iMovie Color Correction Tutorial

So, what the heck is color correction?  Well…basically it’s messing with the colors of the video that came out of your camera to get the video footage to look the way you want.  Sometimes it works well and…..sometimes it doesn’t.  There are many factors involved but it’s all about the quality of video footage you get from the camera, since iMovie’s color correction is a bit limited.  There is enough control to compensate for a bit of over or under exposed video, enough control to make it “warmer” or “colder”, and pull out highlights, etc.

In this tutorial I took some video footage from my Panasonic G7 that was using the stock kit lens and a polarized lens filter.  Then I tweaked the color until I got it to look the way I wanted it to look.

Thanks for watching!!
