Video2brain - Color Correction in Premiere Pro
Analyze and Optimize the Color in Your Video. Color correction is one of those sets of skills many editors put off for another day — partly because they can make do with simple adjustments, and partly because many of the controls and options are a little alien. In this course, master editor Maxim Jago demystifies color correction and gives detailed explanations of the key controls, options, workflows, and best practices for color correction with Premiere Pro. After being introduced to the standard tools for measuring color and light, you’ll learn about the Fast Color Corrector, the Three-Way Color Corrector, and other color correction effects. You’ll also learn how to fix and match color with presets, as well as how to use After Effects and third-party plug-ins to do the few things that Premiere Pro can’t do. After competing this workshop you’ll have all the skills you need to “fix it in post.” In this workshop, you’ll learn how to use Premiere Pro's powerful tools to analyze and optimize the color in your video.
The Color Correction Challenge

The Fast Color Corrector
There are many color correction tools available in Premiere Pro, but the Fast Color Corrector is one you’ll probably use every day. It can achieve most of what you need in very few clicks.
