    Am I able to do secondary color correction?

    Hi, I have MC7, no Boris, no Avid FX.  Will I need to go outside of Avid to color correct specific spots on shots?

    When you open your Color Correction, if the last tab on the right is  "Sec" then you have Symphony.   Alternatively, in Hue Offsets if you have 4 color wheels instead of three, then you have Symphony.

    Depending on the shot and what you are trying to do, you can also achieve some secondary color correction using Animatte.  There are a bunch of tutorials online.   Here's one:
