Final Cut 6 White Balance adjust

Is there a way to change the white balance of a clip in Final Cut? I know I can go to color correction and do it that way but I was wondering if there is a White Balance adjustment?

Not really- the best way to go is use CC. But it's designed around that sort of workflow. Here's a podcast that shows how to do it:

Thanks Noah that is what I am doing with CC. I guess there is no way to change the clip to say 3500K from 5600K with out CC in the three way CC.

If there was it would be a blunt instrument- I don't think I've ever filmed in an environment where the light was all one color temperature, or matched the camera's presets perfectly.

It's easy enough to map white & gray in the 3-way CC using the eyedropper tool.

I agree Benjamin and it is easy to correct with CC. Just always looking for all the options.
