Mobile device color change

Postby stayhigh on 06/13/2015, 11:10 am

I have a really simple task to change a mobiles device from one color to another (form blue to red for example). I have masked the device and I'm using the color change/change to color effect but it doesn't work. The footage gets extremely grainy. It is grainy to begin with but when I apply some of the cc effects (hue, change color etc) it becomes really bad. I tried using blurs and remove grains and even red/blue channel (where the noise is the worst) blurs but it doesn't work. Anyone had this problem? >-||

Easiest way is to do this thinking in HSV - Hue - Saturation - Value, so create a solid with the desired tone, then mask it out and use the color transfer mode to colorize the device in the desired hue. Then, if you need to match lighter/darker tones, create a separate layer and use brightness/contrast or curves to shift the value (as in brightness) but keep the highlights intact...
