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 a Vectorscope is and how to use it in Apple Final Cut Pro X.
- The last videoscope we're going…to explore is the vectorscope.…Let's see how we can use it to determine…if a person's skin tone is healthy…along with the amount of saturation in a given shot.…Here I am in my 1.4 project,…and we're about to look at a new scope,…and that's the vectorscope.…We've brought up the scope in a couple different ways.…We've gone to the window menu…and chosen our color correction workspace,…but in this instance I'm going to press command 7,…which is just a great shortcut to either hide…or reveal your scopes.…We're going to get rid of this RGB parade…which we looked at in the last movie…and actually add to our scope menu,…we're going to choose to look at our vectorscope.…
And after we choose to look at our vectorscope,…here we can compare it to the images on our right-hand side.…But one thing we want to keep in mind…is this is a color wheel,…and as mentioned in an earlier movie,…you add the colors to get to white.…And on top of this line, what this vectorscope…is primarily used for is to tell you…
