Join Robbie Carman for an in-depth discussion in this video Using Match Color, part of Final Cut Pro X: Color Correction (2011).
As a colorist, I work on a lot of shows every year.…And one of my main concerns is making sure that shots within a scene match each other…and that shots from scene to scene feel like they belong with one another.…In the past, to match shots you needed a keen eye and a deep understanding of…the video scopes to be able to match shots.…Well, Final Cut Pro X offers a very cool solution called MatchColor to match…shots quickly and pretty effortlessly.…And that's what we are going to take a look at in this movie.…This project contains a couple of shots from the same scene but there are two…different angles, and one of the angles has already had a look applied to it.…
So let's go ahead and scrub through this timeline.…And here on this first clip, you can see that it has pretty stylized, kind of…aggressive look to it.…But it doesn't match the flat look of this second shot at all.…What I actually want to do is have this second shot match the more stylized…look of this first shot.…Now, speaking of this first shot, I am pretty happy with it.…
