When it comes to high end usage, is it wise to do color corrections in AE or is it better in Color or FCP and if so why?

Different people contend that one program is "better" than the other for a variety of reasons, but my opinion is that color grading can be done equally well in any program with the right tools in the hands of the right user.

Color is made specifically for grading and is integrated well with FCP. However, if grading isn't all that's needed, AE can eliminate the need for an extra round-trip. AE has good built-in tools (Color Finesse) and you can add more if you do a lot of grading or prefer specific tools. Personally, I only do quick & dirty grading in FCP.

There are pros and cons to each approach so it's really a matter of your particular workflow, tool set, preferences and needs.

I'm a strong believer in trying things for one's self. Try color correcting or color grading in After Effects, and see how it works out for you.

If you have specific questions or run into problems, let us know.
