Synthetic Aperture Color Finesse 3

Synthetic Aperture Color Finesse 3 is available as a plug-in for your favorite program like Premiere Pro, After Effects, Motion or Final Cut Pro or as an Independent Standalone Application. However, unlike the standalone program, the plug-in version is limited by host application restrictions. The Standalone program offers improved project management, workflow and video handling. Color Finesse, 3 being cross-platform, means that it works on multiple operating systems on anything from multi-processor work stations to laptops, all without needing specified video cards or more than one monitor. Your settings will even carry on through application to plugin and back. Synthetic Aperture’s Color Finesse 3 allows you to have control over the look, color, and mood of your photos and images easy, fast, and on point. Using the best tool for the job always leads to the best results.

The Color Finesse 3 Plugin is functional with most major editing programs such as Premiere Pro, After Effects, Final Cute Pro and a few other hosts. This plugin provides you with access to color correction tools right from within the hosting application in addition to the Color Finesse interface. This is a handy feature when using video editing software with limited color correction built-in. The Color Finesse 3 stand-alone application is designed to do one thing and one thing only and that’s to provide its users with the best possible color correction tool possible. From the standalone application you can import projects from Final Cut Pro or create your own. Color Finesse 3 also handles QuickTime movies and image sequences and supports image formats from bitmap to jpeg.
