Join Connor Watson for an in-depth discussion in this video Correcting problems with exposure, part of Final Cut Express 4 Essential Training.
In this exercise we are going to tackle what is probably the most common video…problem around, over and under-exposed shots. The first thing we need to do is…apply the Color Correct filter. So go to the Effects tab in the browser and…open the folder named Color Correction and drag the Color Corrector to the…first clip in the sequence. Double click on the first clip so we can access the…filter controls in the Viewer by clicking on the Color Corrector tab.…Since we are going to be working mostly in the Viewer and Canvas windows, go…ahead and maximize the viewing area by switching to the Compositing layout.…

Q: After changing the Mac OS X Expose keys to dashes as instructed in the tutorial, the Expose keys -F9, F10, and F11- retain their Expose functions and override the Final Cut keyboard shortcuts. Why have the keys kept their original functions?
A: After setting the Expose Settings to dashes, go into the Mac OS X System Preferences and choose Keyboard. Once there, click on the Keyboard tab, then click to check the box "Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys.” This should release F9, F10, and F11 from their Expose functions and allow them to be uses as editing keys in Final Cut.
