Was wondering if anyone could give me any advice or point me in the right direction.
I have recently shot video footage for a music video. As I am new to this particular field the footage is very inconsistent regarding the lighting. We used 3 lights (not sure what make)and there is a big inconsistency ranging from very dark to light. The dark shots look realy nice and would like to keep this look if poss. I have edited the video in Final Cut Pro. Is after effects the best tool for colour grading out of these 2? Any tips or links to tutorials would be really helpful

If you have Final Cut Studio, I would suggest taking the sequence into Color and grade/correct there. If you've never used it, I would suggest reading or watching some tutorials first as the interface isn't that common. Good luck!

Thanks for the msg Craig. I have played around with the 3 way colour correction in FCP. Not sure if this is what you were suggesting but it seems to have done the trick! Pls let me know if you think there is a better way.

Thanks Scott
