Color Correction Filters

Color Correction Filters

Color Correction filters can be used to improve picture quality, adjust your video to proper levels, match shots that should match but don't, and more. But a huge caveat should be mentioned here. Don't use your computer's display to correct color that will eventually be delivered to a TV set or video monitor. The gammas are much different between your computer's display (which can actually show you a lot more color variations than a video monitor can). Use an external video monitor (or even a TV set with monitor inputs) to evaluate your color and luminance levels.

Broadcast Safe is a quick filter to add to bring your luma and chroma levels to a broadcast-legal level. It clamps any luminance to 100 IRE and lowers any chroma (color) levels to a legal amount as measured by a Vectorscope. It's easy to apply and saves time setting these proper levels. Broadcast Safe does a very gentle clamp, not as harsh as what a broadcaster or cable operator will do to your pictures down the line. It can be configured to cut off at any level, but the default is pretty much in line.
