NewBlue Colorfast makes it very easy to correct, control and experiment with color in any of the leading NLE platforms. The white balance with eyedropper is super handy as a starting point. You can precisely control how much correction is applied and very quickly dial in your video. Very handy under tight deadlines.
Additional controls include brightness, film gamma, saturation and the ability to mask portions of the image and isolate regions for specific adjustments such as skin tone while still tweaking the rest of the image.
We tested NewBlue Colorfast with both Vegas Pro 11/12 and Adobe Premiere CS6. It shows up like any other plug-in and is very intuitive and easy to use. You can make simple adjustments just to make your video pop a bit more or really go crazy and experiment.
Colorfast played nice with both of our test NLEs and we didn't experience any strange behavior or crashes as a result of using the plug-in, which is not always the case with some of these plugs. Most importantly we were very pleased with the end results.
NewBlue has created a very handy little plug-in with ColorFast that's effortless to use. It's certainly worth a trial for anyone considering adding a simple yet powerful color correction tool to their NLE arsenal.
