Two new tutorials from the Ripple barn, secondary colour correction in Final Cut Pro X and how to build animated titles in DaVinci Resolve.

In this week's new episode of MacBreak Studio, Steve Martin shows Mark Spencer how to perform secondary colour correction in Final Cut Pro X using masks. A good example of how to perform advanced colour correction without plugins or having to roundtrip to another application.

We would do things slightly differently. Instead of dragging the new Colour Correction effect over to a clip, we would simply hit CMD 6 on the keyboard. That automatically applies an instance of the effect and opens it up in the browser. It doesn't stick if you don't change the default flat correction.

We are also a big fan of the Draw Mask and would have used that to make an irregular shaped mask rather than have to combine masks. Maybe that is the subject of their next episode!

Want to know more about the new features in FCPX 10.2 now? Make sure you visit the Ripple Training website for more tutorials, there's still a discount on Final Cut Pro X 10.2 In Depth.

 

 

No Motion tutorial this week, but Alexis Van Hurkman is back to show us how to make animated titles in DaVinci Resolve. It is worth a watch just to see how similar the Resolve interface is getting to FCPX!
