simple colour matching & exposue advice required please

advise please..
Hi Guys,

I have shot a theatre show with 2 cameras and i will be doing a simple Multicam edit with FCP 7.. the show is about 90 mins in length . The 2 cameras do vary in saturation and exposure as one was always shooting tight the other was wide , Though both were shot on same makes of cameras. I don't know whats the best way to go about doing a basic grade and match the footage. Should I do this before I start the edit or after the edit , does it complicate the process if i am going down the multicip edit in repect of the grading?

Also i am not sure what the best way to go about the grading . I have never attempted colour grading/matching so please don't shoot me down as i require advice in simple language please- still on a learning curve!!. As I mentioned i will be using FCP 7 to do the edit , i have also downloaded resolve but never used that . It really is a simple colour match and tweak the exposure between the 2 cameras to give it a more similar look . Currently the footage is 422 pro res. I am posting this as i am on a bit of a tight deadline so don’t want to go down the stress of trial error and keep at it route.. incase that is one of the replies fired back at me.... :-)


Any advise much appreciated and thanks again people for reading my post!

GH
