ColorFast is a new plug-in from NewBlueFX used for color correcting, color grading, and color enhancing. And you may wonder, "What are the differences in those terms?" In this video review/tutorial (see the clip on page 2), we'll work with a piece of footage from a recent project that calls for all three kinds of color adjustment, will illustrate how ColorFast approaches each task.

This could be necessary if you shot your footage with incorrect white balance or other camera settings for the environment in which you were shooting.
