The FCPX Colorist brings professional color grading tools to Final Cut Pro X users. Now, editors can adjust curves, hue, saturation and color levels like never before without ever having to open another color grading software. With intuitive pop-up windows and custom preset loaders, The FCPX Colorist can help Final Cut Pro X users create endless color grade looks.
Modular Color Grading Tools
Each FCPX Colorist Tool installs into Final Cut Pro X as a separate filter in the Final Cut Pro X Effects library. This modular set-up allows users to stack, combine and re-arrange multiple filters on their footage to achieve endless looks.
FCPX Colorist introduces curve color correcting to Final Cut Pro X. The Custom Curves Tool allows users to adjust the tone and color of their image along the Red, Blue and Green color channels. Curves can be used to color balance an image, create high-dynamic looks, control light clipping or adjust contrast.
Primary and Balance Colors
The Primary and Balance Color tools allows users to adjust the color of their image based on exposure. The Primary Tool controls the Lift, Gamma and Gain; while the Balance Tool adjusts the Shadows, Mid-tones and Highlights.
The Hue-Hue Tool allows Final Cut Pro X users to isolate a specific color range in their image and adjust the hue of it. From skin tones to eye colors, users can use this tool to correct and grade a specific range of the color spectrum in their image.
The Hue-Saturation tool allows Colorist users to increase or decrease the saturation for a specific color range. This tool can be used to create stylized looks like the Sin City effect, in which everything is black and white except for reds.
Create Custom Presets
Users never have to worry about re-creating the perfect look from scratch. Once a user has one of the Tools looking the way they want it, they can export the settings as a custom preset file, which can later be loaded on to other clips.
