Hey, I liked the comparison between FCP and Color when doing what FCP can already do. I'd like to see what Color can do that FCP can't. Looking to expand my abilities. Thanks for all your great work.

Wow, I am just looking into getting into Color and this made me really excited to dive in. I am very familiar with the 3 way CC in FCP but have often wondered how it compares to Color. The side by side and the ease of getting the Color one has pretty much made my mind up on how to grade my next big video project. Thank you!

Hi Michael,

Color is actually very easy to use once you understand how the interface works. This is exactly what my DVD is all about. 2 hours dedicating to waking you through the interface.
