    Merge Colour Correction.

    I am about to online grade / correct / legalise 4 seperate documentaries for different broadcasters - but all the footage will be from the same project. There are 2 x 1 hour versions and 2 x 2 hour versions.................

    Rather than having to re-grade each doc, is there a clever way to merge the colour corrects / grades.

    I have played with the Merge Colour option in the past, but have had little sucess with its reliable implementation!

    Can anyone offer a step by step "Idiots Guide" as to how to tackle this in terms of the first grade - i.e Src Tape / Src Clip Name / Master Clip / Sub Clip / Src Segment / Prog Track / Prog Segment.

    In an ideal world I know that it would be wisest to grade one of the 2 hour shows first........ I am not sure yet which show has to deliver first!

    For the online, all of the high resolution (Sequence) footage will be loaded onto the "Online Suite" drives with handles and I will not have access to the original project media. This may have a bearing on how I should apply the colour effects to the first sequence????

    For the subsequent grades - do I just load the first sequence to the left hand player window, open colour and merge the grade?

     

    Thanks in advance for any thoughts or advice given!!!!!!!!

     

    Cheers,

     

    Jim
