I've been trying to turn a scene where the original setting was shot during mid day but i need to make it look like early morning before full sunrise. I tried using the presets "Nighttime" and "day for Night" but when i render them i can easily see pixelation in the shot. is there anyway to smoothen out the grading
Im using effects Lab Pro

Do your project settings match the original file? And after you've rendered the clip out of Effectslab have you tried importing it into your NLE?

Someone else had this problem not long ago, and rendering his clip in Uncompressed quality fixed it for him, so I'd recommend you try the same thing.

i don't understand what u mean by uncompressed.

whenever i render i always set it in the highest quality. i don't know if that's the problem or not

When you render you'll get a horrible white window come up with options like, "cinepack codec" in the drop down thing. Open that tray and you can click 'uncompressed' Highest quality that is
