This new tutorial series is produced by Michael Wohl, whom many of you know from our Final Cut 101: Core Final Cut 6 tutorials, while other know Michael as one of the original designers of Apple's Final Cut Pro software.

Color is like candy for video producers. It allows you to remove that annoying video "haze" by popping your contrast and saturation to make the images on the screen look sharp and professional. But you can't correct your video's color without understanding the science behind the edits you are making, and that's where this tutorial really sparkles.

If you've seen any of Michael's movies, you know he's a master story teller. More than most people, Michael knows how screen color adds to the emotional effect of moving pictures. Subtle corrections, like adding blush to the cheeks of an embarrassed character, or changing a dull gray ocean into a vibrant blue tropical sea ... these subtle changes can make or break a video, and color is the perfect tool for the Job.

But Color doesn't stop there! With the ability to do complex secondary color correction, Color lets you change certain hues in the frame without affecting others. Turn a living, green forest into a dead brown, and depressing scene. Change a character's shirt from pink to red. Add Color's sophisticated motion tracking abilities into the mix, and your red shirt will stick to the character, even as the character moves around the scene. This is some mind blowing stuff, and you'll learn how it works as you watch this tutorial.
