In this video tutorial, Jerzy Drozda Jr (aka Maltaannon) demonstrates how to change the look and feel of your footage easily with his new, useful CustomEffect for color correction
.

Color correction made easy -- Finally!

Have you ever had to color correct a shot? I'll bet you have.

Even small corrections are often required to make the shoot look better. And what about cinematic looks? I'm sure everyone has tried to recreate the filmlook on your own footage at least once. But wait, there's more...

You can even color correct poorly balanced footage to restore original colors. Yep. CE ColorCorrector allows you do to all that in 5 easy steps or less.

CE ColorCorrector is a wrapper around Adobe Color Balance plugin. I'm not really sure if I got the math behind it right, but hey, it works for me. You can also use it along with Hue/Saturation, Curves and Levels for even more control over the look and feel of your footage. Happy color correcting.

Side note:

This CustomEffect was built using After Effects CS3, but it should also work with CS2 or even 6.5 but I'm not sure about that.
