I have been fooling around in Color for my short film and have a quick questions about proper white balance. I know there isn't an easy click like in FCP 3-way CC but is there really not a hard rule on what your whites should be? Now I just eye-ball the whites and adjust using the color wheels. Plus I balance my flesh tones and the overall color appears white and balanced at least close.

Am I going about the process the correct way? I have been happy with the look of the picture with this method but since I have no formal training I feel I may be hacking my way through color correction.

Thanks,

Topler

You have to balance the shot first in the Primary In Room. Color has an AutoBalance feature that I show in one of the Tutorials here in the Cow. It errs to the blue, but gives you an idea of what to do.

In my DVD I show you how to balance a shot in the Primary In Room. If you don't balance a shot correctly to begin with, you won't get the absolute best looks you can achieve with Color. Once a shot is balanced, the sky is the limit as to what you can do.

Hi Topler,
The problem of making a 1-click Withe Balance is that you not always have a real white in your picture to click in.
