Re: Tutorial: Learn Media Composer Lesson 62: Basic Color Correction TWO
by Bill Ravens
Hey Kevin,

Love your tutorials, they've furthered my skills immensely.

Short comment on color correction. I've found the eyedropper method of color timing a clip somewhat less than perfect. A much better way to do this is to look at the RGB Parade instead of the WFM. Looking at the RGB parade, the wheels, or for more control, the individual color curves, can be used. The object in making a adjustment is to level the RGB Parade curves in the shadows region. The same can be done in the mid-tones and Hi-lites, but, a little more discretion is needed.

In this lesson, Kevin P McAuliffe answers a viewer question about the ability to do transfer modes (composite modes) inside of MC and Symphony 6. The viewer is currently using a free plug-in with MC 5.5, but since the plug-in is 32-bit, it won't work inside of MC6/Symphony 6, as they are 64 bit applications. Kevin shows how easy it is to work with transfer modes with some great free applications that are included in your MC6 and Symphony 6 purchases.
