Can anyone point me in the direction of an easy to follow colour correction video (For Sony Vegas 12 if poss)? Something that covers scopes etc, but isn't too technical and goes straight to the point without going round the houses.

Cheers in Advance :-)

Go to You Tube and search for Sony Vegas Pro Tutorials, they might be done in an older version of Vegas, but the tool has kept its features similar from version to version.

To be not too technical, skip theoritical details (books plenty to read). Since you are practical and probably mostly interested to make film, keep to following line of process:

1) check exposure (balance light / dark)

2) check saturation (do not overdrive)

3) check color (do only what need to be done)

Just stay within the lines, succes
