Re: Colour Correct FAST - HELP!

Grazie, absolutely with you 100% re ColorFast. It is, for me at any rate, the most intuitive colour correction plugin I have ever used. More to the point, I actually do colour correction now! In the past I have loosely corrected poor white balance or mismatched footage by doing a bit of touching up with Color Fixer Pro, then slapping a tweaked MB Look or NB Film Look on to give a rough cohesion to the whole thing. It never looked great, just passable.

NewBlue asked me to demo ColorFast at NAB (giving a customer perspective rather than a sales pitch) and I was surprised to discover that I was very much not alone in this. In fact, the great majority of people I spoke to said they did pretty much the same thing, and very few gave 'real' cc and grading the attention it should have. When I showed them ColorFast it was (as it had been for me) like a lightbulb popping on. It is so easily understandable (much more so than colour wheels, for simpletons like me) and while it might not be as powerful or fine-tuneable as, say, DaVinci or Color Finesse, it makes colour correction immediately accessible. As you've demonstrated, Grazie, it also gives great results. Like I said, I actually do 'proper' colour correction now - and I enjoy it.

As always, the disclaimer - NewBlue pays me to write tutorials for them, and flew me out to Vegas for NAB this year, so I am ridiculously biased :-)
