I use Vegas. Vegas has great color bars for HD or HDV projects. My Sony cameras all generate their own color bars.

But for color balancing, I always shoot a few seconds each of two cards, color bars and gray scale from each camera. Located where the subject will be in the lighting I will use, after I white balance each camera.

I meant, "How do I generate color bars in Vegas?" =)

Use the "media generator" for color bars.

You may need to manually wrangle your levels... the color bars aren't necessarily accurate.

Click on the Media Generators tab.
Scroll down to Test Patterns.
