going into "red" to much? Usually, I believe the contrast and color button on the TBC-3000 made the biggest differences, when I adjusted on the fly.
If the whole video has color casts, off-contrast, etc -- yes, recapture is a good idea.
On-the-fly correction never works well. It's hard to do that. More realistic is capturing segments. Adjusting, capturing next segment.
Always monitor the video, at least every 5 minutes. Never unattended captures.

Unless color values change wildly, a single setting is generally more ideal.
Just remember that the best color correction starts in hardware, ends in software. Software is not magic, and must have a good base video level to start with. Sometimes segment capturing is unavoidable.
