In this article, we’ll discuss proper white balancing, recognizing color casts using scopes, and color correcting using various tools.
While the wrong white balance can be fixed if the footage was taken in a raw video format (by accessing the white balance value in the camera raw panel), most of us still film with cameras that record in a compressed format. Even if your camera records 8-bit log footage, the same balancing principles learned in this episode will rescue you.
Here is what we’ll cover:
- Recognizing color casts — using the RGB Parade to spot color biases
- Offset Wheel — adjusting the white balance globally
- Printer Lights — fine-tuning the RGB channels individually
- Temp & Tint — a convenient way to balance your image
- Auto Balance — arguably the easiest way to a quick white balance
- Raw footage white balance settings — balancing in camera raw
