Color was a professional color grading software application produced by Apple Inc. for their Mac OS X operating system. It is one of the major applications included as part of Apple's Final Cut Studio 3 video production suite. It was discontinued with the release of Final Cut Pro X, Motion 5, and Compressor 4. The application was originally called FinalTouch and was developed by Silicon Color, until the company was acquired by Apple in October 2006.[1]

Motion picture images often look whitewashed or grayed out when scanned directly off of the negative during telecine. One basic purpose of "Color" is to add the vibrancy and richness of color back to the video once it is transferred to a digital format, normally for further editing.

Color 1.5 was introduced on July 23, 2009 along with the new Final Cut Studio 11.5.
