Tim: Maxim responded to my email: "If I recall correctly, matching shots /is/ covered in my colour correction course. It usually ends up being 'by eye' anyway but there's some coverage in that course to do with using presets to speed the process up." Here's the best link for the course https://partner.video2brain.com/maximjago/courses.htm#/?c=1307&t=1 If you try the course, I'm sure you'll learn a heck of a lot about color correction, including the 3-way, which I've never mastered. So, give it a shot and report back what you think. Jan

Pesi and Tim, thanks for your comments. Pesi - I would try the three-way color corrector to fix your problem, which gives you control over blacks, midtones and whites. If that doesn't work, I'm out of tricks. Tim, I'm not sure there's a fixed "way to do it" on multiple cameras; it's a problem I work through every multiple cam shoot. YOu might try this tutorial: blogs.adobe.com/kevinmonahan/2012/01/14/color-correction-in-premiere-pro-from-maxim-jago-and-video2brain/ Maxim is very good and V2B does a great job. I'm a bit concerned because the description in the link above talks about multiple angles, but if you check out the actual tutorials, there's nothing on multicam. I know Maxim; I'll ping him and see if it's well covered.

That is such an excellent tutorial by Jan - informative, useful and clearly communicated. Question - what you demonstrated referred to changing white/black points and color throughout the image. What about when you need to color correct only one area of the image - e.g. let's say the background is perfectly lit and colored but the subject's face alone is dark/light or has a color cast due to some aberrant lights? Thanks again for a great tutorial... Pesi www.mediastreams.ca

I'd really like to see a tutorial on matching the color from different cameras. Despite my efforts to keep white balances the same and f stops the same, I often find myself trying to match the look of one shot with another. Even when using DSLRs it seems difficult to match a 5DMk11 with a 60D if the two cameras are in different parts of the room
