Does anyone have any recommendations of FREE color correct plug-ins for Final Cut 7 to apply to footage shot specifically on the Black Magic Cinema Camera. We shot it RAW in ProRes and my editor is cutting on the FCP7.


I just want an easy fix before sending a rough cut to the client.


We will later hand off the locked picture to a colorist for a proper color grading.


(I use FCPX myself, and have a free plugin for BMCC Flat on that system. Just not sure if something similar & generous exist for FCP7 users)

    I doubt it...as the camera was announced last year, released THIS year...and FCP 7 was discontinued over 2.5 years ago.  Very few people making anything for a DOA editing app.

    the three way color corrector which comes with fcp is pretty simple and quick to do.  You can copy a correction from one clip to other similar clips.  Hopefully your editor has some experience with it.  Don't know of any automatic tools out there.

    Probably the closest you'll come is the free DaVinci Resolve software Black Magic is offering, but that's not a simplistic solution. I understand that Resolve 9 has some support for RAW conversion that may work for your purposes.


    Good luck
