Now as we know in Final Cut we've got the basic color correction tools such as…the 3-Way Color Corrector, which is good for making some basic corrections.…And then of course there's also Apple Color, which has a deep powerful color…correction toolset, but does require a fair amount of rendering if you're…bouncing backwards and forwards between color correction and effects creation.…The other thing to say about Apple Color is that while it's a very powerful…application, it also requires an investment of time and effort in order to learn…it and become proficient.…
Now let's compare the Color Corrector inside of Media Composer.…Well, first off, it's built into the system, so there isn't the render problem of…going backwards and forwards between color correction and effects creation.…It's also simpler than Apple Color for sure. It doesn't have as many options in…terms of power windows.…But it's a very robust tool and it will do for 90% of the things that you need…to do on a daily basis.…So let's dive in and see how it works.…
