Join Robbie Carman for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a leave-behind color look, part of Color Correction in Final Cut Pro X.
Popularized by films like Pleasantville and countless commercials and music…videos, the Leave Color Behind look has become really popular.…In this movie, I am going to show you how you can quickly create this look by…using a secondary color correction in Final Cut Pro X. This project contains a…clip that I think would look pretty cool if we were to keep the fire here in…color and desaturate the rest of the shot.…The Leave Color Behind look is a nice one to choose when you have one bold…color in a shot that you want to isolate and enhance, just like we do in this…shot with the red fire.…So what I'm going to do is come down to the shot here, and select it in the…timeline, and then use the keyboard shortcut Command+4 to open up the Inspector.…
Here in the Inspector in the Color section, you can see that the shot already…has a correction applied to it.…This of course is the default correction that every shot in Final Cut Pro X has.…Now, I've used this correction to perform a primary color correction.…
