effect/filter to fix auto white-balance in final cut studio
on Jul 18, 2011 at 11:07:45 pm

I shot a video with a new camera and used auto settings and now I have clips in which the white balance changes fairly dramatically.

Is there a filter that will correct this or what is the best way to go about doing this? something that will equalize the color if that's the right word..

I'm using Motion 4 and FCP 7 mostly. Haven't had much experience with, Color, but can learn if this is the best way to fix it.


Thanks!

If it's changing constantly DURING the shots, you're going to have to keyframe using the 3-way color corrector, with keyframes placed at the points in time when the color balance changes.

If it changes from shot to shot, apply 3-way to each shot.

Doing it automatically? Only in Dreamland.

that's what I thought.. but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask. For some projects I'll keyframe color 3 way frame by frame. Good idea

Thanks for your insight
