Slowdowns in AE 2014
by Peter Leeman 2 weeks ago
Since upgrading to AE 2014 all rendering times and general application responsiveness is sluggish when using the Color Finesse plugin. Have had same results on two different machines. Stopping use of
Re: Slowdowns in AE 2014
by Bob Currier 2 weeks ago
I'm not aware of any problem like this. If you simply apply Color Finesse to a layer, without setting any parameters at all, does the slowdown exist Or do you have to call up the full Color Finesse UI

Dead Swatches

Hi, I'm trying Test Gear 2.5.3 mainly for the swatches panel. But I can't do anything to it. The panel menu and commands are supposed to do something, right https: dl.dropboxusercontent.com u 536514 s
Re: Dead Swatches

It appears to be a bug in the update we did for CC 2014, although the bug is present at least back to CS6. We're investigating what's going on and hope to have a fix soon. Thanks for the screen movie.
Tutorial for Correcting White Balance in Color Finesse

Bob Currier was kind enough to outline this easy method for white balance corrections, so I thought I'd publish a tutorial showing how to do it in detail. To download the Podcast, right-click the link

Make sure you are using the very latest installer from our website. An update to the installer (not the plug-in itself) was required to make it CC 2014 compatible. If you are still having difficulties
Linear Workspace
by Nils Crompton 7 months 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 7 months 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
Wrong SMPTE Color Bars In After Effect Color Finesse 3 Plugin

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

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

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 3 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

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]

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

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
