I recently started creating YouTube videos on Final Cut Pro.

Customer Question

Hello! I recently started creating YouTube videos on Final Cut Pro. I have a Canon 70D, so needless to say my video quality is pretty good. However, I want to take the quality to the next level. I have been watching a YouTuber's video who has the same camera as me, yet her video saturation and brightness is a million times better. Here is a link to a video of hers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TsHZ7K0zNTE
My question is, how do I achieve the same video look as hers? I also know that the color corrections in Final Cut Pro are limited, so Im assuming I will have to purchase a plug in. Thanks so much for your help!

Hi Welcome to JustAnswer

I will take a look at the video you shared and get back to you .

There are two settings that affect visual quality and playback performance in the Viewer: the Quality setting and the Media setting. Both are found in the Viewer Options pop-up menu in the upper-right corner of the Viewer.

Set playback quality

In the Quality section of the Viewer Options pop-up menu, choose one of the following:

Better Quality: Choose this option to display full-resolution video frames in the Viewer. This setting may decrease playback performance for high-quality, large-frame-size video.

Better Performance: Choose this option to display video in the Viewer at reduced resolution. Decreasing the size of the media maintains playback performance even for very large media files.

Choose the type of playback media

In the Media section of the Viewer Options pop-up menu, choose one of the following:

Optimized/Original: Choose this option to use the optimized media (in the Apple ProRes 422 format) for playback. If optimized media is not available, Final Cut Pro uses the original media for playback.

Proxy: Choose this option to use medium-quality proxy media (converted to one-half resolution) rather than full-resolution media for playback. Choosing this option increases playback performance but lowers the video quality. In Final Cut Pro, proxy media is in the Apple ProRes 422 Proxy format.

You can use the Info inspector to determine whether optimized or proxy media files exist for a given clip. For more information, see View a clip’s information. If you choose Proxy in the Viewer Options pop-up menu and no proxy media file exists, a Missing Proxy File alert icon appears in the Viewer.

Important: If you use proxy media for playback, make sure to switch back to optimized/original media before sharing your project. This ensures the highest quality in the exported file.
