Singling out a color in Final Cut Pro 6

Achieving that Pleasantville look in FCP is easy By David Basulto

Remember that movie called Pleasantville with Toby McGuire? When they lived in the past it was a world stricken of color. Slowly the color began to come back to life. Did you know you could do this effect with a simple tool in Final Cut Pro? You can.

As I was working on a project with a friend, he asked me if we could single out one color to highlight it. I nodded and opened the footage up in Final Cut Pro 6. I then added the easy to use 3 Way Color Corrector.  With a few clicks he was able to get the look he wanted.

In the following video I take you through the process of achieving that fun look. Enjoy.
