In this course, author Ashley Kennedy illustrates how to correct color imbalances or create a specific mood in pre-edited video with the complete color correction workflow in Avid Media Composer. The first color correction stage demonstrates how to manually correct footage by white balancing, removing color cast, correcting flesh tones, and correcting luma and chroma values in both the HSL and Curves groups, and explores the Avid automatic color correction functions. The second color correction stage focuses on achieving shot-to-shot consistency with templates and color match controls. In the final stage, Ashley investigates more creative color treatments, such as applying a gritty or bleached look to the footage.

  • Understanding the creative goals of each project
  • Setting up the Media Composer environment specifically for color correction
  • Performing a correction from start to finish in the HSL group
