Hi,

could you please give me a tip regarding color correction? When I edit my videos, I first apply the color correction, then add transitions - I noticed that when I add dissolve to my sequence, Lightworks uses the raw clip, which results in some bad looking color shifts - how can I solve this issue? Thank you for help.

Welcome to the forum.

Are you using folded effects when applying your dissolves?

Thank you! Nice to be here. I unfolded the effects, then I tried to manually adjust the length of the effect but it seemed to make it even worse.

Usually, if you wish to dissolve between segments with effects, folded is the way to go.

Is this colour correction one that you've dragged over a number of segments or does each one have it's own colour correction effect?

Is there a colour shift happening during the dissolve.

I used different color corrections, as I recorded the clips in separate locations.
Here's the video - the jump is between 0:15 and 0:16

And here's how it looks in Lightworks:

Your effects are unfolded, which means that they're being applied after the dissolve. If they were folded they would be applied before the dissolve and you wouldn't see the problem.

To fix the problem you will need to fold them in, which means that you will have to first remove the dissolve. Since that will make the cut between your clips at the centre of the dissolve you will need to trim the position of the cut to match the cut in the effects. You will also need to place matching cuts on FX3 to be able fold it in should that be necessary.

Once you have the effects folded in you will be able to re-apply your dissolve(s) and there will be no jumps in your effects.
