Final Cut Pro X: Save and apply color correction presets

Save and apply color correction presets

With Final Cut Pro, you can save a clip’s color correction settings as a preset, making it easy to apply those settings to other clips in the same project or a different project.

Final Cut Pro includes several presets you can use in addition to any that you create.

Note:   Color correction presets save the current Color, Saturation, and Exposure settings only. They do not save the mask settings, including whether you have Inside Mask or Outside Mask selected.
