What programs do you all prefer to use when doing your own color work? Why?

I would say a good deal of us recognize the need for a good colorist in a proper color suite. Color correcting at home can lead to unpredictable results when screened (calibration problems/monitoring problems etc).
That being said, often, for things never intended for wide distribution (web for example) many people use the controls in their NLE, and/or a program like Apple Color.
I cannot stress enough, however, how much help a real colosit in a full suite is-- the outcome is almost always better than can be achieved from home. You're often paying for their talent much more so than their equipment.

Memochrome*. 32,000 frames freely programmable, Excel management, 50 steps per color (RGB), instant repeat. I am not yet happy with the Schwarzschild corrections but that will come.

It's a light control over time in conjunction with step printers. At value 1 the exposure is shortest, at 50 longest. Terrific precision

I use the built-in Color Correction features in Avid Media Composer. Not as good a Color :(, but I can do quite a bit with what it does offer.
