Channel mixing/filter settings on Mac

30 November 2012 - 08:55 AM

I'm looking for suggestions for any Mac software/workflow to incorporate some easy channel mixing/filters to color-correct available light video. I'm not making art, my videos are essentially just "movie dive logs" for myself and buddies, and I want to make them more bearable to watch. I typically have been doing everything in iMovie, but it lacks the color correction functions to help account for blue/green water, so I've started importing clips into Photoshop to use Channel Mixers and Photo Filter adjustment layers. So far it's been pretty cumbersome. Is there a "quick'n'easy" way to do this, preferably without needing to drop too many hundreds of dollars on expensive software packages just to use this one function?

Just to level-set, this is the typical output (please lower your expectations accordingly):

Sorry for the huge embed, the regular youtube/media bbcode doesn't seem to be working for me.

GoPro Hero3 buoyancy?

28 November 2012 - 10:42 AM

Hoping someone here has already done the legwork on this so I don't have to reinvent the wheel on a rig I'm working on...does anyone know the saltwater buoyancy of a Hero 3 in housing without any attachments/mounts? My Hero3 is on order and I won't have it on-hand for a few weeks to test myself.
