    When I came up with those RGBAdust() values I was using the left half of the image in post #19. I don't know exactly what processing you did on that half of the image but you'll have to adjust the RGBAdjust() values to suit the original video.

    When I converted the section of the script I mistakenly left out one line, the ColorYUV() after Overlay(). That darkened the image and increased the saturation a bit.

    I usually just open the video in AviSynth, export the frame, then use an image editor that shows X,Y locations.

    You can try looking at blacks or pure greys as a guide but that probably won't work as well.

    You can look for anything else with a known color and try to match that color.

    You can alter any of them. I chose to make red and blue match green in this case because green was in the middle. Making green and blue match green would have brightened the image. Making red and green match blue would have darkened the image.

    For all pure shades of grey, R=G=B. Of course, in the real world things that are "white" are rarely pure white. You can make the scene a little warmer by leaving red a little higher and blue a litter lowe than green. Or make the scene a little colder by making blue a little higher and red a little lower.

    I don't now what the correct colors are for those images. Maybe the video pans around or something else passes through the frame -- look for something you think should be white. Otherwise, just guess and do what looks good to you.

    But, as was mentioned earlier: there are much easier tools than AviSynth for adjusting colors. Most video editors have tools for that.

    AvsPmod has a built-in tool for cropping. Video -> Crop editor.
