I cannot work out from the documentation above how to use BCC Color Match. I have two clips, one on track 1 and the other on track 2. I would like the colors on track 2 to match those of the clip on track 1. The docs state “Match Color automates the process of removing or balancing the difference between the two clips by setting color or luma values…Ideally, you want to view both the Source and Target clips so that you can sample colors.”
How do I sample the colors from the clip on track 1 and match the colors in the clip on track 2 to that sample? The documentation fails to describe the process or sequence of steps I need on how to carry out this task.
Hi, here’s the way I’ve used it in Vegas 20, might be doing it wrong
It doesn’t matter where your clips are, (if one is below the other you will have to mute one so you can see the other to ‘Copy Snapshot to Clipboard’
2, Add BCC Color match to the clip you want to change (that’s the Target i think)
Place the timeline cursor so the preview screen shows the other clip
Use the button at the top of the preview window to ‘Copy Snapshot to Clipboard’
5, Place the timeline cursor back over the clip with BCC Color match on
Change the Split Screen View at the top of the preview window to ‘Clipboard’
You should then have both images that you can select the Target/Source colours.
These two pics don’t exactly colour match but i chose two quite different ones just to differentiate between the two for illustration purposes
