Ever hear the refrain "let's just fix it in post"? Even under the best lighting conditions, your footage can have exposure problems. Luckily, you can correct issues and even improve average video after the fact, aka in post production, with Premiere Pro. Rich Harrington explores various methods for fixing exposure problems: using effects, adjustment layers, toning, blend modes, and more. For more complicated footage problems or an extra boost, Rich shows you how to use the more advanced specialized tools in After Effects. Note that these techniques are designed for the Creative Cloud, but most of will work in older versions of the programs.

Hi, my name's Rich Harrington and today, we're going to explore fixing exposure and color problems with video footage. To do this, I'm going to be using Adobe Premiere Pro, the Creative Cloud Edition. But these techniques will work on earlier versions of Premiere Pro as well. We'll explore how to take advantage of different filters and effects to really get the job done. And occasionally, where there's a extra little boost needed, we'll jump into After Effects, take advantage of some of the more advanced compositing or specialized effects that exist there.
Almost every shot that I get into an edit suite has a problem. You can shoot it the correct way but there's always environmental conditions or, user mistakes or just sheer things with the limitations of the camera. You can always make the footage look better, and I find that getting the exposure right is essential before you start to tackle tasks with color. So, we'll explore the process of getting great exposure, and along the way, we'll pick up a few color issues as well.
