consistant white background colour
on Sep 29, 2010 at 8:59:57 am

I have lots of shots of coloured ink in water on a white background.
I've cut them together but the whites are all slightly different.
I have tried to change them with the colour corrector and colour corrector 3-way but they are still not consistent.

Is there another way (preferably) in FCP or apple colour to make sure all the white backgrounds are the same white value?

Thank you

Sounds like an exposure or color balance problem when it was shot. Like the camera as on auto. You can probably white balance it in FCP with the three way color corrector. Use the eyedropper on the lower left of the white color hub to suck up what's supposed to be white. You'll probably have to tweak it after that.

All the best,

Tom

Thank you, I carried on trying with the three way corrector, which was ok and have now bought it into AE and used the levels filter and now looks fine.

Thank you for your reply.

Rachel
