Join Frank Rohmer for an in-depth discussion in this video The three-way color corrector, part of Final Cut Pro 6 Workflow.
You know, the color correction capabilities within Final Cut Pro are so powerful and actually very easy to use. …And I can't tell you how many times I've use a color correction to save me on a multitude of projects. …And it's unfortunate, because one of the top mistakes that videographers make is getting …an incorrect white balance out in the field, if they get one at all; they may forget completely. …So, you know I will get this footage in that has a strong tint of blue that I am told "fix it." …Or I will get a strong tint of yellow that I have to make look better. …And so I'm not a colorist. I am an editor and an videographer.…
And so I want to be able to get in real quick, clean it up, and get out and get on with my editing. …And that's what I am going to teach you. …I am going to teach you how to easily make color correction work for you within Final Cut Pro. …So what I would like you do is create a brand- new DV project, okay, a brand-new DV project, and …call it Color Correction. …All right, and save this project in your project folder on the desktop so you can get to it later. …
