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.

Hi Andrew, I watched a few of you videos trying to work out how to Output legally scaled video for TV. I am still confused as I am working in completely file based digital media, but am outputting to Rec709 for TV and BluRay. On one video you selected the Setup tick box but them manually tok your black levels to 7.5 which seemed to me to be doubling up on the process. But is it the opposite where unticking the setup box gives you values of one to 100 with broadcast safe. Ideally i want something that clips at Broadcast Safe but shows me when it's clipping. Is there a setting best for that?

Hi James

Probably the best approach to be certain and to see what you have clipped would be to use the Broadcast colours effect in the color correction section of the effects and then open you reference monitor and perhaps choose YC waveform and turn the effect on and off to see what changes have been made. Try that and see how you get on. At least you will know that the end result is broadcast safe.

All the best
Andrew

... because it's all about stories ...

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.
