Yes, it's a stretch..I thought it might help some shooters who are uploading camera footage straight to Youtube [cough]..

Proof-of-concept only at this point, but if anyone can use it, the forthcoming Photoshop Action (actually a macro), once fully working, will be gratis..

I use a doubled CC Secondary for kind of a Vegas zebra FX. Actually it's more a "color" than a "zebra" but it works. See -> here.

Edit:
The project file download link in the other topic doesn't work no more. This screenshot shows how it's done with the Color Corrector Secondary. I use red to signal the clipped highlights and blue to signal the clipped lowlights.

Looks like the TSS Earnslaw at the end of the shot. Surely not. Where did the clip come from?

Yes, my earliest high-low clipping test actually started that thread, and I played with Secondary CC at that time too. The idea of zebras woke me up at 3 am today.

Truth be known, I'm addicted to writing Macros and Perl Regular Expressions, which are not very marketable these days.

He obviously travels far as I was surprised to see a scene from my far flung corner of the planet.

This is cool. I use an app called Cine Meter II that's pretty helpful too for evaluating certain scenes.

My attempt to make it react to chroma outliers (RGBCMY) is making it really sluggish.

I'll publish a simple Luminance Clipping action, a la camcorder zebras, maybe tomorrow.

Too bad it's for iThingies. A Droid version would be so cool.

Here's my result for now.

It's just show-and-tell because it uses a 3rd party program.
