Final Cut Pro X: Save and apply color correction presets

Save and apply color correction presets

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 the setting that determines whether the area inside or outside the mask is affected.
