    Hey guys I need your help again.
    I have some footage of a friend shaving her head for cancer.
    Two cameras were used to get the footage.
    One was HD and the other was miniDV.
    My friend was wearing an orange smock when losing the hair and because of the different formats, the oranges are different.
    Is there anything simple you would suggest in order to get them relatively the same colour?

    Many thanks in advance!
    =)

    Seems the way to go, however the OP has no FCP but FCE which has no three way color corrector. Only a two way thing which is a bit weird to use. Anyway this is how you can do the trick.

    Thanks so much for your help guys.
    Much appreciated.
    I gave the colour correction a go but couldn't get it exactly the way I wanted it. Then decided it was slightly quirky.

    If you have time, check out the final product here. http://vimeo.com/21958811

    See if you can spot where I was talking about!

    Many thanks.

    I can definitely tell the difference between the two cameras, and I'm no video editor. It doesn't take away from the spirit of the video, though!
