HERE IS WAHT I SAY IN THIS VIDEO:

TODAY I WILL SHARE WITH YOU HOW I COLOR CORRECT MY MAVIC FOOTAGE IN POST, USING FINAL CUT PRO
SO IF YOU SAW MY MAVIC CAMERA SETTINGS VIDEO AND YOU ARE USING A FLAT COLOR PROFILE ON YOUR MAVIC, YOU REALIZE THAT THE IMAGES STRAIGHT OUT OF THE MAVIC ARE NOT VERY USEABLE, THERE IS VERY LITTLE CONTRAST AND THE COLORS ARE PRETTY FADED…..THEY CLEARLY NEED A LITTLE HELP!
LET’S SELECT THE FIRST CLIP AND OPEN THE COLOR BOARD PANEL – THERE ARE A FEW WAYS TO DO THIS, THE FASTEST FOR SURE IS TO USE THE SHORTCUT “COMMAND 6” –
AS YOU CAN SEE, IN THIS PANEL WE CAN WORK ON COLOR- SATURATION AND EXPOSURE, MY RECOMMENDATION IS TO START FROM THE EXPOSURE, AS ONLY AFTER HAVING A BALANCED EXPOSURE YOU WILL BE ABLE TO UNDERSTAND WHICH OTHER ADJUSTMENT YOUR CLIP MIGHT NEED
SO LET’S WORK ON THE EXPOSURE, AND TO VISUALIZE AND FIX OUR EXPOSURE LET’S OPEN THE VIDEO SCOPE PANEL, ALSO IN THIS CASE THERE ARE MULTIPLE WAYS TO DO IT, I USE THE SHORTCUT COMMAND 7,
ON THE TOP RIGHT CORNER OF THE VIDEO SCOPE PANEL, WE CAN SELECT DIFFERENT VIEWS AND CHANNELS, AND FOR THE EXPOSURE ADJUSTMENT LET’S SELECT WAVEFORM AND LUMA
HERE WE HAVE A VISUALIZATION OF OUR EXPOSURE BETWEEN THE VALUE OF 0 AND 100, WHERE 0 REPRESENTS THE MAX SHADOWS AND 100 IS THE MAX HIGHLIGHT, ANYTHING BELOW 0 WILL BE UNDEREXPOSED AND ANYTHING ABOVE 100 WILL BE OVEREXPOSED.
NORMALLY WHEN USING A FLAT PROFILE IN OUR MAVIC CAMERA, THE VISUALIZATION OF OUR EXPOSURE VALUES IS ALL IN THE MIDDLE, AND BECAUSE OUR IMAGE AS VERY LITTLE CONTRAST THERE WON’T BE ANY CLIPPING ON THE SHADOWS OR HIGHLIGHTS – OUR GOAL HERE IS TO EXPAND THE EXPOSURE OF OUR CLIP, BRINGING DOWN THE SHADOWS (DRAGGING THE BLACK CIRCLE) TO BARELY TOUCH THE VALUE OF 0 AND BRINGING UP THE HIGHLIGHTS TO 100 (DRAGGING THE WHITE CIRCLE) – THE GREY CIRCLE INSTEAD ADJUSTS THE MID-TONES AND DEPENDING ON THE CLIP EXPOSURE, WE CAN LIGHTEN OR DARKEN BY MOVING THE MID-TONE UP AND DOWN.
AS YOU CAN SEE THE CLIP LOOKS ALREADY QUITE DIFFERENT, INCREASING THE CONTRAST ALSO THE COLORS ARE MORE BALANCED AND VIVID…LET’S HAVE A QUICK LOOK TO THE HOW THE CLIP LOOKED BEFORE THIS ADJUSTMENT….AND AFTER….
WE CAN NOW GO INTO THE COLORS ADJUSTMENT, IF WE WANT TO KEEP THIS ADJUSTMENT AS A SEPARATE ONE, WE CAN ADD AN ADJUSTMENT FROM THE TOP RIGHT CORNER, OTHERWISE WE CONTINUE ON THE SAME COLOR BOARD PANEL
IF WE SET THE WHITE BALANCE CORRECTLY ON OUR MAVIC, POSSIBLY WE DON’T REALLY NEED TO WORK MUCH ON THE COLORS, UNLESS WE ARE TRYING TO GIVE A SPECIFIC LOOK TO OUR FOOTAGE OR WE NEED TO MATCH THE MAVIC IMAGES WITH IMAGES COMING FROM ANOTHER CAMERA WITH A VERY DIFFERENT COLOR PROFILE
TO CHECK THAT OUR COLORS ARE BALANCED, LET’S CHANGE CHANNEL IN THE VIDEO SCOPE PANEL AND SELECT RGB PARADE, HERE OUR GOAL IS TO TRY TO HAVE EVEN RED-GREEN AND BLUE HIGHLIGHTS AND SHADOWS WAVEFORM SHAPES, SO IF FOR INSTANCE WE NEED TO BRING UP THE BLUE HIGHLIGHTS, WE WILL WORK WITH WHITE CIRLCE…AND SO FORTH…
LASTLY, LET’S GO TO THE SATURATION…AGAIN WE CAN DECIDE TO HAVE A SEPARATE ADJUSTMENT BY CLICKING ON ADD CORRECTION HERE….OR CONTINUE ON THE SAME COLOR BOARD PANAL.
HERE YOU CAN ADD SATURATION TO THE ENTIRE IMAGE TROUGH BY MOVING THIS LEVEL ON THE LEFT, OR APPLY SPECIFIC ADJUSTMENTS TO SHADOWS, MID-TONES AND HIGHLIGHTS, WHICH IS WHAT I USUALLY PREFER TO DO….
AND THIS IS IT!
LET’S HAVE A LOOK AT OUR FOOTAGE BEFORE THE ADJUSTMENT……AND AFTER…..
AS YOU CAN SEE, WITH VERY FEW CLICKS WE ARE ABLE TO COMPLETELY CHANGE THE LOOK OF OUR MAVIC FOOTAGE, TAKING ADVANTAGE OF A FLATTER PROFILE AND AN HIGHER DYNAMIC RANGE
I HOPE THIS WAS EASY TO FOLLOW AS I PROMISED AND THAT YOUR FOOTAGE WILL LOOK AWESOME WITH THESE QUICK ADJUSTMENTS.
