Clipping

Symptom #1: Areas of Flat and Gray Footage

“Some bright areas of my footage look flat and gray when I color correct them.”

Background

This type of distortion, or clipping, occurs any time your luminance levels exceed the highest possible value of the system you are working with. If you stay between 0 and 110 IRE, you can see values in luminance change. But you can’t get any brighter than 110 IRE and once you hit that wall, you’ll see clipping.
