Evening

I'm really hoping someone can help me here...!! I'm working on a new stop motion project which I've been filming over a few nights. I've got a problem though in the going back over some of my previous shots the lighting has changed so some backgrounds and foreground objects are darker than on other clips even though the lighting set up is the same and I've done by best to match the camera settings up to match previous shots.

Is there a way that I can correct these and match the clips in VL...?

Ages ago I found that on the video advertising the capabilites of VisionLab it showed a gungle/military scene wih 2 shots that looked like they were filmed with different settings and then spliced and graded to match....

Any help will be greatly received....!!

Many thanks

AC

The whole section of grading filters is there pretty much for this purpose, so yeah, its totally do-able. Its basically just a matter of deciding which one has the look you want, and using whatever grading filters are necessary on the other clip(s) to get it to match.
