I'm trying to turn a person's skin green, and then make their eyes glow. I've been trying everything, and I can't get it to work. Does anybody know how to do this?

You use masks to isolate the area you want to change, and use grading filters (probably Hue Shift) to change the color.

Axeman is right. Using masks to isolate it would be the way to go. Someone once did something like you are trying....

It seems like one of the most painstaking effects because you have to carefully mask it for every single frame, unless you're using a blue screen or something of the like.

Isn't there a better way to accomplish this without so much roto? This would take a long time. Selective colorization can be done in many NLE's, I wonder if those techniques can be applied?

That would depend on how long the shot is, and how much movement.

Probably could, but that would still depend on if the facial color of the person doesn't appear anywhere else in the shot. If it did, he still would have to isolate the face with masks.

Many possible workflows to get the same effect.

You could probably use makeup to make the face green/blue, you could isolate it that way which would be quicker.
