How to Remove Horizontal Banding Artifacts from DSLR Footage

Caleb Pike has posted a video at DSLR Video Shooter for removing horizontal banding artifacts from DSLR footage using Final Cut Pro's "Limit Effect" tool. This technique should only come as a last resort, however, as the best offense is a good defense: shoot at 1/50 shutter speed in most European countries (or anywhere 50Hz electricity and/or PAL video is standard), and 1/60 in the US and other NTSC locales, and you should be fine.

I'm having the same problem with a series of interviews but I work with Adobe Premier Pro. Just wondering what the equivelant steps would be in Premier Pro to achieve the same effect.

Cheers,
Jake.

I believe the tool you'll want in Premiere Pro is the Lumetri Color effec. You'll use the HLS Secondary panel. You may want to use the three color wheels under correction instead of the single over all.

The interface is a bit different from that in Final Cut, but the function is the same, you're targeting a range of color/tone and effecting just those pixels.

Best of luck.
