IGNORING These COLOR Grading Tricks Will Ruin Your Edits
Make Bad camera’s look cinematic
One of the colors that most digital camera’s are often very sensitive to, is the color green. When shooting in a location with lots of grass and trees, your shot may look ‘flashy’ and the greens will look very very saturated. Luckily there’s an easy fix for that using Lumetri Color in Premiere Pro.
In the curves tab, find the Hue VS Saturation curve. Then with the color picker, select the greens of your video. With the middle point you can simply drag it down and that will result in a beautiful balanced color grade.
Muzzle Flash reflections with Lumetri
Guns also leave behind a source of light when pulling the trigger. The muzzle flash is actually ‘fire’ and reflects light on the gun and on the body parts close to it. In darker rooms, the gunshot will be even brighter and might reflect on a wall. To recreate this effect with lumetri, increase the exposure of the video your working on.
Fire also leaves behind a warm color, so don’t forget to add a little warmth with the temperature slider. Next step is creating a mask on the lumetri effect. Just draw a simple mask around the hand, gun, arm and face. Now all that’s left to do is animate the mask opacity so that the light reflection will be visible for only one frame.
