Join photographer and author Chris Orwig in Photoshop Lightroom 4 Essentials: Organizing and Sharing with the Library Module, as he explores the interface of this popular image-management program and shows how to use its Library module to organize and manage a photo library. The course covers importing both still images and video; shooting in tethered-capture mode; organizing and rating images with flags, stars, labels, and location tags; and working with collections. The course also details how to export, email, and share photos, and introduces the Lightroom 4 video-editing features, as well as its ability to work together with the full editing power of Photoshop. Exercise files are included with the course.
Here we're going to look at another way that we can use Presets, when looking to change the color and tone of our Video files. You may have noticed that up in the QuickDevelop pull-down menu for the default settings for our Presets, we have a group of presets which are dedicated to video. Here we have six different presets. Now what are these and what are these all about? Well if we make a selection of one of these we won't see that warning dialog which says, hey you know what, this Preset it use these controls and these controls you can't use them on video.
In other words it's stripped away all of that. It only uses controls that are applicable to video. So in this case it kind of gives us a little bit more security in regards to knowing how this will actually look and it just kind of speeds up the overall process. Now what's the downside with these? Well the downside in my opinion, and why I show these second, is that there are only six. We only have six options. This is a little bit limiting. So I wanted to highlight that we can use any of these preinstalled presets.
We may have mixed or varied results. In other words, we're not going to be able to use all of that preset to its entirety, just the controls that are applicable to the video file. We can also use any of our own User Presets, or presets we've purchased and installed. And then finally we can also use these Lightroom Video Presets. What you'll want to do is experiment with these. Open up one of your own video files and try out all of the different presets and see how it affects the look of your video clips. Now once you've decided to apply a preset you can always undo this, regardless of the type of preset.
All that you need to do is to simply navigate back to this Default Settings option, you can select that and then it will reset or restore the video clip back to its default settings.
