We need color correction!
Posted: 14 Feb 2015 10:07 AM
Hey,

I have just recently started using WLMM, and I have to use it in addition to GoPro studio, in order to carry out simple color correction functions. I think it would be very useful if we could somehow make color correction, such as saturation, contrast, tint, etc. a manual process instead.
So, that being said, I know many have made XML effects to correct color, but that does not allow user manipulation, and I think that needs to get some work done on it.
Personally , I know only Java, and a little XML, so I'm gonna need some help here.

Yeah, unfortunately Movie Maker doesn't allow for any user interaction when applying an effect. So the best someone could do (and have done) is to have multiple effects to set the saturation slightly higher or lower, the contrast higher or lower, etc. But that's hardly powerful enough to do a good job of color correction.

You might look into Davinci Resolve Lite which is a free download. It's designed to do color grading.
