I'm editing footage from a Canon 5D Mkii and a Panasonic HMC-150 in Vegas Pro 10. I was shocked at how different the footage from each camera looked. I want to have some continuity and need to get them looking as close as I can to each other.

The Panny footage had some white balance issue that is easy enough to fix, BUT, still not getting close to the color on the 5D Mkii. Should I just fiddle around until it's close or is their a better way?

i can't think of any other way to combine both footages. how? you just need to colorgrade them as long as you are happy. you can use split screen to see them both at a time, this makes it easier. there is also a bcc filter "color match". i ve never needed it so can't tell how useful it is. good luck. or you just can go for black and white, so you have only black and white levels to set, but this is probebly a useless tip for you, sorry.

Many thanks Mike for your nice comment!

If I can add a few words, on the FBmn Software site, there is a link to a use case showing how a user matched two videos with the White Balance plug-in.

However, in most cases, white-balancing the events from different cameras is not enough: even though the whites become real whites, it does not mean that reds will all be the same reds between cams.

That is the reason why several users have asked me to develop another plug-in devoted to color matching. Which I decided to do. It was in beta-test until yesterday, and I have got very good feedbacks in terms of quality of results, user-friendliness and stability. The final release should be available pretty soon, I will post another message when ready - there will be a free eval version valid for 7 days.

Hope this helps,
Frédéric
