Hi,
I was wondering how to change the color in stock footage of flames or explosions?? I was told to use the key grade and take out the black, but that failed, so anyone can give me a step by step on this I would appericate it! Thanks to who ever answers this! Chad

If your stock footage has a black background, you can remove that by setting its composite mode to "Screen." If you wish to change the color of the flames, you can do so by adding a "Hue Shift" grading object to the footage and turning the wheel until you get your desired look. smile
