Premiere Pro


- Hi I'm Jeff Sengstack, the author of Premiere Pro Color Correction and Enhancement. If you are a video hobbyist, an event videographer, or work in a small production studio then I think this course is for you. Premiere Pro and other software products bring a full collection of color correction tools to anyone who cares to use them. My goal in this course is to show you how helpful color wheels, other color correction effects and scopes can be. And to show you how easily you can put them to good use. Premiere Pro has a full suite of effects to cover all basic aspects of color correction.

I've tested all of them and have dramatically narrowed down the number of effects you need to use. I explain all the standard color correction steps starting with contrast and brightness to give your clips some extra punch going onto adjusting color and saturation to remove a color cast for example or make colors more vivid. I show you how to limit your color fixes to specific regions within a frame and show you how to match the tonality and color of one clip with another. Finally, I show you how to enhance your videos. For instance give them a warm, film-like look or use vignettes to focus viewer's attention on a subject.

So let's get started with Premiere Pro, Color Correction and Enhancement.
