CreativeCOW presents Color Correction 3: Vignette Techniques -- Adobe Premiere Pro Tutorial



©2010 CreativeCOW.net. All rights reserved.


Vignettes help to focus the action and keep the audience looking where you want them to look. You can make them as obvious or as subtle as you like and once you know what they are and how to use them you will see them being used everywhere. In this short Premiere Pro tutorial Andrew Devis demonstrates two different vignette approaches in Premiere Pro to keep your audiences attention on the action rather than on the background.

Great Job. These are the things we need to know about premiere. I've been editing for 10 years now and didn't know how to drop the circle on the black layer like that. It makes my life so much easier, thank you. Also, I knew about the garbage mattes but seeing how you manipulate then lights up the light bulb a bit more. Thanks again!!

Hi again Cris

You should have fast blur in CS4 - it has been around a long time and I opened up my version of CS4 and can confirm it is there!

What you may have done is left something in the search box at the top of the effects panel which will reduce your search to items that are spelt the same way as what you have in that box! So, use the little x mark to the right and clear the search panel so you can search all your effects.

It will be under Video Effects>Blur and Sharpen>Fast Blur

If you really don't have it, then you ought to have a chat with Adobe as it is part of the standard suite.

Hope this helps
Andrew

Firstly, your tutorials are great, thanks for the straight forward explanations.

I use Premiere CS4 and I don't have Fast Blur is that in CS5 only.

Thanks

In this Premiere Pro video tutorial, Andrew Devis will show you how to apply color correction to a much more specific area. Starting with an explanation of the three-way color corrector, Andrew will then go on to show how to use the secondary colour correction function to specify a color range and reduce the saturation of that specific range rather than the whole shot. Whilst being a more advanced technique, secondary color correction can make all the difference to a shot when something just doesn't look right or stands out much more than it should
