MBR Color Corrector 2
MBR Color Corrector 2 is a video filter designed to automatically color correct / grade clips.
MBR Color Corrector is designed to automatically color correct clips. The filter works by examining all 24 color patches on a Gretag MacBeth / X-Rite ColorChecker and calculating how best to fix the footage.
Example footage from a Canon 7D camera, before and after automatic color correction.
As the automatic correction looks at all the color patches, it can easily correct saturation and white balance problems simultaneously.
Using the new interface it is possible to change the desired (target) colors of the ColorChecker. This makes it easy to match the look of a clip against a reference look. The example shows the second clip adjusted to match the first.
The new interface in version 2 makes it clear what information the filter is using to correct your footage.
Save button can be used to save a set of color patches,
which can then be loaded into many clips for use as the target card.

The easiest way to understand how the filter works is to download the trial version.
Another way to understand how the filter works is to read the manual.
The trial version is a cut down version, but maintains the key functionality without critical impediments such as watermarks or limited duration.
The main restrictions are that the trial version only works with 8bits per channel and it may only be used for non-commercial projects (or evaluating the filters suitability for a commercial project). The full list of benefits for purchasing the full version are outlined in the section below.
Benefits of the Full Version:
- Supports 8bit, 16bit and 32bit per channel.
- Multicore rendering (speeds up render times).
- Samples areas of the color card (rather than single pixels) when
Read Cardis clicked.
- Can be used for commercial projects.
The full version of the filter costs £50 per computer, and can be purchased online. Before you purchase, it is strongly recommended that try the trial version on your machine to check compatibility.

- The new version works with CC2015.
- The code has been rewritten to be much faster.
- And an overlay has been added to better show the card location when editing the effect parameters.
