Toying around with FCPX’s new color match tool. It’s not quite there yet but quite promising. The before clip is on top, much more red because of the lights on stage at the time. Color matched to something shot at entirely different time, with out stage lights, automatically balances the color much better. Just need to tweak it some but it’s much more usable footage.
Just finished the first complete project in Final Cut Pro X. Mixed thoughts on it. Once I got used to the new editing layout and magnetic timeline, I really started to enjoy it. Time remapping (speed ramping) clips was really easy, but my hesitation is that it doesn’t seem to want to create proxy files and with everything in ProRes4222 my initial data files were only 1.5GB and after all the ProRes render files, its now eating up 16GB on my hard drive. Not a lot, but, not a little.
Great article that can be downloaded as an epub/ebook and lays out where to find the new features.
