CreativeCOW presents Premiere Pro CS6: 55 Color 9 Secondary Color Correction -- Adobe Premiere Pro basics Tutorial



©2012 CreativeCOW.net. All rights reserved.


In this tutorial, Andrew Devis shows how to use the tools in the secondary color corrector to perform some secondary color correction on an over saturated item in the shot. Andrew shows how to create and view a mask that is specific to the color of the item in question and then how to finesse that mask with the various tools in the secondary color correction section. Secondary color correction is an option in quite a few color tools in Premiere Pro, so learning how to use this tool will prove very useful to your editing and color correction and color grading work-flow.

Re: Premiere Pro CS6: 55 Color 9 Secondary Color Correction
by Andrew Devis
Chewie! Good to hear from you :o)

I think there is a simple answer to your question. If you are colour correcting - in that the shot has a problem which needs to be fixed - then colour correct and add the film look after.

But if all you are doing is colour grading - in that you are going for the emotional effect but the footage itself is ok - then add the film look and do any further grading you wish on from there.

Just to mention it - in CS_Next of Premiere Pro (which you will get soonish if you are on Creative Cloud) there is a new panel with some presets which will make adding a grade as simple as adding a preset. I suspect there will be lots of people building grades for people to buy and add to Premiere Pro. Otherwise, a really great plug-in for this kind of thing (final grading) is the Red Giant Software 'Looks' plug-in http://www.redgiant.com/products/all/magic-bullet-looks/ I love it ... but it does cost a bit which you may be able to get a significant discount on as you are in education ....

Anyway, hope that helps and I'll look forward to getting the link to the final version :o)

Re: Premiere Pro CS6: 55 Color 9 Secondary Color Correction
by Ian Hagerty
Hello Master Yoda,
How are you doing? I've been a very busy jedi myself with teaching and editing my current video. It is 90 percent finished so once it is, I'd like you to watch it and perhaps give me your honest opinion. What do you think? Here is my question today- I've watched your series on COLOR CORRECTION and again, kudos to you for putting together these tutorials. They are excellent! Once you have color corrected the footage (e.g., white balance) do you then add a preset like (e.g., vintage color look) OR do you forget about the color correction, add the preset and adjust as you go? So basically my question is whether you should always color correct and then add special effects or presets? Thanks again (I hope my question makes sense)... Chewie...

In this tutorial, Andrew Devis explains the level sliders in the 'Fast Color Corrector,' which help us to set up the contrast of a shot as well as change the brightness of a shot. This way of dealing with brightness and contrast is significantly better than using the 'Brightness & Contrast,' effect which tends to crush your luminance ranges and so degrade your shot. Andrew explains both the input and output sliders and show what a difference they can make to a poorly lit shot.

In this tutorial, Andrew Devis goes through a new option that will be coming with the next release of Adobe Premiere Pro called Lumetri Looks - which gives you the option to apply .Look files created in Adobe SpeedGrade directly to your footage in Premiere Pro. While this option at first glance seems to only offer the ability to apply presets already created, there is also a way in which you can create your own grades in SpeedGrade, save them as .Look files and then apply those custom grades to your footage or to an adjustment layer in Premiere Pro CS_Next. In this tutorial, Andrew shows the new option and how it may be used with SpeedGrade CS_Next to create, save and apply your own custom looks.
