The Color Match effect went out the door with CS5.
You might want to look at this to get a certain colors adjusted.
That was useful, but not exactly what I was looking for.
Time for a feature request for the return of the Match Color effect?
I started off using the reference monitor and vectorscope and waveform, but then wanted to be able to have two vectorscopes open at the same time for the "correct" clip and the one I was trying to match it to. I wanted to use one vectorscope as "reference" and use the fast colour corrector to adjust the other clip by looking at its vectorscope. But it doesn't seem that it's possible. Is it?
Is this still not possible in cs6?
Open up your 'correct' clip in the Source Monitor and set the Output to whatever you like (e.g. to Vectorscope). Switch your workspace to Color Correction layout, and you'll get the Source Monitor, the Program Monitor and the Reference Monitor at hand.
Thanks for your reply Fuzzy, but that still doesn't give you the ability to see two scopes side by side, which is what Joe Riggs and I want.
Not sure I follow you...
How many monitors you eventually want to get opened and with which Output?
Have you read the very first post in this thread? I thought I'd made it pretty obvious what I wanted.
Normally I never read first posts and type something odd in the rush - that's my style.
However, if you need 3 (or even 4) monitors opened: one for the 'correct' clip Vectorscope, one for Vectorscope of the clip you're currently grading and one for the Composite Video of this clip, - I don't see anything that would prevent you from getting that.
Sorry for bothering you.
FWIW: I have never seen dual vectorscopes in any CC Suite I have ever been in and never seen a colorist actually grade off the vectorscope. (only seen them used for set up , monitoring and QC checking)
I cant imagine how it would significantly help in your situation because you still have to get your hands on the correct "controls" to make the adjustments and the units in a vectorscope dont relate much to the controls.
If you can do that..you may as well CC "visually" to the image
Secondaries are the key to what you need.
Just going back to this. The latest version of FCPX now give exactly what I want from Premiere: dual vectorscopes for doing exactly this kind of clip matching. Makes sense to me. And obviously make sense to the FCPX development team. FR time.
