If I asked a question two days ago, and no one answered it, and I still urgently need an answer, should I re-ask it?

It happened. I cried.

If you are referring to, “How do I do a color pass in Final Cut Express? ” then I didn’t answer that one, because I didn’t know how to answer it.

Haha, sorry to hear. But I’m gonna have to say no. Chances are, if your question was not answered it is because no one has an answer to it.

... Okay.

What if I’ve found a new way to phrase the question?

This article confirmed what I had supposed about FCE: no real-time color correction. I have FCE on my iMac at home and work with FCP at work (teaching at a college media department). I can best guess that Apple decided that real-time color correction is a “pro feature” and had to draw the line somewhere. They did refer to the non-real-time color correction that was introduced in FCP v.3.

Good luck with that.

@sndfreQ – Thanks. Actually, I managed to find a rather complex way to achieve the effect I wanted, by searching “Pleasantville color effect Final Cut Express” (I hadn’t heard of that terminology before, and I suspect it’s just a nickname). The solution is here.

This question was mainly to see what the etiquette is for posting questions. If I want to reword it (for example, to say “How do I remove all colors but one from a video clip, similar to what is used in the movie Pleasantville?” rather than my original question), is it alright to do so?

Yes that would have been fine. Also, the original question was referencing the real-time color corrector, which is why I was unsure of an answer…I had done a few projects on FCE, and remembered having to revert to the “old school” color corrector. I wasn’t sure if it was me or that perhaps I had somehow disabled or mis-configured my iMac at home.

Thanks for the update and clarification :)

Oh! I’m relatively new to video production, so I’m not surprised that I used the wrong wording. I’m actually using FCE4 so I don’t have to worry about the real-time versus non-real-time color correction. Thanks for your assistance, though. In the future, I’ll double-check my terminology.

Why don’t you just address us again with the problem and then give a side note saying you NEED an answer, by the way, I have no clue how to answer it.
