I will make no bones about the fact that I think Larry Jordan is one of the best educators in the realm of editing and color correction. In this video he goes over the color correction capabilities built into FCPX. I post this in response to people who say you need to get fancy (read: expensive) plugins to do this. (I’ll set aside the amazing Davinci Resolve for now).
Larry doesn’t (seem) to go for flash – he just gives you the tools and knowledge to make solid, great looking, footage. And competent, compelling edits. Go to Larry’s site and get his amazing tutorials. I get no fee – I just love the content!
I’m going to jump to the most amazing demonstration (at the end) but I strongly suggest you watch the whole thing.
