As first run I also like to use the fast colour corrector. First thing I do is adjust the tonal range (scopes are useful to use here as they are more accuarate that your eyes) then I get a rough colour correction by using the white balance eye-dropper and then manually adjust from there. I find that is a good staring point. I usually leave the 3-way colour corrector and curves for secondary correction if its needed
Thanks. The first 1/2 of what you said is the approach I've taken so far. I'll check out the second half tonight.
