Tip: Simple Color Correction



In an effort to post more content (something viewers keep asking me to do), I thought I'd try a monthly tip segment. These are ideas that aren't fully fleshed-out enough for a "real" episode, but could be useful.

Today I'm talking about color correction, something I'm not very good at. Learning a basic truth about the color wheel opened a huge door of understanding for me and I had to share it. Again, I'm far from an expert (even calling me a novice might be a stretch) on this topic and am just passing it on.

Feel free to tell me what you think of the "quick and dirty" format and the more simplistic content. This in no way replaces the official show, but will give those who have wanted more something to chew on between the meatier episodes.

What is the cheapest way that one could color correct their movies/videos?
I've seen that there is software like After Effects, but it costs a lot of money.
What program are you using in this video?

@Anonymous -- If you're attempting to edit and color correct the majority of your footage in an effects/compositing software, you're going to be wasting a lot of time.

The reason any good non-linear editing software has a color corrector is so that you can do it all in one spot. So, the cheapest way is to do that work in your editing software.

If you're looking at the Adobe brand of products, Premiere will accomplish what Scott is showing in Vegas.
