Join Ashley Kennedy for an in-depth discussion in this video Color correcting for style, part of Final Cut Pro X v10.1.x: Commercial Editing Techniques.
Okay.…Now that we've worked toward achieving…picture lock, we're ready to color correct the spot.…Now, in some cases, we would just be offering…a suggestion for color correction,…which would be officially carried out by…an online editor later in the process…on another color correction system altogether.…Sometimes, however, for smaller operations,…you'll be color correcting right within…the application.…Additionally, you'll always want to perform…color correction on your high res footage.…Now, as we know, right now, we have highly…compressed footage so that I could provide…you a reasonable download size for exercise files,…but when you color correct, you always want to…color correct your high res files.…
You don't have the high res files…in your exercise files, but I do, and I just want to…show you how to relink those, if you need to,…which you would if you were working in this…pseudo offline online workflow.…You can, of course, just color correct the compressed…exercise files that you have.…I'm just going to make sure that I'm at the top…
Note: This course was updated to reflect the changes to Final Cut Pro X v. 10.1.x. Although the course was not re-recorded from scratch, we updated the applicable movies by adding text overlays to guide you through existing changes. We also updated the exercise files to work with the most current version of the software. Please watch the "Understanding this update and using the exercise files" movie to learn exactly what to expect from this updated course. Working with an earlier version of Final Cut Pro X?
