I saw a tutorial where the guy talking about color correction said that the luma value should never go over 100 (he used the Waveform monitor in FCP X)


I shot this video and applied some color correction. After this process, the luma value is way over 100%. I think it still looks ok, what do you think?


I also applied the broadcast safe plugin but it didn't do much at all..

It's easy to blame amateur equipment for the amateur look of a project when you're a beginner. Many of us play the hand we're dealt when it comes to producing video. We use the camera we can afford, and we make the best of the editing system we have. We're no strangers to using workarounds to perform even the most basic tasks. Some might say this builds character, and they're probably right.

Editing Tip: Prioritize Your Workflow

Editing Tip: Prioritize Your Workflow
Prioritizing your edit workflow is extremely important to ensure that the project you submit is one you're proud of. The real trick, is learning the difference between the quick touches that make big differences, and the time-consuming touches that casual viewers aren't even likely to notice.

I posted this a few weeks back in a bit of a meme group of hot chilli fans. There are a lot of people making these chili challenge and spicy food videos, and my son really got into it. He has become a favorite in that community, and has his own channel going now. I had a lot of comments on our videos and how to make them look sharp - so I made them a quick little tutorial on how I go about it in Vegas Pro - it would also apply to Vegas Movie Studio.

First of all, i'd like to show you the last one, a viral made for an italian shirt's brand.

Shots were made with a Canon XHA1s + SgBlade + Nikon 50mm 1:1,8f. This is the configuration i use to apply on all of my productions.
