Color Correction Video Tutorial

Balancing color casts using the color wheels in Apple Color

By Steve Hullfish | September 15, 2008

This is the second in a series of more than two dozen color correction tutorials that will be part of the upcoming revised edition of "Color Correction for Video" from Focal Press. This tutorial shows how to use the color wheels to eliminate a color cast. Future tutorials will show how to do the same thing using Color's Advanced Tab's RGB sliders and Curves.

The tutorial is an H.264 file about 4 minutes in length and 18 Megs.

Other tutorials to come include secondary color correction tutorials, "creating looks," using the Color FX room in Color, color correction in Avid, color correction in Synthetic Aperture's Color Finesse (used as a plug-in in Adobe products and as a stand alone) and more. Make sure to add this as an RSS feed so you don't miss a single tutorial.

Steve, Thanks for the vids. I’ve enjoyed the books as well. Keep it up. Tell the Fowlers hi. =)

Thanks for the first two installments on color correction. I love this stuff yet do not really know what I am doing. I have been mostly dragging sliders and checking the results. You have already removed the fear within me towards Apple Color. My latest two projects have been “corrected” in Color rather than with the Color Corrector in FCP.
