All Editors Need Basic Color Grading and Correction Skills

Colorists spend years learning their craft and tools, but there’s no reason that you can’t learn some of the basics such color theory, color matching, and color grading. Knowing and utilizing even the most basic color grading tricks will give your projects the professional boost they deserve. Luckily, there are loads of tutorials and plug-ins to help you achieve the best results in a fast and easy manner.

First, let’s get the whole color grading vs. color correction spelled out. Color correction is what you do first to fix contrast, skin tones, bad white balance, color shifts, and that type of thing.

Color grading is the process of modifying the tones and colors in your project to give your footage a look or mood. These tutorials and tools often can do both. Sci-fi films tend to have crushed blacks and blueish tones. Romance movies may have warmer tones and a softer color palate. Action films often have saturated and contrasting colors.

Color Grading and Color Correction Tutorials

Color grading and color matching are great skills for any editor to have.

Premium Beat goes on to explain how to give your footage a vintage or retro feel. Check out their post, Learn Color Matching and Retro-Cool Color Grading in Final Cut Pro X, for more on that.

The plug-in we’re focusing on here is BCC Extruded EPS, which rovides an easy way to import and extrude Illustrator layered vector logos and graphics. The filter includes full integration with After Effects’ 3D camera and lighting system and incorporates the same 3D material presets and free-form deformation properties of other 3D Objects filters. The filter is capable of tracking an EPS file using a Watch Folder, making the EPS file “live” should it be edited in Illustrator. A handy “Keep EPS Color” feature lets operators preserve the original fill colors for each element as a diffuse color option of the materials.

Of course, you don’t have a 3D Camera in FCPX, like you do in After Effects, but don’t worry because there are adjustable camera parameters built right into this great plug-in.
