The nuts and bolts of correcting color in video production

VideoMaker Magazine is one of my favorite publications for choosing equipment and getting info on the latest tech out there. They also publish great how-to and work-flow articles for videographers as well. Morgan Paar has written an article on color correcting for video, called Color Correction 101. It’s very insightful and gives those who have been so focused on learning elements of video editing, the know-how to start thoroughly editing color in their projects, and take them to the next level.

By the way, did you know that in Adobe Photoshop CS3, there are color correction tools for video? So you designers who have been looking for an excuse to start working with video in your motion or web projects, using Photoshop as an editor is a great opportunity to take advantage of familiar color correcting, editing and filtering tools you’re already familiar with, and apply them to video. The new version has it’s own rendering engine for completed work (I’m sure Adobe is working on integration so you don’t have to render the video to use it in other software), and video clips are added to layers, where you can take advantage of Photoshop’s traditional filters, and apply them to video the same way you would them to still images.
