You can see a lot with your eyes but when it comes to trying to objectively analyze color, they will never give you a straight answer. This is why in color correction it’s important to use videoscopes. In this video, author Nick Harauz explains what the RGB Parade is and how to use it in Apple Final Cut Pro X.
- Now that we've taken a look at how…the luma waveform views luminance in the image,…let's take a look at how the RGB Parade…will allow us to see color.…Usually the first step with our RGB Parade…is to see that we have a properly balanced image.…Let's see how we can read it to figure this out.…So here I am in my chapter 1-3 project.…You can actually find that in your media browser…in the chapter one folder of your project's event,…if you double-click to open that up.…And we left off last movie by going to…our color correction workspace, and we switched…the video scope over to a luma scope, but here,…we're going to take a look at the RGB Parade.…
To bring that up, simply go to your Scope menu first of all,…and we're going to keep this on as Waveform,…but head over to the RGB Parade.…And it will be nice, in this case,…to look at this with color, so we'll go to the View menu…and make sure that Monochrome is turned off.…So your video image is made of red, green, and blue pixels,…and in fact you add red, green, and blue pixels…
