Apply the Film Look effect in Final Cut Pro

In this Software video tutorial you will learn how to apply the Film Look effect in Final Cut Pro. This is an advanced technique. This essentially takes a video and makes it look like a film. Select the video clip that you want to work with. Then select the 'color corrector 3 way' filter. This is under the 'Effects' tab. The key to any color correction is to crush the blacks. So, decrease the blacks with the slider. Then increase the whites as films have higher white level. Depending on the scene in the video, increase other colors with the 'mids' slider. Increase the saturation slightly to give it a crisp edge. You now have a video that looks like a film.
