With some images or clips, you may need to perform selective colour correction—where you modify a range of colour, as opposed to the entire clip or image. Use the tools in the Selective menu to create selectives. Selectives are generated mattes used to isolate colour ranges for selective colour correction.
In the Selective menu, you can:
- Create and refine a matte using tolerance and softness to define the range you want to modify.
- View a matte, a selected colour range, or the result.
- Enable mattes to apply the selective colour correction to the result image. Disable mattes to remove the selective colour correction from the result image.
TipSet the image window to 2-Up view (Alt+2) so that you can create your matte in one viewport while simultaneously monitoring the result in the other.
