Choosing RGB Versus Y´C
Each color space has a certain range, or gamut, of colors that can be represented.
Some colors represented in the Y´C
color space cannot be represented in RGB and
are said to be out of gamut. If the color space of your media files doesn’t match the
color space of your sequence, Final Cut Pro maps the media file color values to the
color space of the sequence. In some cases, colors get “clipped” to the nearest value
during conversion. This can cause very saturated colors to become less intense and is
referred to as chroma clamping.
