Default Remove bright light from video

I have a video clip with a spotligth shining directly into the camera. There is a bit of lens flare effect.
Luckily the light is to the side of the frame.
I have tried to use the luminancekey keyer but with no success.

Any ideas?

Besides cropping out or placing a 'flower' right on top not much choice.
You could mask it as blurred and lower the light intensity but it won't be pretty.
Crop I would say. F7 :)

While using zoom, move center (align left or right) of the image with the border to the opposite side or the light source, this manner will allow you to keep the most footage usable.

Before


Try this:

1. Apply Mask filter to the clip and draw freehand covering the area affected by the brightness of the lens.

2. Select "inside" and apply the filter YUV Curve down a set value for you.

3. Finally, to match the color on the outside area, select "Soft" apply a 50px, this would be the result:

Andres - that's absolutely terrific. I've had that problem before and never thought of using your method. Brilliant!

Unless I'm missing something, its just the same result as using a region filter (with a YUV curve) which has been there since version 1

Well it's the same idea, but the new thing is the mask which lets you make a better job of defining the area to be filtered.

Exact, with filter mask you have more freedom to define specifically the area you apply and you continue to add additional selections drawn free hand "being much more practical "... in previous versions of EDIUS when using the filter"Region" was not possible, there was no freedom to define a selection drawn freehand, so doing it would not have good results with filter "Region".

Thank you Caminostereo. Tried it and can see the benefits with glare. But unfortunately due to the light shining directly into the camera lens the I had to go with layouter's cropping function.
However, I will keep this process in my library.
