I filmed a video and because the lighting was uneven one side of the video is a little bit darker and less colorful, I was wondering if there is a way were I can color grade only one side of the video so It matches a little bit more with the other?

*And I did tried duplicating the video cropping only the right side and color grading it but it doesn't seem to sit well with the original video you can see the line in the middle .

What you need is a mask that you can feather the edge so that you don't have the hard line. Your idea should work. I just tried the gradient mask in ColorDirector to thumb down the exposure on the top right and leaving the exposure in the bottom right alone. See the attached.

If you use one of the mask in mask designer, uncheck maintain aspect ratio, and resize it properly, and feather the edge then it should work just as well without using ColorDirector.
