I really want to color spash a video [black and white with some color showing] I already know how to do that, but I want to change the colors. Everytime I try, it looks very unnatural.

PS- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nu1TdnJ-rjg is an idea of what I want.

Thanks. (:

Did you not notice that the colors look really unnatural in that video you linked to?

All they did was apply a hue shift after they had isolated the colored bits. The proper way to do it, in the example you provided, is to have 20 different copies of the sweatshirt she is wearing, in different colors, and change the shirt between takes.

Its honestly just a Hue Shift filter. That's it, as far as changing the colors..

Might be a hue colourise rather than a hue shift. Either way you'll get the same sort of result.
