Color correcting footage is somewhat of a mystery to many editors. Lots of techniques are involved. There are also the multitude of effects related to color correction, not to mention the confusing array of scopes needed to accurately measure color. Which effects do you use? Which scope displays what? How do you solve problems related to color? Fortunately, Educator, Author and Video Producer, Jeff Sengstack has just released a video tutorial series about these topics, and more, on the Lynda.com website.
All basic aspects of color correction in Premiere Pro are demystified, including primary and secondary color correction, color limiting, color enhancement and much more. Jeff simplifies the workflow by working from a subset of the full set of color correction tools, focusing only on the most effective ones. The tools of Color Finesse are also covered.
