Apple Color: December 2009 Archives

Out of all of our tutorials, the "Pleasantville" or "Schindler's List" effect is one of your enduring favorites.  Long story short, you render an image in black and white, except for a single color (quite often red).  Today, we'll take a look at Apple Color's HSL curves in the Secondary rooms, and use those to execute a very quick "Pleasantville Effect" in Color.

Background

The HSL curves in Apple Color's Secondary rooms are very cool: they let you selectively manipulate the tonality of a specific range of your image's hues, and, unlike key-based selections, they force a smooth transition between "in-selection" and "out-of-selection" regions.  In other words, they take care of those splotchy parts of your matte without the need to fiddle with HSL key controls.
