This complete course will take you to the essentials of color correction with the Lumetri color tools inside Premiere Pro. You will learn different techniques while also understanding how color philosophy works.
We'll fly together through this wonderful world of colors. And on the end you will be able to fix color issues and take your shots to a higher professional level.
What do I get?
What will I learn?
You will learn a complete essential training of color correction and grading in Premiere Pro.
For who is this course?
This course is aimed at beginners in the color correction/grading field. You are not required to have any pre-knowledge, however some basic experience with Premiere Pro will help a lot.
This course is not for experienced colorist.
What is Lumetri?
Since the release of Adobe Premiere Pro CC 2015 we can now find the Lumetri engine inside Premiere itself. Before it was only part of the color correction program "Adobe Speedgrade". These lumetri tools have so much possibilities to make professional color corrections and grading that we don't need a dedicated program for it anymore.
Hello filmmakers! I'm Jordy, a filmmaker and Youtuber from Beglium. In this introduction I'd like to introduce myself further and give you some quick information before we start on the course.
In this lecture we're going to prepare our workspace and find out where the different color grading tools of the Lumetri engine can be found.
Some people talk about color correction while other people talk about color grading. But what's the difference? Find it out in this lecture!
Like with paint, digital colors also have three base colors. With these base colors we can create or manipulate new colors. In this lecture you will learn how to change a color using RGB.
Colors can bring a certain emotion. If you watch the same shot each time with a different grading, you will feel a different emotion with it. This is the psychology of color grading. In this lecture we'll go over the very basics and see what kind of emotion lays at the base colors.
Test your knowledge of the first chapter. We've gathered one question from each lecture.
In this lecture we will have a look at all the basic color tools. Like the Temperature, exposure, contrast, saturation and more.
With the Premiere Pro update in June 2016 (CC 2015.3) we got a new feature that allows us to automatically chose the white balance. From the basic tools we now have a color picker to select a white point in the video. Lumetri will automatically set the correct white balance upon that selection.
When changing something you always want to measure what you're doing. In color correction we use the waveform to measure the exposure of a shot. In this lecture you will learn how to read and use the waveform tool.
Not only exposure can be measured, but also the saturation of the colors. Here it's also important that we keep track of how the colors look in our vectorscope. This lecture will show you how to read and use this tool.
Now that we've learned how to use the basic color tools and it's measurement tools, we can perform a basic color correction. In this lesson we will fix an overexposed shot with off-colors.
Test your knowledge of the second chapter. We've gathered one question from each lecture.
LUT's are small files which can be loaded into Premiere Pro. These "small files" carry a bunch of information that will change the colors and exposure of your video in a certain way. IN this lecture you will learn how to use one of these LUT's
The next tab in the Lumetri color tools has a bunch of creative effects. From here we can apply special looks.
Under creative adjustments we can find several interesting tools like the saturation and vibrance. Both alter the saturation but in a different way. It's therefore important that these two controls are in balance.
In this lecture you will learn how to alter the colors and expose with the RGB curves. This is a different way of working, but can sometimes deliver your desired outcome easier.
Each video clip consists out of multiple colors. With the saturation curse we're able to increase or decrease the saturation of each individuel color. This can create interesting outcomes like the "sin-city" look.
The colors wheels are the most popular tools to make changes to your clip. Just like the basic tools and curves it can alter your saturation, hue and exposure. But for some situations these wheels are easier and faster in use. Find out how they work in this lecture.
With the HSL secondary we're able to select a specific color and manipulate that. This extra lesson covers a new feature form the June 2016 update. We'll take the tool into a real practice as well where we'll recreate the Sin City look.
Vignetting is sometimes interesting but other times we would like to remove it. With the vignette tool we can add a beatifull vignetting or remove one if needed.
Test your knowledge of the third chapter. We've gathered one question from each lecture.
In this lecture you will learn how to adjust the colors of one specific part in your shot. This could be the face of a certain person. But what if that persons moves around? No worries, you will also learn how to track that movement.
When moving the camera from one room to another, your colors could drastically change. At such a point you would like to animate your color grading to that it makes a transition from one room to another. In this lecture you'll learn two ways to do this.
We shoot an interview with two cameras, but when we start editing on them we see that the colors don't match. I think we've all been there. But luckily we can fix that with the Lumetri color tools. Learn in this lecture how to do that.
Performing a green-key is usually done to place your subject in another world (the new background). But it isn't always so easy to match your studio lighting with that of the background. In this lecture you will learn how to grade your shot so it matches your background.
Test your knowledge of the fourth chapter. We've gathered one question from each lecture.
