Color correction and color grading are essential if you want your video to look professional. Since your video will likely be watched on many different devices with many different screens, chances are it will look slightly different to everyone.
To optimize the quality of the image for everyone, you can use some of the tools built into Premiere Pro to analyse the color in your video and adjust them accordingly. This also avoids making incorrect decisions that can arise from your own monitor not representing the colour accurately.
In this tutorial we will cover:
The Waveform Monitor - Shows you the luma (brightness) distribution in your image. Ideal for analysing and correcting the exposure of your image.
The RGB Parade - Like the waveform monitor, but with 3 different displays, one for each colour channel. Great for adjusting white balance and identifying incorrect colour tints and hues in the image.
The Vectorscope - Shows the colour distribution in your image. Great for adjusting for colour shifts and, using the skin tone line, the best tool to ensure that your skin colours are represented accurately.
