It’s no secret, Final Cut Pro’s color correction tools pale in comparison to the Avid. But Apple’s recent purchase of Silicon Color technology is certainly to have an impact on future color correcting capabilities in Final Cut Pro. And even if the capabilities are slated for the rumored high-end version, I hope we’ll get some trickle down capabilities. It’s interesting that the FinalTouch color correction demo was one of the more interesting things I saw earlier this year at NAB, and I made the semi-serious joke at the time, sure wish Apple would acquire Silicon Color just like Shake and Logic and integrate the technology into the Pro Apps…

Silicon Color is great, but I think colorista is a huge step above the three way CC.
