Graeme Nattress is a legend in the editing world, you've probably come across his excellent film look plugins. Today he's launched Chromagic, a colour correction plugin for Final Cut Pro that you can control with an iPad.
Everybody wants those three trackballs when colour correcting, just like those big grading systems. Now you can colour correct your footage in Final Cut Pro with virtual trackballs running on your iPad with this new $25 plugin. That has to be serious value for money!
"Chromagic FXPlug is a color correction plugin for Final Cut Pro 7 and works with the Chromagic Ipad App to turn your Ipad into an "eyes-free" color correction console.
You must have the Chromagic FXPlug installed on your Mac, along with Apple's Final Cut Pro 7 (or Final Cut Studio 2) software, to make use of the Chromagic Ipad App.
The Chromagic Ipad App allows you to make primary and secondary color corrections, including drawing and modifying masks, on your video clips in Final Cut Pro, by using gestures on your Ipad. You can keep your eyes on your video footage and watch the color corrections in real time, while your fingers swipe, pinch and tweak."
There is some deep functionality in this plugin, an example being able to draw a mask on top of an image on the iPad. The image processing will be top notch as Graeme's other job is writing code as part of the RED team.
We are going to enjoy experimenting with this plugin and priced at $25 you'll get your money back almost instantly on a complex colour correcting job that needs mattes.

Graeme will try to support FCPX after it has been released because Chromagic has been written in FXPlug. As lot of developers for FCP have found out, there is little or no information to make future plans with.
