Reduce noise using color temp setting?

    When shooting in low light (e.g. a ballet), the blue channel usually has the
    most noise.

    If I set the color temp to lower than the actual value during shooting so
    that the picture looks slightly bluish (i.e. giving more light to the blue
    channel), and then correct the white balance during post, there should be
    less noise in the blue channel. Would this result in an overall noise
    reduction?

    What is the easiest way to correct the bluish picture in premiere cs4? It
    doesn't have a color temperature video effect. The closest is a color
    balance effect, not sure if this would accurately undo the effect of the
    lower color temp.

    The camcorder I use is a canon XH-A1.

  2. I find both of these nearly unusable much of the time for fine-tuning color,
    and these are also in PhotoShop Elements. I did once find a proper three
    color adjustment control in PS-E (buried deeply and not at all obviously
    located) in the menus, so Premiere probably also has something similar.
    Vegas makes this easy, as likely do most editors. A "color balance effect"
    in Premiere should be able to do what is wanted, maybe combined with
    other effect(s) to restore/maintain best tonality.
    An interesting idea...;-)
