Corel VideoStudio – Working with NewBlue Color Filters

Thee are in addition to some pretty good auto correct features and include a full range of Color Wheels, Histograms, Vector scopes etc. for more advanced work.

That level is represented by a set of tools that comes from within the NewBlue range of effects and filters included with the program.
The first step in accessing these more user friendly tools is knowing they are there is the first place!
