Join Abba Shapiro for an in-depth discussion in this video Making color corrections, part of Migrating from Final Cut Pro 7 to Final Cut Pro X (2011).
The color correction tools in Final Cut Pro 7 were excellent, but I think…they've really taken them to the next level in Final Cut Pro X. Let's step into…the Color Correction project and take a look at some of the new features and…workflows in Final Cut Pro X when dealing with color.…Now this first scene was shot onstage during a performance and there were lots…of purple lights on our dancer.…What I want to do is I want to neutralize that cast.…I can do that very simply with a new feature Final Cut Pro X where we…can balance the color.…
I select the clip and I simply go over to the Inspector.…Now if your Inspector is closed, go ahead and hit Command+4.…You'll see there's a checkbox next to Balance and the word Analyzed.…If I check Balance, you see that the color cast is automatically neutralized and…I have nice tonality.…Now I'd analyzed this clip when we imported it, but if you didn't analyze the clip, …whatever frame you're parked on, Final Cut Pro X will analyze that frame…and apply the balance to the entire scene.…
