If the files are .m2ts then FCP may not recognize them. If so you should be able to import the files instead of using log and transfer. Take a look at this html page to see if it may help you. http: w

It's done in FCP. In the Effects window move the 3WCC (three way color correction)filter over the clip. You will probably need to render it out. Then double click the clip and it will open the filter
