- 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 Premier Pro the Creative Cloud edition, but these techniques will work on earlier versions of Premier 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 little extra boost needed, we'll jump into after effects to 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 could 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
