  1. Once you set the Decolor to 100% the video instantly goes black and white with the exception only being the color you want to leave. I tried the same thing and it didn't work. Did you skip a step you didn't show in the video.

    Can you leave in 2 colors at a time instead of just 1?

  2. so how do you do it if the object of which you are trying to keep the color in place is a moving object and is in different places per frame????

  4. Dream sequences or places where you need to draw attention to one item to make a dramatic point. Otherwise you wouldn't use it much.

Just a tiny suggestion – instead of duplicating a clip (or "layer" as you say it) in the timeline, it would be better to nest that clip, and then use two instances of that nested (tone/color corrected) clip. This way one escapes a trap – if one later decides to do changes to the original clip, one would have to do the same changes on two different clips/layers (or make changes on one and then copy&paste to the other), which is unnecessary time consuming and prone to errors.
