Apple Color Correction 1.5

This two-day hands-on course is targeted to those who need to use the color correcting capabilities of Final Cut Studio.

Start with the basics of color balancing and correction, and move on to the fine points of secondary grading, including scene matching, using vignettes to isolate and track regions, creating advanced color effects and “looks,” skin tone adjustments, adjusting the composition and framing of a shot, and much more.

We can also configure custom training options upon request.
