Color correction - how to do it easiest way?

5 Replies, 4721 Views


I have one, awfully red tinted source which is only HD existing source of the movie. Now, I have few DVDs and TV captures I could use for color matching, but I could only use these as reference (as the HD source is more 'open' than DVDs in regards to aspect ratio, maybe it's even Open Matte), because I could not just merge chroma over these. In my opinion, one of TV captures has best colors, but it also has the TV logo.

I am using AviSynth for most of the work on source file, but I want to just make one script that would do all the work I want over the movie. So what is the best way to make color correction on that?
I am by no means an expert on this topic, however I'm pretty sure that if you are looking for help from someone here, a sample image of the "red tinted" HD source and the "proper color" source would greatly helpWink
