Manual color correction overview
Final Cut Pro includes powerful manual color correction tools that you can use to accomplish a wide variety of color correction or enhancement effects:
Choose a specific color in the image to correct: For example, choose a brightly colored object, such as a shirt or car, and use the color correction settings to mute or change the color. See Target a specific color using a color mask.
Choose an area of the image to correct: Draw one or more shape masks, and then choose whether the correction applies inside or outside the masks. You can even have the position of the masks change as the clip plays. See Target specific areas using shape masks and Animate an effect shape mask.
You can also apply multiple color corrections to a single clip and use shape masks in combination with a color mask. For example, you could use one correction to set the clip’s overall color look, a second to target and alter a specific color, and a third to target a different color or an area defined by a shape mask. See Add shape masks to a color mask.
You make manual color adjustments using the Color Board.
