Balance a clip’s colors
Clips in Final Cut Pro have a Balance setting that turns automatic color balance correction on and off, whether the clip is in the Browser or the Timeline. The frame used as the reference frame is either a frame chosen during color balance analysis, the frame the playhead is on in the Timeline, or the middle frame. For more information, see Color balance overview.
Turn a clip’s color balance correction on and off
Select one or more clips in the Timeline or the Browser.
Do one of the following:
Choose Modify > Balance Color (or press Option-Command-B).
Choose Balance Color from the Enhancements pop-up menu in the toolbar.
After you have applied a color balance correction (using one of the methods above), select or deselect the Balance Color checkbox in the Effects section of the Video inspector.
Note: To ensure the highest-quality results, the Balance Color and Match Color effects appear at the top of the Effects list in the Video inspector by default.
