Written by video professional Alexis Van Hurkman and updated for Final Cut Pro 5, this book provides comprehensive training in the real-world color correction and management skills editing pros use every day in the field the equivalent of a five-day course in one project-based book. Each chapter presents a complete lesson in some aspect of color correction, with hands-on projects for readers to complete as they go. Readers will learn how to maximize quality when color-correcting with Final Cut Pro, scene-to-scene color matching, correcting for broadcast specifications, changing color corrections midstream, day-for-night treatments, and more.
