As a serious filmmaker, you need to ensure that the color and lighting in each frame of your movie looks consistent and achieves the mood you want to convey. If you're using Avid Xpress DV 3.5 to edit your footage, but you've yet to master the software's color correction features, you need Color Correction for Avid Xpress DV 3.5.

Based on the one-day course taught by Avid's own Authorized Education Centers, this official step-by-step guide shows you how to color correct video frames in Avid Xpress DV 3.5 by taking you through the three stages of color correction: restoring the original look of each shot, achieving shot-to-shot consistency, and creating a final look. In the process, you'll learn how to use video scopes—which graphically display color information about individual frames in a sequence—to achieve brightness and color levels that are within safe limits for broadcast, attain a good level of contrast, correct color casts, and match brightness and color in consecutive shots in a program. By the end of this short course, you'll be able to analyze an image for color correction problems using scopes, color correct segments in a program, adjust color for an entire program, and check that levels are within broadcast limits. A companion CD-ROM (Windows XP and Mac OS X compatible) includes the project and media files used in the book so you can get started using your new skills immediately.
