Correcting color issues

In this next task, you are going to attempt to correct the color balance of an image that is far too warm, which means the image contains too much of red color. Images that are described as being too cold have (guess what?) too much blue in them. It's that simple. Too much green in the image is a clear sign of the cameraperson drinking too much!

The clip you will be working with in the next task (Boat_Night.avi) is too warm, because it was shot under a light that gave out an orange hue; as such, simply trying to adjust the white balance will probably not result in an ideal adjustment. Instead, you will use the Three-Way Color Corrector effect in an attempt to remedy this problem.
