Color Correction Workflows

Taking maximum advantage of Color requires careful workflow management. This chapter outlines where Color fits into your post-production workflow.

Color has been designed to work hand in hand with editing applications like Final Cut Pro via XML and QuickTime media support, or with other editorial environments via EDL and image sequence support. While video and film input and editing are taken care of elsewhere, Color gives you a dedicated environment in which to focus on color correction and related effects.

This chapter gives you a quick overview of how to guide your project through a workflow that includes using Color for color correction. Information is provided about both standard and high definition broadcast video workflows, as well as 2K digital intermediate workflows.
