Hue and Saturation

I remember some of my first editing projects back when I didn't know a thing about properly calibrating my video decks. In the first project I edited, every living creature seemed to be tinted purple. Little did I understand that hue adjustment could have fixed this problem and returned the video signal colors to normal.

If you have the luxury of having a vectorscope, you can adjust an image's hue (color phase) more accurately. The hue adjustment affects the color values for the entire scene globally, not just individual elements of that clip. If you look at your SMPTE color bar test pattern, as you adjust the hue, you should see the display on the vectorscope rotating, depending on which direction you adjust the slider (see Figure 6.27).
