Video: Additional resources

Well, we've come to the end of this title. Hopefully, at this point, you're more comfortable with the Color Correction tools in Final Cut Pro X and some of the techniques to help you to get your footage to look just the way you want. Color Correction, like a lot of things in life, is a never-ending learning process. So I wanted to give you a few resources to help you continue your journey in learning more about Final Cut Pro X and Color Correction. First, if you're new to Final Cut Pro X, please be sure to check out my friend and colleague Abba Shapiro's excellent Final Cut Pro X Essential Training Course here on the lynda.com Online Training Library.

Well, we've come to the end of this title.

Color Correction, like a lot of things in life, is a never-ending learning process.

First, if you're new to Final Cut Pro X, please be sure to check out my friend and colleague Abba Shapiro's excellent Final Cut Pro X Essential Training Course here on the lynda.com Online Training Library.

If you are a Final Cut Pro 7 user making a transition to Final Cut Pro X, Abba also has a very good title on Migrating from Final Cut Pro 7 to Final Cut Pro X. Next is an amazing book by my good friend Alexis Van Hurkman called the Color Correction Handbook: Professional Techniques for Video and Cinema. This book guides you through the basics of color theory and progresses to a huge variety of techniques for primary and secondary color corrections. The cool thing is that it's essentially platform agnostic which makes the knowledge that you will pick up from this book portable to any Color Correction tool.

The other two resources I want to give you are online forums, where when you run into problems, you can quickly get questions answered, both technical ones as well as aesthetic ones. First up is Apple's own Support Community site for Final Cut Pro X, which you can find at discussions.apple.com/community/ professional_applications/final_cut_pro_x. The other place I would recommend is the Final Cut Pro X Forum, specifically the Apple Final Cut Pro X Techniques forum on CreativeCOW.net. CreativeCOW is one of the largest and most visited online creative application communities, and I think that you will find it to be a great resource as you delve further into color correction in Final Cut Pro X. That's the end, and I wanted to say thanks for watching.

I hope you had as much fun as I did. Now, get out there and start color- correcting and grading your footage with Final Cut Pro X.
