Hi! I am Robbie Carman and welcome to Color Correction with Final Cut Pro X. In this course, we will explore the Color Correction tools that are available to you in Final Cut Pro X--including some new tools like Shape Mask, Automatic Color Balance, and Color Matching--that weren't available in previous versions of the application. We will also take a look at how to make primary corrections, that is, corrections that affect the entire clip, while at the same time using the video scopes in Final Cut Pro X to help us make informed corrections. We will also talk about secondary corrections, that is, corrections that target a specific portion of a clip.
We'll also discuss creating looks with primary and secondary corrections, and along the way, we'll talk about the issue of Broadcast Safe. Without further delay, let's jump right into Color Correction with Final Cut Pro X.
