Join Diana Weynand for an in-depth discussion in this video Altering your story's "look" using the Color Board, part of Effective Storytelling with Final Cut Pro X v10.1.x.
- Making your clips their best…may seem like a technical job,…but as a story teller it's important…to make your clips look as good as they can,…so your audience isn't distracted…by something as easy to fix…as, say, color balance,…but there are other ways you can impact…the look and feel of your clips…that will support and enhance your story.…Let's take a look.…In the project library, let's open The Color Project.…This project contains a clip of Paul…and four cutaways covering a portion…to describe a portion of what he's saying.…
Let's take a look at what he is saying…and the clips that match his audio.…- So what was the risk?…There was no risk.…It was clear.…It was clear that all the pieces of the puzzle…were there if you focus on people.…If you focus on product,…then the risk was incredible.…The risk was a 75,000 dollar risk.…But when you see all these pieces come together,…in a certain kind of way,…and you know that the one thing that's missing is you,…and the story has come to you,…and you're ready...…
- So, these are the clips that we want to consider.…
