If you have ever color corrected stills in a photo editing application, you might feel right at home using Apple Final Cut Pro X’s Color Curves. How do you use curves to color correct video footage? In this video, join author Nick Harauz as he walks you through how to adjust your video clips with curves in Final Cut Pro X.
- In this movie, we're going to take a look at…the color curves correction in a few clips on our timeline…and see how this may be different than the RGB curves…you might be familiar with working in other applications.…So I'm here in my chapter 3.1 project…which you can find in your chapter three folder…of your projects events and we're going to take a look at…working and adjusting our clips with curves…of course in conjunction with our video scope…which we've learned throughout this course.…I'm going to press command seven to pull them up…and I'm going to close down my browser over here…on the left hand side by clicking on that…and right now I am looking at the luma waveform.…
If you're currently not on this,…you can click here on the scope…and change your waveform to luma.…We want to make sure the view is set to that of monochrome…just to strip the image of color…and get an overall sense for how our image is balanced.…So I can see that there's a lack of deep shadows…as well as it's not all the way…or as bright as it can be here in the highlights…
