Super Handy FCPX Colour Correction

HyColour is a really neat colour grading effect for FCPX that brings white balance, exposure, green cast removal, saturation, colour bias, sharpening and a broadcast safe filter, together in one place. Super handy, super cool.


Whilst FCPX is cool, the colour correction interface can seem clumsy and unfamiliar to new users. With HyColour you have access to all the core colour correction tools in one place.

And if you’re a Lightroom or Aperture user, you’ll feel right at home.
