Final Cut Pro TV

Balance Color, White Balance & Match Color

Final Cut Pro includes several cool balance color features. These are not really color corrections but rather balance color such as manually white balancing. Balance color is not considered a color correction in Final Cut Pro as it doesn't show up as a color correction in the Inspector. You could say it's a mini-correction or starting point for us non-colorist video editors.


There are four ways to balance color in Final Cut Pro.


Manually white balance

Analyze a clip for balance color

Auto balance color

Match color


In this tutorial, I'm going to cover the balance color options in Final Cut Pro.
