Automated fix

Alright I have some video that I am editng that came from old film reels. Its very dark in spots and has other "should be obvious" problems. So what I have done is exported a small sample clip from after effects, so that you can actually see it in motion, but I have also exported each frame (1844 images) to a seperate psd file. Do you guys think It would be worth it to have some sort of automation process (action) that can be applied to the pics to make them look better?

Here is the sample video 12.3mb

Image thumbnail previews:

previewpage_1
previewpage_2
previewpage_3
previewpage_4

File Type: jpg pageview_3.jpg (97.2 KB, 2 views)
File Type: jpg pageview_4.jpg (98.6 KB, 3 views)

Wow!!! 1844 frames to fix ....

If the problem/s in them is the same or similar, I think it could be possible to write one or more actions and use the Automate>Batch to run them on a batch of pictures ....

You should get in touch with Danny Paphael ... he is our action expert...

I assume you tried to clean this up in after effects first, I think that is what I would do unless I have a ton of time and nothing else to do You can apply the same cureves levels etc there to the whole piece.

The main problem is one action will not work becasue several frames are different, it seems to form a pattern though so maybe several actions applied to a range of frames might get you close. To make this really work there is a ton of clean up. I know some old films can be chemically treated before the are re-mastered, I don't know much about it though.

Thanks for your responses, I'm still not sure what the best way to go about doing all of this is. How do I get in touch with Danny Paphael?

I played around with it a little in AE but not much, the curves feature doesnt seem to be as user friendly as it is in ps... but this may be my best option

I'm not familar with nor have ever used After Effects, but if it has the ability to apply corrections "en mass," I would sure give that a look.

There may be hope, too, from a Photoshop actions and batch processing perspective. Conceptually, one would:
* Open a representative file
* Create an action to "correct" that one
* Create a destination folder for processed images
* Isolate the files to be processed by the action into a separate folder
* Invoke Automate > Batch and specify the action, source and destination folders

The downside here may be that a given action will apply the same effects to each file. If that's not acceptable in most cases an action can be modified to pause at one or more commands enabling one to make custom adjustments, too. As creekuk noted, multiple actions may be necessary to correct different types of problems.

How else can I help?
