Color Correction with Premiere Pro CS5.5

with Maxim Jago

Video: Welcome

(music playing) Hi, there. I'm Maxim Jago. I'm a filmmaker, writer and Adobe master trainer. If you've been cutting with Premiere Pro for a little while, it's likely you've reached the point where you're getting curious about some of the more advanced features. While many editors turn to After Effects for fine finishing work, Premiere Pro also has powerful tools to achieve very similar results. In this course, I'll be introducing you to the core technologies that colorists use all over the world. Once we've learned about key tools like Vector Scopes, Wave Forms and Color Wheels, we'll be working with the Advanced Color Correction tools, in Premiere Pro, to correct problem shots and give a finished look to our media. Much of the work of color correction is problem solving. So, we'll be working with difficult media to find out if we save the day and truly fix it in post.

Color correction is one of those sets of skills many editors put off for another day—partly because they can make do with simple adjustments, and partly because many of the controls and options are a little alien. In this course, master editor Maxim Jago demystifies color correction and gives detailed explanations of the key controls, options, workflows, and best practices for color correction with Adobe Premiere Pro. After introducing the standard tools for measuring color and light, Maxim covers the Fast Color Corrector, the Three-Way Color Corrector, and other color correction effects. Plus, learn how to fix and match color with presets, as well as how to use After Effects and third-party plugins to do the few things that Premiere Pro can't do.

Topics include:
  • The color correction challenge
  • Standard tools for measuring and adjusting color and light
  • The Fast Color Corrector
  • The Three-Way Color Corrector
  • Other color correction effects
  • Fixing and matching colors with presets
  • Using After Effects for color correction

As well as using the tools provided by Premiere Pro, we'll look at third party plug-ins and touch on transferring our new color correction skills from Premiere Pro to After Effects. Including the workflow for sharing media between both applications. I hope you'll share my joy in understanding and using some of these powerful finishing tools in Premiere Pro. And that your new skills will take your editing and finishing to the next level.
