Final Cut Pro X does color and master coloristMichael Wohl, macProVideo's video Final Cut Pro X Guru, shows you everything this awesome new program can do to make your productions color-coordinated!
First, Michael takes you through FCP X's Basic Color Adjustments. Say goodbye to the color wheel. Here comes Color Board: Apple's way of making the color correction process easier to grasp. Michael explains how the Color Board and its linear interface works and how you can use it most effectively! He explains color balancing using FCP X's intuitive new color controls. For all the musicians out there: if you've ever used an audio EQ, you will feel right at home with these new "EQ-like" interface elements! From there, MIchael takes us to the quick and powerful one-click Color Match tool with some wonderful "before and after" examples. Very cool stuff, indeed!
In the next section, Primary Corrections, Michael takes us into the Scopes: the Waveform Monitor, Vectorscope and Histogram. Scopes show you the science behind what you're seeing and he explains how they work and why you need to understand how to use them.
In the Secondary Corrections section, you will learn all about Color Masks and Shape Masks. MIchael explores all the cool features build right into FCP X to keyframe the masks while limiting your color effects to specific areas of the frame. Finally, there's a cool section on managing Grades.
So if you want to know how well Final Cut Pro X does color, join Michael Wohl as he teaches you all the advanced color techniques that FCP X offers. You'll see how great it is to have a friendly expert like Michael Wohl to keep you from painting yourself into that color correction corner!

Working with colors is much more important than I imagined.
I have to revisit this course soon.
That is because evert chapter had something new to offer.
This was a great one.

Colors can get as complex as you want to, my conclusion is that I didn't have an idea how hard is color editing, great video. Gonna have to watch a few more times to remember though.

This is a very enjoyable introduction to FCP X's colour correction/grading tools. Michael explains the different steps in an easy but also clear way. The tips are important to know and should be learned by all who are serious about colour. I would recommend this tutorial to all.
