Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Enhancing video with Adobe Camera Raw, part of Editing GoPro HERO Photos and Videos with Lightroom and Photoshop.
- I find that using Camera Raw as a filter is quite useful,…particularly for its noise reduction features…and sharpening.…The video file can really be brought back quite a bit…by applying selective sharpening…and a good deal of noise reduction.…This'll hide a lot of the artifacts in the image…and improve the overall clarity of the picture.…Let's open up one of our aerial shots,…which has a very pronounced bend in the horizon.…I'll bring this into Photoshop.…And you see the clip opens.…
Now this particular shot, you can see that the horizon…is bending with a curve.…This can be fixed a couple of ways,…however it's not easy to do in Lightroom…because you can't run camera profiles,…but with a video clip open in Photoshop,…you can convert for smart filters.…Once that's done, simply apply the lens correction effect.…This allows you to choose the type of camera.…And you see there that it automatically recognizes…and fixes the inherent issues with the horizon.…
If I toggle that on and off, the wide-angle distortion…has been fixed and the horizon line goes back to straight.…
Author Rich Harrington starts with the basics: importing and organizing photos, correcting distortion, adjusting color and exposure, and getting ready for print. He then moves on to working with video: developing color and exposure with adjustment layers and presets, and then rendering out the adjustments for editing in another application. He wraps things up with a short, fun tutorial on assembling a time-lapse sequence. Start watching and learn the skills you need to get the best-looking footage from the GoPro and other action cameras.
