hey guys, I always see some of you respond to a question about a scene that may need low or dim lighting. The respinse tends to be "film in normal light, then make it night in postprod" or soemthing to that effect. I always just said to myself "haha yeah I know how todo that", well i just tried it and umm...I don't know how to. I figured you would just mess around with the brightness and contrast effect panel (AE 5.5). Earlier today, I tried making one of my clips into a night scene using that method, but it just looks sucky after I do that, and now looks as if its a poorly done daytime shot.... Any help is, as always, greatly apprectiated. thanks in advance all EDIT: And nice job to whoever won the Forum art contest! i just noticed and it looks great!
