Andrew Kramer, you're the best! You just solved an issue I ran into in all of 10 minutes!

Quick question:

You showed how you would colour correct to give a more 'cinematic' look, but outside of the context of a tutorial, would that normally be left until the editing stage?

I'm just thinking that if I have a scene to edit together and all the other footage is 'direct from camera', it would be way more difficult to match the colour corrected VFX shot with the 'raw' footage than leave the VFX colour correction alone, and do it all in one pass at the editing stage.

Thanks for the amazing tutorials and the free plugins!

Hey Andrew Kramer, How are you? I hope you are fine and healthy as always. I wanted to say 2 things.

First, I love your tutorials and I really do respect you and your work. Hast of to you. Love you man. You inspired me for the VFX.

Second, Please report this guy. He has released a showreel and calls some of your work his work. I really am angry on what he did. It is like an insult to a pioneer like you. Please, I request you to report him. I would feel great. Here is the link to his showreel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9NOK3qrTHtI&feature;=youtu.be

Once again, thanks for your work and keep inspiring more people like me.
