A lot of times once you're finished with a program, you want to give it a look or a feel. You could even just do this with a section of a program. One of the areas under the Effects tab that I like to use to bring my video to the next level is the bottom bin, which is the Lumetri Looks. If I open this up and press the tilde key, you can better see what you have to work with. As I click on each one of these I actually bring up a visual representation of how this filter will change the entire color palette of a clip.
So if I want to give a shot a specific look, I could step through these and get a feel of what would happen if I drop this filter on my existing video. And there's a variety of looks that you can work with, cinematic looks as well as black and white looks that I could work with. There are some stylized looks such as back in the day, which we used earlier on in this course. As well as some dreamy looks and some looks that really kind of push the envelope that really scream out I am changing the look of your video, as well as some ones I really like at the very bottom under temperature which allow me to warm up the feel of the image, such as the warm gamma mix and the warm mid tones, as well as the warm over all.
Let me go ahead and shrink this window by hitting the tilde key, and throw a couple of looks on the clip, so you can see exactly how they work. For instance, I could go ahead and I really like this black and white, using a blue filter. It basically uses one element of the color palette as a predominant color to make my black and white, and this is a nice clean black and white. As a matter of fact, I like it a lot better than if I just desaturated the colors. Now, once thing to keep in mind about these looks.
If I double click to load this clip into the viewer and I look at the effects control tab. You'll notice there are no modifications I can make to this. So, it's set and forget. I can't tweak any aspects of this. All I can do is choose to use it or not to use it. Now you can create your own looks and speed grade, or you can find different looks that you can import on the internet. Now, even though we're stuck with one set of parameters per look, you can mix your looks.
So, for instance, I like this black and white, but I want to give it my own unique feel. I'm going to go ahead and scroll through this, and find something that is a little bit more aggressive. If I click on dreams, that's that green that I didn't like. It's a little bit over the top for me, but I'm going to go ahead and drop it on the clip, because I like the way it blows out the image. So now I want to flip flop this and we learned earlier in the course when working with filters.
That filter order is critical. So if I put dreams on first followed by the black and white filter I can get a black and white look and get that blown out soft effect from the dreams. So as you see this adds kind of an interesting feel to my show. Not sure if I would use it on a cooking program, but I do like what I can do by mixing and reordering the various looks effects.
And just like our other filters I can select, copy, select the other clips, and right click, and paste attributes, and go ahead and throw both of the effects onto all my other clips. (SOUND) So, take a look at the Lumetri looks in your Effects control panel and you can once again bring your program to a different level.
