RGB Balance equivalent in FCPX
on Feb 21, 2014 at 10:19:43 am

Something (one of many) things I miss from FCP7 in X is the RGB Balance filter.

It used to be a great little tool, because it allowed you to fairly precisely alter the R, G and B colour ranges in the high/mid/lows of an image with minimum amounts of fuss.

So far I haven't found the equivalent in FCPX. The Colour Board is OK for making your initial adjustments and even setting the overall colour tone of the image, but sometimes I think it would be useful to have this simple little filter back just to make little adjustments that make a big difference to the final image.

Does anyone have any recommendations for plug-ins that can be purchased that replicate this tool I'm familiar with from FCP7, or maybe suggest alternatives built in to FCPX?


Cheers

Try this really great free plug-in from Rob Mackintosh:

Or for lots more control check out his excellent commercial plug-in Color Precision:

If you have Motion 5, open it up and choose Final Cut Effect from the template browser.

Go to library/filters and find Color Balance (I think that's the one). Apply it to Effect Source in the timeline.

Once you save it, it will be available as a filter in FCPX.
