This comprehensive guide starts out with primary correction in Final Cut Pro 7 and moves on to the fine points of secondary grading and color effects in Color 1.5. Revised with remarkable clips from TNT’s hit show Leverage as well as HD footage shot around the world, the book takes you step by step through Color’s new features, including 4K and RED workflows and improved round-trip integration with Final Cut Pro. Topics include color balancing, scene matching, using keys and vignettes to isolate and grade regions, applying advanced color effects, adjusting the composition and framing of a shot, tracking and keyframing, grade management, and advanced workflows. A special chapter on creating specific “looks” offers recipes for some of the most useful grades in a colorist’s toolbox.
