1. Introduction: and this course I'm gonna teach you how to color, Correct and stylized your footage and adobe premiere pros New Luminary Color workspace. First, we'll explore the workspace while color correcting our exercise clip, and they will create three of her own custom looks by the end of the course, will learn how to save our custom looks, is presets and even export them out to share with the class. Now the limited color workspace was added in June 2015 so be sure you are up to date with your version of Adobe Premiere Pro Let's get started. 2. Color Correction: So for introduction to the Loom ITRI color panel. We're going to do some very basic color correction on our exercise file. And the exercise files have included a premiere pro project file and a video file that the video file is a 14 2nd clip of a manatee cruising around here in Florida. This is Crystal River on the west coast of Florida. Definitely a bucket list spot. You should check out if you haven't been before. Super cool area. Okay, so we're gonna fix up this clip a little bit now. First we're gonna show you. Let's create a sequence. Drag this in here, create a new sequence through this in the sequences folder. Okay, so the first thing we're gonna do is launch the color workspace, which up here, we'll see color click that this will bring you into the Lumen tree color workspace. If you don't see this toolbar appear, just get a window workspaces and head color and launch the same thing. Okay, so the first thing you will notice is the limited color Panamint panel takes up the whole right side here. There's five different subsections for you to get creative, do some color correction. Whatever you need, Dio. Now the big chains, if you've used Premiere Pro previous versions of Premiere Pro is the big changes the Scopes panel here. There's a limit tree scopes panel, which is very customizable. I'm a big fan of this new layout. Um, but this story, we're just gonna have the vector scope in the way for monitors over here. Okay, so let's start by selecting our clip, we're gonna start doing some basic correction on it. So let's open up Basic correction section in the luminary color panel. And the first thing I noticed is is pretty, pretty nasty green cast to this on the white balance is a little off. So we're gonna pump up the magenta start to add some life back into this clip. Uh, too much. That's a lot there. Let's bring him up closer. CEO, this looks it's looking pretty good. Okay, Now his face is if you look at the mantes faces, I want Brighton that up a little bit, bump up the mid tones. So there's some slider bars here which we can adjust the exposure in the contrast a little bit if we'd like. But if you're comfortable with curves. There's a whole curve section we can go into here with RGB curves. Um, bump up. The Midtown is just a little bit, but if you're not comfortable with curves again, you can stay in basic correction. Here, do your correcting here. Spring down the blacks. A little shadows goes down, actually, this way. Okay, so we've done a little bit of correcting hairless, even bump up the saturation a little bit. Nah, too much Scient colors rocking there. Close this. Now there's these check marks next to each section. The panel here. And if you just click him, turn him off and on. You can see your changes now. The other big thing you need to be aware of here is in the effect controls panel of the clip. You're gonna notice a luminary color effect that gets added as soon as you start changing and making adjustments in the limit tree color panel. It adds. This affect your clip, which you can turn off and on and has all the same effects here. It's just a different way of looking. That's what's nicer about the Luminant luminary. Color panel is much easier way of color, correcting and and customizing your looks in this interface here. But you just need to be aware about that, and you can adjust. Over here is, well, same changes. If you're just here, changes here if you just hear changes here now that we're comfortable with the limit. Tree color workspace in basic color correction Let's get started with customizing are unique looks. 3. Custom Looks: we finished our color correction, and we're ready to create our custom looks. If you look in the exercise files, there's a video file. Manatee underscore. Color corrected. We're gonna use this clip for our to create a custom looks. So I had to import this clip. We're going to create a new sequence. We're gonna call it Manatee. Look one. And actually, let's duplicate this two more times since we're gonna be creating of So I misspelled it. So 12 and three. Okay, bring is in there. So let's start on. Look one. So what do we want to create exactly for the 1st 1? Why don't we do something like an instagram? One of those instagram filters that air high, high contrast, high saturation the vignette. Okay, so let's go into creative here and again. You can do a lot of these effects and different ways. You could do this and curves. You could do it here in the creative panels. Go ahead and do this in the creative panel, Busta sharpened vibrant saturation. I'm not really looking at the broadcast levels, and just and I'm gonna be a little over exaggerated on some of these just for your, you know, again, for illustrative purposes to help