Final Cut Pro X pulse college

Colour Correction using Final Cut Pro X

The easiest way to correct for color errors is to have Final Cut Pro X do it for you. It typically requires one click. However, it is important to understand what color balancing is, how it is done, what steps are taken, and in what order.

This one day workshop suits existing users of Final Cut Pro X or those editing on other NLEs wishing to understand colour correction more deeply. You will learn to read the videoscopes to inform adjustments. Perform primary and secondary colour correction using the FCPX Color Board, Wheels and Curves effects and even create and apply LUTs.
