Thinking Like a Colorist

Join Robbie Carman for a free Ask a Video Pro webinar this Thursday, May 28th to learn how you can bring creative color into your editing and postproduction workflow: REGISTER

Colorist Robbie Carman began his career as an editor, so he knows both sides of the traditional divide between cutting and finishing. But he’ll be the first to tell you that the traditional divide is a thing of the past. With today’s digital workflows, powerful hardware and production tools creative work with color is much more accessible.

At NAB this year, Robbie presented a session that would have been inconceivable even just a few short years ago: “Work Like an Editor, Think Like a Colorist,” where he highlighted the new color workflows between Premiere Pro, SpeedGrade, and Project Candy. Most importantly for many filmmakers and production professionals, he showed how color can be a incorporated into everyone’s workflow – especially with the new color tools coming soon to the Creative Cloud.

Robbie kicked off his NAB presentation with a quote from Expressionist artist Vassily Kandinksy: “Color is a power which directly influences the soul.” Robbie continued, “Everything I do as a colorist, I try to live by this guiding principle.” As a speaker, he has a knack to making complex content easy and engaging.

Watch the presentation below and get inspired by Robbie’s passion – as well as a nice overview of some of the great things coming to Adobe pro video.

What’s coming next to SpeedGrade and Creative Cloud? (Hint: it’s going to be colorful)

This year at NAB 2015 we’re taking the wraps off some really exciting new tools and workflows for video pros, including a new mobile Look capture technology, a brand new Color workspace in Adobe Premiere Pro, and Creative Cloud Library support for Looks, so you can share Looks between Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Premiere Clip. And we haven’t forgotten SpeedGrade: the next release of our professional color grading application includes support for Lumetri Looks created in Premiere Pro – meaning that every color manipulation made in Premiere Pro is rendered identically in SpeedGrade. You will also get more responsive scopes, new SpeedLooks, and general performance and stability improvements.

Our team of color geniuses has done some amazing work. When you see the release you’ll see their attention has been focused above all on Premiere Pro and incorporating the Creative Cloud and mobile workflows into the creative color process. This is all about re-inventing the ways we work with color – and making color tools more accessible, and more flexible than they have ever been. Let’s take a closer look at what’s coming.
