I have a question about color correction. My friends and I have been making home movies together for a number of years now and with each movie are effects, transitions, camera angles and such are getting better and better but, one thing that we've always noticed that our movies color, or the way it appears on tv is WAY different than like pro movies that say like come out of Hollywood and such. But I cannot figure out what it is exactly and how to fix it. Does anyone know what it is we are lacking and how to fix it and what the best programs are to use for it? Currently we are using Adobe After Effects, Photoshop, Final Cut Express, Livetype and DVD Studio Pro. We are currently deciding whether not we should get Adobe Premier Pro or Final Cut Pro. Would any of these programs do for color correcting or would it be better to just buy a program specific for color correcting? Any comments or tips will be appreciated.
P.S. Here are some of our movies posted on youtube.
