From the Back Cover
This comprehensive guide starts out with primary correction in Final Cut Pro 7 and moves on to the fine points of secondary grading and color effects in Color 1.5. Revised with remarkable clips from TNT’s hit show Leverage as well as HD footage shot around the world, the book takes you step by step through Color’s new features, including 4K and RED workflows and improved round-trip integration with Final Cut Pro. Topics include color balancing, scene matching, using keys and vignettes to isolate and grade regions, applying advanced color effects, adjusting the composition and framing of a shot, tracking and keyframing, grade management, and advanced workflows. A special chapter on creating specific “looks” offers recipes for some of the most
useful grades in a colorist’s toolbox.

Color was a deep and complex program, a true color grading application. It wasn't the most user friendly program, but its power made it well worth the time to learn. But no more.
Apple killed Color and why bother taking all that time to learn something that is EOL? Even the color correction tips for FCP 7 are worthless, because FCPX dumped the triple color wheels for the clunky color board.
Don't get me wrong. It's a great book and aided me a lot in my adventures in color correction. But sadly, Apple has gone a different direction with the release of FCPX (not necessarily better IMHO). You would be smarter to put the money you might spend on this book into the bank and save up to buy DaVinci Resolve --and it ain't cheap. I mourn the loss of Color.
