Color correction is not always simple, and what I wanna show you is one way that I found (on the internet) works very good. If you have a monitor that isn’t calibrated then this method might save your day. All three movies shows the same thing, but with different scenes. I made them as a test.
Do this many times and soon you can do it on the fly and it’s a great way of at least check how your image could look like. And I know I should have sound and say something. I’ll try soon.
Hold down the shift key when setting numbered markers. You can only set 4. (one black, one white, two grey) Grey marker I set two because grey point is tricky and you might wanna test two spots.
