Sometimes you’ll find that your video clips are a little off in terms of color—the white balance is a little out of true. In this episode, we talk about the method I use in DaVinci Resolve Lite 10 to correct white balance. If you know of a better or quicker way to do this, please let us know!
DaVinci Resolve Lite 10 is free to download. You will need a computer with a fair bit of processing power and memory. See the Black Magic Design site for details.
To learn how to custom white balance, check out our previous episode on getting perfect white balance when you shoot so you don’t have to color correct (as much): http://youtu.be/zya_8TBvctY
