I have 2 video cameras that are different models that I need to match the colors. I have a color chart like this image colorchart.jpg

I would like to know the easiest way to match the colors using After Effects. Is there some kind of "automatic" way by selecting the colors on the chart and typing in the values of the 1st camera to match the 2nd camera?

Wayne -

Here's a whole slew of tutorials on color matching in AE and Premiere:

Color Finesse would be my first choice. It would support a process similar to what you're describing. You can also do it by eye, using the Levels filter, and the various color correction filters. Here's a series of Color Finesse tutorials which are quite good:

There are some color matching entries in this list of color correction and grading resources, including some here on the COW:
