Using HSL Secondary to Darken an Object

Greetings

 

I have an object in a video shot that is over-exposed. I've isolated most of it by it's dominant color with HSL secondary. I'd like to just darken it or redeuce the white level, not change color. Is it possible to do that?

 

It's actually the face of a guitar which is moving slightly throughout the clip so using an opacity mask will require keyframe automation and my older computer won't handle that very well.

The Lumetri panel's HSL Secondary tab has two sections ... the upper part, where you set the key. And the lower part, where you change the pixels selected by that key.

 

So after making your selection and using the mask, say gray/color, to be sure where you're key is active, you turn the mask back off and use the color wheel/s and sliders below it to affect that area.

 

The color wheel in the HSL Secondary tab at first shows as one over-all wheel, but if you click the little 3-wheel icon there, it opens up the full three-wheel Shadows, Mids, and Highlights as in the Color Wheels tab. Just use the luma slider on the Highlights tab to pull that down.
