Video Tuneup Plus: Scoping Out The Color!

  • Color Control And Three-Way Waveform Monitors: All in One.

 

Problem:

You have video from a dozen different sources that are all over the place, and need a speedy luma and/or chroma adjustment along with dependable waveform analysis. (While we know Media Composer has scopes in the color corrector, keeping the color corrector open just to monitor video levels isn't practical or efficient.) You need to speed check through your timeline and quickly make basic adjustments.

Solution:

Drop Video Tuneup Plus on your track and you have three visual scopes working non-stop with you throughout the edit, as well as solid basic image level control including Contrast, Saturation, Hue and Brightness.

Scopes include Vectorscope, Waveform and Histogram...displayed individually or all at once along with your video so you can see exactly the effect your changes are having.

 

Additionally, Video Tuneup Plus isn't the only NewBlueFX plugin offering waveform monitors.  ColorFast 2, (their supercharged color correction solution) also has them, as well as Region Scope, which allows you to spot check specified regions of the frame by bracketing any section of the frame you choose.
