Linear Workspace
by Nils Crompton 3 weeks ago
As soon as I switch AE 2014 to linear, the scopes no longer accurately reflect the image. Is there a work around for this iMac i7 2012, 32GB OSX 10.8.4 Blackmagic Cinema Camera
Re: Linear Workspace
by Bob Currier 3 weeks ago
Test Gear will show the values of pixels as they exist in the selected working space within AE. If you linearize the working space then Test Gear will show the linearized pixel values. AE will show yo
After Effects CS6 crashes when try to open old projects CS4 with CF effect applied.

I cannot open and adjust old projects because the CF plug-in send:( After Effects error:crash occurred while invoking effect plug-in "SA Color Finesse 3" ) The AE old version is 9.0.2 Macintosh, the n

You should have the latest version of Color Finesse then. I'm not able to reproduce any problems moving a project from CS4 to CS6. Keep in mind that this is also a move from Color Finesse 2.1 to Color
Test Gear 2.5.3 doesn't support masks correctly?
by Matthew Sorrels 4 weeks ago
I seem to be having a problem with Test Gear 2.5.3 under CS6, CC, and CC 2014 (tried them all). I setup a comp with a still image (or video doesn't seem to matter). I then use the Rectangle Tool to dr
Re: Test Gear 2.5.3 doesn't support masks correctly?
by Bob Currier 4 weeks ago
This is an issue with After Effects and how it processes masks when passing the pixels to us to analyze. There's nothing we can do on our side, other than to file bug reports against AE. Since the AE
Color Finesse 3 does not load or work properly with After Effects CC
by Phil Hoppes 12 months ago
I just upgraded to Adobe's CC. I downloaded the latest version of Color Finesse (3.0.8) and did a re-install to upgrade both my CS6 and CC versions. Both AE and PP of CS6 work fine as does PP CC. Afte

The only thing "unusual" about your situation is the 4K frame size. That would seem to implicate some kind of memory issue. Can you let me know the exact pixel dimension of your frames There are a lot
Color Finesse MRGB Levels - numerical values?
by Lee Powell 3 months ago
In the Color Finesse 3LE Levels panel, you can use the mouse to set black, gamma, and white levels separately for Master, Red, Green, and Blue channels. This works great, except that I don't see any n
Re: Color Finesse MRGB Levels - numerical values?
by Bob Currier 3 months ago
You're talking about the Levels tab, right Yeah, no numeric readout. We're very much aware of this lack. For black and white points a workaround is to use the eyedropper sampler to select an appropria
Wrong SMPTE Color Bars In After Effect Color Finesse 3 Plugin
by Jason Freets 8 months ago
I am getting wrong SMPTE Color Bars in the scopes for the After Effect's Color Finesse 3 Plugin. Out of After Effects, I have run the SMPTE Color Bars through other scopes and they appear correct. And
Re: Wrong SMPTE Color Bars In After Effect Color Finesse 3 Plugin

Which version of Color Finesse are you running There was a bug fixed in version 3.0.5 on Windows which could account for this. The current version for download is 3.0.8. Adobe CC 12.2 includes Color F
Color Finesse III worked, now it's reverted to trial mode!

I have CS4 Master Collection and easily my most important plug in is Color Finesse 3 LE, I love it, or at least I did... My friend had my laptop overnight to do some edit work and without my permissio
Re: Color Finesse III worked, now it's reverted to trial mode!
by Bob Currier 2 years ago
After Effects CS4 came with Color Finesse 2 LE, not Color Finesse 3. Do you have a CF3 serial number or a CF2 serial number A CF2 serial number will start with "CFLEP20" while a CF3 serial will start
Matching PP Color Correction in AE
by John Young 4 years ago
I was wondering the workflow that you all use for color correcting clips used in After Effect compositions. I have been using Fast Color Corrector in Premiere and having good success. But I am having
Re: Matching PP Color Correction in AE
by Bob Currier 4 years ago
Color Finesse isn't an additional purchase, it's installed automatically into After Effects by the Adobe CS4 and CS5 installers. In CS3 it was a separate installer on the Adobe DVD, but there was stil
Why doesn't my image desaturate if I have made changes to the RGB levels on color finesse?
by Dionysios Kotsilimpas 4 years ago
As the title states. If i have adjusted the RGB levels and then try to desaturate the image slightly it gives it an orange tint rather then desaturate the image. Once i uncheck my RGB adjustments then
Re: Why doesn't my image desaturate if I have made changes to the RGB levels on color finesse?
by Bob Currier 4 years ago
Jon Bagge is correct, it's an operation ordering issue. The HSL controls (which is where the saturation control is) is processed prior to the RGB controls. So you end up colorizing your desaturated im

Hi Bob
Just wanted to let you know that I've put another couple of CF tutorials up. One on the vectorscope and another one which is only podcast at the moment and will go live later this week is on waveform monitors in CF. I have also pointed out in both that Test Gear is available and given the SA website.

Let me know what you think

The VS tutorial looks really good. I tweeted about it via @synthap and am planning to include a pointer to it (and your other tutorials) in our next email newsletter. Looking forward to the WFM tutori [more]
Approach Using Color Finesse's WVM and Vectorscope
by Max Jackson 4 years ago
Hi CC, I've been practicing color matching using Levels to match foreground and background objects in their R, G, and B channels. I've gotten somewhat comfortable with this process so I've moved onto
Re: Approach Using Color Finesse's WVM and Vectorscope
by Bob Currier 4 years ago
I took a quick crack at this to see what I could do. I've found that curves are particularly useful for this kind of faded-photo situation, since the underlying problem is that you've lost most of the
Color Finesse and premultiplication error
by Aaron Neitz 5 years ago
I'm doing some greenscreen comping in AE cs4. I notice that if I use Color Finesse after Keylight it's causing a premultiplication error and I'm getting black lines on my key edges. Can't seem to find
Re: Color Finesse and premultiplication error
by Bob Currier 5 years ago
Be sure to install the latest version of Color Finesse, 2.1.11, as there was an alpha bug we fixed that could cause black edges. You can download the current installer from our website and use your ex

Are you referring to the Color Finesse preview on your computer monitor, or on an external video monitor If the computer monitor, try changing the "Use Old Style Gamma" checkbox in the Color Finesse p

Got it! Thanks. I suspected a color management issue, but you have that turned off in AE. Since you see no difference between the screen shots, but do see a difference when viewing it live, I wonder i
