Great tutorial, even if you have a newer version of final cut is still worth to watch this videos.

Such an important course, I loved learning a bit about color correction. It was hard for me (not native english speaker) understanding Jamie (sorry!) and sometimes sound is not great (and some media is missing) but at the end I really appreciated!

I purchased this alongside the 101 course, and it was money well spent. Colour correction is such a major part of successful video / film, and these tutorials certainly aided my development, allowing me to achieve great results quickly.
I was however a little disappointed with the length of this tutorial when compared to the main FCP (101) set, and do feel that a little more ground could have been covered. Also, I have to say that the presentational style was lacking when compared to some other MPV products – the guy knows his stuff, but sounded a little board in some of his delivery!
Overall, a good tutorial, but could have been a little better in my view.

Voice was a bit hard to hear and to understand (quiet and unmodulated) but the tutorial had me correcting the color of a badly white balanced interview in no time at all. Solid help with a well laid out course.

In my opinion this Tutorial is quite comprehensive and covers all the Color Correction in FCP 6.

I've always wanted to learn colour correction in FCP but have never had the time, nor people around me who can show me what it all means. This class was great in that it explained everything clearly and succinctly, and at a price that can't be beat.

I do like the course. Color correction is not easy but this course is more helpfull than reading a book about that topic. That is for me.

Jamies Color correcting toturial helped me to understand how to correct my images to give them a natual look and clips I thought unuserble were saved and userble after applying Jamies technics. Including a clip with my first child very first step. Being able to use that clip alone more than justified the price og the Tutorial.
