Hi, i need some help about a color correction workflow.
This is the situation:
20 second TV spot, captured in HD uncompressed 10bits in Final Cut.
Edited in final cut in the same color space.
Postproduced in After Effects, for some effects (a window chromakey, a "post" digital LCD) and color corrected in After Effects too.
Then, rendered again uncompressed and took it to Final to add sound and mastering for broadcast. And, surprise... The color is not the same I see in After Effects...
So as I was mastering from Final Cut to a tape I decided to slight re-color correct in Final. In the vectorscope the signal was out of range in the white, i assume it was the bigger dinamic range of the uncompressed footage. It automatically set to the right level when I put the timeline in Prores.
Finally, as the spot was for broadcast SD PAL, I change the settings to a PAL timeline... and of course... the color changed again (rec709 to rec601 I assume...)
So, what is the right way to color correct for broadcast with these tools and donŽt get mad with all these color changes? Which is the best and safe way to be sure that what you see is what youŽll get?
