Patrick Sheffield has developed some very interesting FCP color plugins over the years, but his “Three strip technicolor” and “Luma Toy” plugins are of interest to me, having bumping to these looks often enough in hip-hop music videos. I tried to reproduce the looks with Sony Vegas, and it was tricky, although I got close. Here are some before and after pics. The process involved the Sony “Channel Blend” & “Color Corrector” plugins, the freeware “AavColorLab” plugin (caution, it’s buggy), and in one case, multiple video tracks in compositing mode. Download the project files here to see how it’s done (Vegas Pro 8 and Vegas Platinum 8 project files included).
