Instant Color Correct your Footage in Premiere Pro

Color Correct your videos with this easy trick inside Adobe Premiere Pro. Learn how to use the Lumetri scopes to correct your footage or the X-Rite Color Checker Video with 3D LUT Creator.

Almost 2 years ago we collaborated with X-Rite and their ColorChecker Passport Video. Back then we used the ColorChecker to calibrate a camera. Using the reference colors and a vector-scope we where able to adjust the matrix inside of a Sony FS7 and record a clean image.

Today we’re taking the X-Rite ColorChecker to the post-production and fix the white-balance plus tint using Adobe Premiere Pro’s Lumetri.

A Color Checker is obviously not a tool for everyone. If you’re a beginner filmmaker, there’s of course better gear to invest in first. But once you’re getting into the field of multi-camera, commercial projects or fictional films; the X-Rite ColorChecker Video could be really useful.

In a multi-camera setup such a color checker could helps match the colors of each camera, both inside of the camera (depending on the option your model has) or in post-production.

Just like holding that clapper up before each shot, you could hold a color checker up. More information about the different possibilities can be found on the X-Rite website.
