Default 3 Way Color Correction Contrast Sliders

I've noticed in the 3 Way Color Correction filter, when I use the contrast sliders for the shadows, mids, highlights, it's not very sensitive. Is that working as designed for this application?

I also noticed that the range for the contrast sliders is -16 to +16. Why doesn't it have a better range?

Is it simply better to use the Y curve in the YUV filter?

Try looking at the Primary Color Correction.

That's the way the 3 way colour correction filter was designed and they took comments like this into account when they designed the Primary Colour corrector where you can get a lot more control. I still use the 3 way because of the auto white balance and the fact I can change the saturation in midtones, highlights and shadows but I generally go to the primary colour corrector first.

OK.

Looks like the Primary Color Corrector is more responsive. It also contains the curves as well.

Why doesn't Edius make the 3 way color corrector similar?

That's no excuse for not fixing the old thing before introducing a new thing, but actually I think the reason was compatibility: For existing projects a fixed 3-way color correction should not change the colors. I guess that's the main problem, which confirms the truth: "If you do it, do it right (from the beginning)!"
Most things in EDIUS are done right, but the whole color correction is quite crude (before 8.30 at least). If you compare to not-so-expensive still image software (like affinity photo) you can see that EDIUS is not very much up to date in that area.

Maybe you should spend some time watching Matt Scott's tutorials circa Edius 7 and the amazing colour corrections he demo'd. They still stand up today. Learning how to use 3-Way CC to it's full potental is a good starting point, in particular keyers, which after I learnt from Matt how to use them, has been invaluable...NOT CRUDE!!!!

Default Been through those!

I went through EVERY tutorial that was color correction/transparency related and Edius related on Matthew Scott's website. They were excellent and very helpful.
