    For you Canon DSLR owners who have installed Technicolor's CineStyle Picture Style and who have Final Cut Pro X, what color correction settings would you recommend (at least to start with) to bring out the truest reproduction of color from within Final Cut Pro X when one has used CineStyle to record video. I'm a real novice with color correction, so any help would be appreciated.

    I found that the colour controls aren't that great but first I would remove a colour cast if there is one and then under exposure move the shadows down, leave the middle one and raise the highlights.

    This adds more contrast to the look essentially bringing it back to how it would look in real life.

    Hope that helps!

    EDIT: just opened up FCPX to have a little play around and if you want a one click solution similar to applying the LUT in Color then toggling the balance button seems to do a pretty good job of getting the image looking more real!
