I'm using CS6, and when I try 15:20 onwards, nothing happens when I begin to adjust the curve on the adjustment layer. Any ideas?

Hi Andrew,

Is it also possible to do it in reverse? What if I have a dark footage and want to make it lighter?

Further it's a perfect tutorial.

I doubt it because at night, most objects become greyscale and lose a lot of saturation. To get back the natural colour would be very difficult and adding non-parallel light (anything besides sunlight like spotlights etc.) is much easier than subtracting their effect so streetlight lighting correction would be difficult.
That being said, if anyone can do it, Andrew can! :)

Impressive Andrew! You have mad skills, I just wished I could SEE the colors like you do. I have a hard time visualizing what a shot should look like color wise. I can lay out a movie script in my head in 10 min it seems, but have trouble coloring a shot. Anyway very nice tutorial and you are the best!

I would like to use this effect but have it transition from day to night. Could I just have it transition from the original footage, and then go to sun down.

Hey Andrew,

a very good job by you.
i have 2 queries here.

the first is, how do i download the tutorials to my pc, and second

i'm doing a little video on a tattoo, and i wanted to make an OBB, so i was wondering if it would it be possible for you to show how to make an OBB... as if a tattoo is being done on a person. (like suppose i give the program a title, i would like to have the title come out in the form of a tattoo being performed)
i hope u get my meaning.

thanks.

Man! I have to say this is an AWESOME tutorial.

Very enlightening on a number of levels on how to use effects certain effects in general.

But, on the specifics of how to create a night shot from day, I have to say I was totally surprised and pleased to find such a clear and detailed explanation of how to do this.

GREAT job!
