    I have some footage I want to edit. There are two cameras, and one of them has an incredibly poor colour balance.

    Here is the same shot from both of them:

    The problem is the blue channel of the bad cam is so weak that there isn't really any data to work with. If I boost the blue channel, it seems to just apply blue to everything.

    I have both Final Cut Pro and Color available, but haven't done a great deal of colour correction before. Anyone have any pointers?

    Thanks,

    Amorya

    You'll have to use two filters:

    3 Way Color Corrector for Balancing the colors.

    Color Corrector to brighten the overall image.

    Here's some screen shots.
