In this episode we'll be covering white balance, Final Cut Pro X's built-in Match Color feature, and how to utilize a color checker if your DP or Cinematographer shot one while on set. You can follow along with this tutorial by grabbing the ProRes files here http://d.pr/f/INxdeZ and the Color Finale Demo here http://d.pr/w1J0Hu
In this episode we'll be working closely with shape masks, color masks, and a combination of the two. We'll learn how to color correct just smaller parts of an image based on a shape or just a single color range. Techniques you learn here can also be used to recreate the Pleasantville effect or, in a more contemporary example, season 2 of Breaking Bad's flash forwards, where the iconic pink teddy bear is floating in the pool.
In this episode we’ll cover the process of roundtripping from Final Cut Pro X over into DaVinci Resolve for color corrections and then back into FCP X for any finishing touches we might want to make.
