Presets for yellow flowers

I am having a bit of a problem with presets. It seems that my "yellows" are great on things plastic, signs or cloths. However, when I video yellow flowers, they appear orange. Any ideas on what I am doing wrong? My settings are:

Black-normal
color matrix=1
color gain=5
color phase= -2
R gain=2
G gain=2
Blue gain= -1
sharpness=3
setup level= -5
master ped= -5

Maybe try dialing down the red gain a bit?

Jarrod, Thanks, I will try that this weekend. It is just interesting that the only yellow that looks orange is from plants and not other objects. Bob

This might seem dumb but is your white balance properly set?

Roger, thanks, don't know why I didn't think of that. Also, so many more choices than my old XL-1s, it eill really take time to fine tune this beast. Thanks again. Bob
