How to Build the World's Most Popular Colour Grade for Final Cut Pro X

In this tutorial, we show you how to build the world's most popular colour grade inside Final Cut Pro X.

Once you've seen this grade on TV, you will spot it everywhere, especially on reality and talent shows. By using the colour correction tools built-in to Final Cut Pro X, we will show you how to get the grade quickly and understand how to legalise levels. And what the hell is 109% white and hypergamma anyway?

You can find our XEffects Toolkit Plugins for FCPX here. Free upgrade to version 2 coming very soon!

I guess old habits die hard. I think more and more people are watching video on their phone these days – maybe we should grade for that! Also I think the internet has a bigger problem with differing audio levels more than brightness and colours.

Peter, great work as usual!

There might be another good reason to stay broadcast safe even if intended for web delivery. More and more people are viewing web streams on their TV sets. If they’ve calibrated them for broadcast, then the best picture will come from a broadcast safe image I’d think. Leaving the intended color alone more or less? Plus, aren’t consumer TV sets built to show their best images with broadcast legal images?; True, you can deliver a wider range of image to the internet no problem. But that assumes computer displays I’d think, right?
