Once an input LUT has been applied to a clip, you can start to customize the settings to normalize the exposure and color of the shot. How do you know if the clip is normalized? In this movie, author Richard Harrington walks you through how to normalize a clip by adjusting the settings on an input LUT in Adobe Premiere Pro.
- Once that input LUT is applied,…it's a good idea to take a look…at your overall exposure and contrast.…Remember, the input LUT will remap things…for the camera, but you should still use…the basic corrective sliders.…Looking at this here, I've brought up my scopes.…And it's pretty easy to see what's happening.…Remember, clicking the icon here for the wrench…will let you see the RGB parade which is quite useful…as well as a histogram or a waveform.…You can decide to look at what information…is useful to you.…
In my case, I prefer to look at the waveform…and the RGB parade.…I can see that once this LUT has been applied…that we have a few issues to address.…The red's a little bit strong.…Now, if you are curious, clicking the Auto button…will often attempt to fix some of that.…You'll see that it tried to white balance in,…mostly balanced things out,…but the reds are coming through a little bit strong.…In this case, I can recover the highlights slightly.…
And you see, as I start to drag those down,…how they come more into balance.…
