When I am using the comparison view/color match tool, sometimes I click and nothing happens, and other times it just says "Analyzing..." and nothing changes as well, and when I click it again it just goes back to "Apply Match".
Anyone else have this issue? When it does work, it works great.
Sorry for the trouble. Is this happening with all projects? Please check with a new project.
If yes, try resetting the preferences & check. Steps: FAQ: How to reset preferences in Premiere Pro?
Hello, I have the same issue as directorballb58989569.
I already reset the preferences and updated the app, yet the color match still only works on 2/10 clips. I clicl "Apply match" button, and it isn't doing anything.
Is there anything that can be done to fix?
Huh. I can't replicate this.
I go to Comparison mode in the Program Monitor, select a reference frame for the left side, then click the timeline and arrow or whatever to select the frame to correct.
Click the Apply Match button and it just works.
One of the easier to apply tools they've made.
So, not having had this, or seen much comments on it here, I'm trying to think what it could be.
Sometimes it just does nothing.
I have not found a fix yet.
That would really be a pain. Speaking politely on this public forum. Wish I had a clue how to help, other than trying the nuclear option.
Which is downloading the Adobe CC Cleaner Tool, using that to do BOTH the uninstall of PrPro and cleanup of related files. Then reboot and from the CC app download/install a fresh copy.
And see if that works.
Also, definitely file this on the new bug system for these forums.
I'm having this issue as well. Occasionally Color Match works but, more often than not, it does absolutely nothing. No Beach Ball; no color shift; no anything.
Might go to your GPU's manufacturer's website, and make sure you have the latest driver installed. Oh ... are you on the 2018 12.x builds series, or the 2019 13.x build series?
I may have found the solution to this problem. I first encountered this problem by selecting a clip in the timeline, then selecting that clip's lumetri effect (which I had applied earlier) under the effects controls tab for that clip. From there, under Color Wheels and Match section, I was clicking on the Comparison View and Apply Match buttons. By approaching my color matching from this angle, I was experiencing the same "analyzing" hang up that others experienced here. What I was doing wrong it seems, was selecting my reference clip in the timeline, ie, whatever the first frame of the selected clip was, and proceeding from there. The solution seems to be to select the Lumetri Color tab listed under the Effects view, located on the right hand side of my setup. From here, go to the Color Wheels and Match section, click Comparison view, and from the comparison view window, select the reference frame using the slider bar. By doing this, then clicking the Apply Match button, I no longer got the infinite "analyzing" problem. Sorry if this is a bit cryptic. To sum up, don't select your reference frame form a single clip, but navigate to it from within the comparison view window which gives you access to the entire sequence. Hope this helps.
Great addition to the thread there!
Same problem. Doesn't seem to matter how I approach this issue. I can't seem to find a fix. I'm literally 100% suck.
Provide a detailed set of steps that you're following, preferably with a few screen-grabs drag/dropped into your reply box so we see them in your post.
It sounds to me like some users do not have the "Current" clip selected, which could definitely yield these results. I recommend using the Color workspace because it enables "Selection follows playhead" which will ensure that you always have the clip under the playhead selected.
As a recap, these are the steps to successfully use Color Match
Pro Tip: If the shots are incredibly different, like the exposure is wildly different, it helps to get them into the ballpark first with basic corrections. The color wheels can only do so much, but Color Match is smart enough to take into account any corrections done upstream of the Color Wheels when calculating the match. If you run a match and it pegs any of the color wheels parameters, it means the shots are too different, and the color wheels don't have enough latitude to make the match.
Thanks for popping in Francis.
And for those who don't know, he's one of the color engineers ... and I so appreciate his popping in here!
I have done everything exactly as each person on this thread has described and my Color Match will not get out of the "Analyzing" mode. I really need this tool to work. Is this a bug?
"Everything above" is not necessarily all that useful.
What is your computer ... especially OS/CPU/RAM/GPU ... what is your media, how was it created by what? ... any other effects as time remapping, noise reduction, or Warp Stabilizer? ... and what steps specifically are you taking to start the color match?
Are you applying the Lumetri Color on a specific clip or the "Master" tab under Effect Controls?
I found that Color Match never works for me if I try to do it on the Master track.
The workaround I use is to apply the Color Match on a specific clip and then Copy + Paste it on the Master tab.
The comment about Color Match if working with the Master Clip tab might be the issue.
You can apply Lumetri to a clip on the Master Clip tab, and that correction will now apply to every instance of that clip (or segment thereof) throughout the project.
But if you do anything on a Master clip for a clip, and move to another clip, Premiere automatically jumps to the 'normal' clip tab. So if you try and ColorMatch to the Master Clip Lumetri of an earlier clip, Premiere will take the final total result ... the MC instance of Lumetri and anything you may have done in the standard tab, and try to match that.
And if you set the current clip to be matched to the Master Clip tab, and try and match to any earlier clip, Premiere just sits there doing nothing when you tap the "Analyze" button.
You can copy a Lumetri instance or several even from the ECP, then right-click and paste on a clip/s in a bin, and Premiere will apply that Lumetri selection to the Master Clip tab for all selected clips.
But you can't "Apply Match" to a Master Clip. Sadly.
One thing that I recently came across in a project is that the clip I was trying to apply the color match to had the time interpolation set to optical flow instead of frame sampling and it also had reverse speed applied. After resetting those parameters back to their defaults, I was able to get the color match to analyze as opposed to doing nothing like it was initially. After I applied the color match I was also able to revert the time interpolation/reverse speed settings I had and it didn't interfere with the color matching. Not sure if this is some weird bug but I'm working in version 23 (build 63).
Oh, nice post! Yea, I can see the reverse time ramped clip could be problematic for that sort of computation. But it hadn't occurred to me to assume so.
That is what fixed the problem for me. I was trying to do a color match on a speed ramped clip and it wouldn't work. I did the color match on the one that wasn't speed ramped and just pasted that on my clip.
