Nondestructively apply effects, color correction, and filmic looks to video footage in Premiere Pro with adjustment layers and nesting.
- Hi, I'm Luisa Winters. Welcome to Premier Pro Guru: Adjustment Layers and Nesting. In this title, we will go through nesting. We will discuss what that is and when to use it. Then we will cover using adjustment layers, LUTs, effect presets, and more. Think of nesting of having one sequence inside of another sequence. Consider an adjustment layer as a clipping or timeline that you can use to add effects which will affect all of the clips below the track that the adjustment layer is on.
Then we will cover using different effects, masking the effects so that they effect only a portion of your clip, and saving presets for future use. We will also discuss LUTs, or lookup tables. A LUT is a pre-defined table that will let you convert a determinate set of color values to another set of values. Because we will be discussing color adjustments, I will now suggest that you wear neutral color while performing these tasks, and that you do not mix light. Don't have fluorescent light and sunlight in the same room.
They are different colors and could confuse your eyes. You should also work with a well-calibrated monitor to avoid over-compensating for a particular color. The possibilities for adjusting color are endless with all of these choices. Hopefully, sooner than later, you'll be incorporating all of these techniques into your workflow.
