Color Correction Video Tutorial

Balance color using Advanced Tab of Apple Color

By Steve Hullfish | September 22, 2008

This is another in what will become a series of two dozen color correction tutorials that will be in the revised edition of Focal Press' "Color Correction for Video." This episode shows how to balance a severely mis-white balanced camera chart using the Advanced Tab in the Primary Room of Apple's Color.

Last week, I balanced the exact same image using the color wheels. Next week, I'll balance the same image using the Curves, which is similar top using the Advanced tab, except that you have more specific control (instead of just three tonal ranges) and it is more intuitive for those who like to visualize what they are doing.

Other color correction tutorials will include setting up a JLCooper Eclipse CX color correction panel and doing corrections in Color with secondaries, the geometry room, the still store and the Color FX room. We'll also explore color correcting in FCP, Avid and Synthetic Aperture's Color Finesse inside of Adobe Premiere and After Effects.

Hi Steve, Great series, but this video seems to cut off at the 3min40s mark. It seems incomplete.
