I am thinking about buying a X-Rite ColorChecker on sale until December 31, 2020. and how I might use it with various software. I know some video editors use vector scopes and other graphs to show levels.

Ideally you would white balance in your camera but I was wondering if a simpler solution might work. I don't think this would require a calibrated monitor if you are matching between a reference and a colorchecker in a photo or video.

*Update*
I created a colorchecker based on the sRGB values and attached it to this post. I also created a style and output to YouTube. 
In my limited testing it was easier to make corrections using one of the 3 RGB coloration options (click on color to change) instead of Hue adjustments.
*Suggestions*
Add pop up Macbeth Checker moveable window option to Color Correction.
Color Correction, Levels, should have eyedropper to select luminance values from media.
Color Correction, Levels, Add a white balance option with eyedropper to select 18% gray area.

Yes, I know I'm spelling color wrong.:)
