Here's the situation:

- I have a video package that will be played back in a scene shot by tungsten lights.

- Pretty much all TV sets are balanced for daylight 5500k, so if my footage is shown on the TV during the shoot, it will look blue.

- I need to convert a standard 5500k daylight sequence to a tungsten balance. If a TV set were a lamp, I need to peg a Wratten 85 gel over it.

- Anyone know of a Daylight to Tungsten filter for Final Cut Pro?

- Come to think of it, anyone know of a Tungsten to Daylight filter too?
