Cliptoolz Color

Recommended Posts

Hello, I've been color correcting/grading with cliptoolz color for awhile now, but I've run into a few issues:

 

First off I don't fully understand waveforms, histograms and scopes in general. I know how to read them in a basic sense, but that's not really working in the results I'm trying to get.

 

Second, I'm shooting an a Sony a6000 in AVCHD, and I don't know how to correct/grade with AVCHD without having digital artifacts after de-noising.

 

Lastly, The computer I'm editing on is a dell laptop with Win 8 with a resolution of 1600 x 900 (not ideal I know, but it's the best I have to work with for the time being) so everything is SUPER de-saturated until I plug it in to a 1080p HD television which then the colors turn out alright. But it has me concerned that when I finally render it it will not look how I intended it to.

 

No I cannot upgrade software, cash is tight.

 

Any advice on the matter?

When grading you need a correctly set up monitor, it sounds like your laptop may not be.

 

There are a number of on line videos about doing colour correction, it would be worth while googling them and finding out if the processes used make sense. You should do some reading up on waveforms here's a couple of links:
