An Overview of the Color Workflow

All controls in Color are divided into eight tabbed rooms, each of which corresponds to a different stage in a typical color correction workflow. When you move from room to room, the buttons, dials, and trackballs of your control surface (if you have one) remap to correspond to the controls in that room.

Each room gathers all the controls pertaining to that particular step of the color correction process onto a single screen. These rooms are organized from left to right in the order colorists will typically use them, so that after adjusting your project’s preferences in the Setup room, you can work your way across from the Primary controls, to the Secondary controls, Color FX, Primary Out, and finally Geometry as you adjust each shot in your project.
