Premiere Pro Techniques: 110 Preset & Custom Lumetri Looks

Premiere Pro Techniques: 110 Preset & Custom Lumetri Looks
  Play Video
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.

  Play Video
In this tutorial, Andrew Devis shows how to use the 'Leave Color' effect as well as a simple compositing technique to be able to focus on just the item needing to be shown without having to worry about similar colors in other parts of your shot. While the 'Leave Color' effect is powerful, it is also a simple approach which may or may not work for you depending on the footage you are working with. If you are not getting the results you want with the 'Leave Color' effect, then you may wish to use the secondary color correction techniques shown in previous tutorials to obtain a similar and slightly more controllable result.

  Play Video
In this tutorial, Andrew Devis shows how to use the Luma Corrector to change the brightness and contrast of your shot without flattening the shot. The temptation is to use the 'Brightness & Contrast' effect in Premiere Pro which is a very old effect and shouldn't really be used as it tends to squash or reduce the luma range of a shot thus lowing its quality over all. The Luma Corrector is a much more powerful tool and will work with the shot to improve it and increase the luma range giving you much more control.

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.
