    Good Day,

    I'm going to attempt to word it so as the goal is clear...

    What steps might I perform in Adobe Premiere 6.5, to take a
    clip from the state of being a still framed clip that has been
    converted to black & white to having its color restored
    gradually-(keyframed?) and then once the clip is back to the
    original color, set the scene in motion again

    (I don't mean moving the clip literally around so as to apply a
    motion path to it--I'm trying to say it from the viewer
    experience - basically paused black&white;unpaused in color)

    I hope I made some sense....

    Is this possible in Premiere 6.5?
    If so, what are the steps in general? (any detail would be very
    much appreciated--I'm no expert)

    Thanks any help is very much appreciated,

    use the HOLD frame technique in premiere. YOu can hold on either the in
    point of the clip or the outpoint.

    So Where you want to have freeze frames copy the clip you want. Set frame
    hold on the proper point (in - out)

    Perform your color changes and then continue with the same clip with no
    frame hold.

    Three clips in total. In clip, freeze clip, out clip. All of the actual
    first clip with different in/outpoints.

    Hey thanks-- Do you know how I would perform "the color changes".... That
    part I still don't know.

    use one of the color balance effects. HLS or RGB Drag it onto the clip and
    keyframe it over time. You'll probably only be changing the saturation.
