up a bit of footage thats just a little dark. Could I ask wheres the screen keyer.

                            Look in the Effects Pallet > Keyers > Blend

                            You can also use the rubber band to adjust the amount of "brightness" added.
