Sometimes automatic color matching will not work well. This is when you will want to match a shot manually with the help of video scopes and the color correction effect in Apple Final Cut Pro X. In this video, author Nick Harauz walks you through how to color match shots manually in Final Cut Pro X.
- So sometimes automatic color matching won't work so well.…This is when you'll want to match a shot manually…with the help of video scopes and the Color Inspector.…Let's see how we could do this.…So in this movie we're going to…color correct a shot manually.…I'm here in my Chapter 2-5 project…and I've got two clips inside here,…and here you can see my first clip.…You can see the way the shot looks here in the RGB Parade.…Great scope here for judging first of all…the luminance in an image, as well as just…seeing if an image is color balanced or not,…so when we're color matching manually,…we do want to usually go through the three scopes.…
We do want to go, first of all, to our Luma Waveform…where we can find out how these shots line up…in terms of its luminance, followed by the RGB Parade…to make sure the shots are similarly balanced,…followed by our Vector Scope to see if there are…equal amounts of saturation in each of the images.…So just looking at here we can see that there's…more contrast in the first shot definitely…
