    I am editing this video in FCE.
    Also i know how to do color correcting in FCE but is there any other way i can make the colors look as HD as possible?

    Thanks.

    Page 858 of the FCE manual has some instructions about this effect, called "vignette". It comes from old photographs and early films.


    Also HD is short for High Definition and has almost nothing to do with the colours.

    You probably mean colours like in those movies that were produced by film companies I think.

    If you search these forums via MRoogle, you should find the answer as there are some threads about colour correction buried somewhere in here.
    MRoogle is quite a good tool to search these forums.

    What didn't help?

    The manual or the MRoogle tip, or both?

    The manual tip may have not the exact description of you wanna achieve, but it can be used as a start.

    The following screenshot was a simple test in FCP, but you should get better results in FCE with a little tweak.

    The white stripes are the only left visible material from the overlaying image, black has been cut out.


    So give it at least a try, it should work.
