Does anyone know how to create the pleasantville effect in the toaster on a video clip? I need two people in the shot to be in color...everything else in black and white.

It may just be what you need or you may need a more complicated solution.

Another more recent method that might help when the background does not lend it self easily to selection by color is Mirage's RotoTracking, which would let one effectively cut the foreground away from the background for separate color processing.

You can also see what I did here in Realtime with one of my
Fx BobsColorReplace.

Its a short clip that shows some of the hidden
power in these filters.
You can see the file at
http://www.toastergarage.com/ColorReplace.avi
(I finally took a while for me to play with this.)
Took me about 10 minutes to set up and I think the results are
pretty good. Just use white as the destination color
and invert the mask for those that already have it.
Oh and restrict the area you are working with.

I am not sure how difficult your shot will be
to get this effect.

Bob, can you have more than one area active in the raster? I noticed the guy's head has chroma, but his hands do not.

I never thought about several retricted areas. Its a VERY cool idea
and can be done.
You can just widen the area but thats NOT as good.
Jim,
I think you gave me the idea for a new product!.

I think it might be done day after tomorrow.
I should have enough times and train rides to do it.
This should make an Excellant COLOR pass filter.
Specially since you can have multiple selection areas
that are keyframeable.
COOL idea Jim!
I dont think I will name it after you but I will give you credit
in my readme :cool:
Probably not as cool as cash :o
