I'm currently editing a music video that uses a single shot, but it progresses through many different scenes and lighting conditions. What I'm doing is keyframing the different color corrections so they smoothly transition as the camera pans across different sets.


The problem I'm having is that during the transition from one correction to the next, the marker rises up into the pink area. This gives the transition and awkward and unwanted pink/red hue at the peak of the transition before it settles down into what I wanted.


An example is one scene I keyframe a warm yellow and as it transitions into the scene I keyframe a cool blue. But during the transition, the marker rotates around the middle of the corrected and always goes up into the pink area instead of just simply going from Point A to point B

I'm sure it's just a setting I've clicked as it was working fine before



I'm using the color corrector 3-way

    You might try adding edits using the blade tool and dissolving between the color corrections rather than keyframing.   When you keyframe, it's got to get from one color setting to another so the parameters will have to change over time which is what I imagine is happening to you.   Not sure how my scheme would work, but worth a try.
