Is it possible to color correct NTSC video to look like PAL video? They have different colors, but I prefer PAL. I am from the US, so unfortunately I cannot use PAL. If anyone can help me I would be appreciated. NTSC (my video) PAL

can you colour grade the entire clip of your whole film at the same time?

Jay Hazelwood says:

Good tutorial. Short and straight to the point which is great. But why not put the boat as the thumbnail for the video. I clicked looking for that cinematic look, but still left learning something so overall no complaints.

Dev Suthar says:

Awesome videos KingTuts! I was having an issue where the “Color Correction” was not under “Color”. What I had to do was click on “Effects” on the bottom right bar which is located next to the camera icon. Then you have to select “color” and click “Color”, and then double click on “Color Correction”.

ScottieMedia says:

to my eye the graded image just look like a wrong WB was selected, but I guess that’s not the point of the tutorial

Actually, the original video quite OK, unless you shot it in flat profile

TheDrolls PH says:

How to do you paste the same color correction on other videos?

Abrasive B Productions says:

How much do you charge to color grade short films or do you offer those services?

_pudu says:

not really a good tutorial, you just said bring this up, bring that down, etc but not given the reason for choosing your colour for color correction.

LiaLeigh says:

Thanks So Much! This was short and straight to the point!

bennn82 says:

Mate how do you get the split screen up so you can see before and after correction in same shot????

Adams Avenue says:

You should do a video on how to single out 1 color in a video and the rest black and white or more just dark.

Nathan B says:

For a short five minutes color graded clip in the video you think 4gb of memory is enough or I should go with 8gb?
