Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Color matching, part of After Effects Apprentice: 16 Creating a Medical Opening Title.
Another important design consideration when you're using multiple pieces of video …is to give them all roughly the same color look, particularly when you're…using stock footage that might have come from different sources.…As you can see here, some of these videos are darker than the others.…These two are darker than these two and some have different color tints.…These are bit on the warm side, these are bit on the cool side …and this final video has a bit of a yellowish tint and is bit on the dark side itself.…
So let's pick a video that we particularly like or color-correct one video to match …with the client wants and use that as our guide to correct the other videos to tie everybody together.…Now I kind of like the colorization of this first video.…I like the brightness, the greens and blues aren't too far often the greens…and blues are already existing elsewhere in this project, so I think I'm going…to use that as my rough visual guide to alter these other videos and try to get them to match.…