you see what what could be done here. But by no means are his any of this. Some of this might not be exactly broadcast standards. Okay, boosted the saturation There it's boost the contrast by creating like an S curve here in our curves. Let's let's give you that last one. That's way high contrast and we could even boost the saturation a little. Here there's a saturation. You bring it all the way up saturation, you bring it down, takes out saturation. So let's just I believe that word is since we boosted the saturation already in the creative section. Okay, now let's add that vignette. Drag this down and take the midpoint in and feather it out a little. And you know what? You had a little bit of detail in the face. Maybe there we go. OK, so there's look one. Let's call that. Ah, that's Instagram. Let's call it Ah, hipster Manatee. Here we go. All right for our next look, let's do the opposite. Let's create like a low contrast kind of a faded film. Look, case that we're gonna go into creative here There's actually already a faded film bar here that we can that'll make it washed out for us. But that's no fun. Let's not do that. Okay? We're gonna lower the sharp in lower the vibrance. Um, we'll lower the saturation in the curve section. It's going occurs and lower the saturation just a little bit. Just maybe right there. And we can do a reverse s curve. Um, so this looks like you wash it out a little bit, maybe take the blue tics and blew out. So I had some some of that yellow. Oh, that's way too much. Let me get even tinted up a little, Put some yellow in the mid tones kind of crazy here. Maybe we could even come back up here over the contrast. Even no more. Okay, now it's looking thanks and washed out. We could even see if we can. Maybe a minute. This way. All right, let's not overdo it. We've already have done so. That's, uh, let's call this indie film manatee. All right for the 3rd 1 what's just what we do like a black and white? It's make is on humanity. So let's going to curves here Take the saturation all the way out Bump up the contrast quite a bit Make it harsh There we go And add a crazy than yet all the way Let's just go crazy here Make it all the way in Further away Out there we go. Got a zombie Manatee Dawn of the dead man ity Okay, so we have our three custom looks now and the next module we're going to see how we can save these out in share. Um 4. Presets and Look Files: the writing different ways we can share these custom looks. Let's say we're creating a sequence and we want to apply this look toe all the same clips We would want to create a preset so we would create a pre says we go up in here into the limiter panel. We do save preset as long as our clip is selected here. But the look we want I'm going to call this hipster manatee. This is our instagram Ueo Super over contrast High contrast Hipster Manti We're gonna do that for all three. Let's go to Indy film Manatee and Do Save Preset and the film Manatee And then we're gonna go toe Zelin Humanity save Crease it zone Manti Okay, now where these are is if you go down to your effects panel here you open up preset. We see these all here So it's for instance, we have our zombie clip here. Forget to the effect Controls panel Let's say this was just a normal clip and it had nothing on it. Just a standard Manti clip. We wanted to apply it. Let me just drag it over from the presets. Drop it on there and then boom, You're ready to go. One use of this is you could create an adjustment layer down here. And you could put that adjustment layer over a collection or a group of clips and apply the preset to the adjustment layer. And then that would affect all the clips. Okay. And the other way, another way to share these looks is to create and save a look file. So let's do that. What this allows you to You can see you can export these as a look file or a cube file. If we export a look file, we just export it to our desktop. Um, not indie with a Y, Andy. Wait, which which look was this was this are this is hipster manatee. So let's do export look, Hipster Manatee, This is indie film Manatee and the film Humanity. And this is zombie Manti. So in humanity. Okay, Now, if you want to import one of these look files that we just exported, you just goto creative. It's like your file and then go to browse and then select whichever look fall you'd like. If you look here, there's already a ton of presets which you can apply Dobie has just a plethora of of presets that you can live preview here. And if you're gonna import through here via basic correction, you need to export it as acute file. They're different. And again there's Ah, there's some presets here. And if you look back under the effects panel and you open up, there's a whole folder here of luminary presets that she could draw from here as well. And we're also gonna save screenshots of each so we can take a look at each one. So export frame you're just opposite Well, and again, just upload these to the project gallery. You can see what you're done and your custom look and what you named it hipster manatee. So there we go. Now, if we go to our desktop will see that we have our look files in our screenshots, which we can share in the Project gallery. I hope you enjoyed this course, and I'm looking forward to seeing what you came up with
