Correcting for ISO change in FCP 7?

I accidentally hit the ISO wheel on my DSLR while I was filming and now half my footage is too dark. I can get it lighter, but it still doesn't match the look of the first half. Is there a way to correct for the exact ISO loss?

Nothing you do will make this float to the top...It sinks like everything else.

Sorry, but ISO changes are very complex to deal with. They take a lot of trial and error, tweaking and finessing. Not something that can be expressed in a web post. FCX touts the ability to match shots with the click of a button, but I know it isn't perfect. With FCP it'll be tougher, and Color will do a better job, but still need to tweak a lot of settings to get things right.

You might need to hire a professional colorist for this.

Blackmagic's DaVinci Resolve Lite is free and very powerful. And there are a lot of good tutorials floating around. The Lite download is at the bottom of the linked page.
