Color Correction in After Effects

another set of effects. I want to show you are all of the color correction effects here. I have this video clip that you have access to. Its called travelers and under color correction in the effects and presets window you see all kinds of different ones. Now these can do everything from adjusting the exposure, the color balance, the white balance, the saturation. But there is one that is sort of a catch all that does all of this and that's called the loo metric color effect. So take that and drop it onto one of your video clips. If you've used adobe premiere pro, this is basically the same thing. So you have your basic corrections which include white balance and your tone which is affecting exposure. So if I want to make this warm, nice video clip look cool. I would take my temperature and drag it to the left. So now if I drag it to the left I can make this look sort of dreary and cold rather than that nice warm look from before. Undertone, you can adjust the exposure of the clip. Now...

, this clip is only a 7:20 p clip. It's a compressed clips. It's not going to work as well as if you have a raw file that you're editing yourself. But you can adjust your contrast here if you want it super un contrasted or the individual parts of your image. So just the highlights, you can do that to bring down the highlights to bring back some of that information in the distance. Or if we want to adjust the blacks bring up those blacks get that nice flat look that people really like now or drop down the blacks to get it more contrast. E under creative There are several looks. So if you drop down looks you can go through all of these in it kind of applies a specific type of look. S. L. A noire is a nice sort of film noir look, turn it on and off with this active button. You also have under creative sharpening, vibrant saturation. So if we want to make it black and white here, we can if we want to add more color to it, we can there. And I'm just going to jump quickly to the vignette. Here's a quick way to add a vignette to a clip. So earlier we learned about using a solid layer to create a vignette which applies to your entire composition. This vignette will just be applied to the individual layer. But hey, if you're just editing a single video, you can do that with the blue metric color effect. With the amount changed the midpoint changed the feathering. If you want to be harder or softer, I don't do much color correction in after effects to be honest, I do most of mine in premiere pro which if you have after effects are probably a creative cloud user, which means you have access to premiere Pro and with the loo metric color effect, you have a great lou metric color panel in premiere Pro that makes it easier to use all of these effects. And I'll link to editorial that shows you how to use that if you are curious on how to use all the other options within the loo metric color panel, such as curves, color wheels, H Sl secondary. But for now, all I want you to really realize is that if you want to make basic corrections to a clip, the blue metric color effect is a great one to use. Thanks so much for watching. If you have more questions about color correction, please let me know and like I said, I'll be linking to some more resources to expand upon this later on in this section.
