Color Correction Help

Would any of you color gurus be able to improve a yellowish file?

I’ve got Vegas 13, BCC 9, UltimateS Pro 4 and Vegasaur. If anyone can offer specific settings within any of those plugins to improve it, I would be grateful.

I’ve uploaded two ten second clips, one of them yellowish, the second is OK. Would be nice if clip 1 could look more like clip 2.

Thanks in advance for your email.

(Tried to link to screenshots, but could not make it work)

The files are at:

Your clips are similar, so, try Vegas's Color Match plugin, located in Event FX. I've used it, with good results. It came out in VP12.
There are quite a few YouTube tutorials on using it, and it's very easy & quick too.

WHITE BALANCE with that white border in the background picture?

*Ok Sony WB was too blue, but the free AAV COLORLAB got it looking really close

Not sure how you found AAV Colorlab, but it worked great. I used a combination of that and Vegas Color Match, got it almost perfect, quick and easy, no fiddling with color controls.

Also tried BCC Color Match, I'm sure it would work, but you have to know what you're doing...

Nice tutorial Robert.

Found AAV from this forum. :) I always try both Sony WB and AAV COLOR LAB WB, and 99 out of a 100, AAV is better. BUT, the Sony one is adjustable, so there is that.

Just for yuks.

Sony Color Match, AAV Color Lab on both clips, Sony Color Corrector, Sony Brightness and Contrast

Excellent JD, excellent.

Oh! That's good!

What are the chances that, without taking too much of your time, you could provide a step 1, step 2, step 3... set this value to this, set that value to that... kind of explanation?

I made it look better, but not that much better...

If not this morning, I'll have you something this afternoon.

Thanks to both of you for the compliment. Usually, I feel like a red-headed stepchild when it comes to color.

I have appointments this morning, but here is the Vegas Pro 13 project that I used. Perhaps, you can save the settings as presets and apply them to your project.

Later, I may be able to describe my effort in more detail.

Thanks John.

It's a paid plugin, but Graide Color Match (forum topic) could also give you a quick one-step approximation:
