Beginners Color Grading Guide for Adobe Premiere Pro

Hello video creators! Welcome to Storysium.In today's Premiere Pro tutorial, we're going to look at Selective Color Grading. In Premiere Pro 13.0 and newer, there is a feature in the Lumetri Color Panel......that Adobe calls Selective Color Grading. This feature makes it easy to emphasize or subdue specific color ranges. And you could also use this to change the hue for a particular color range. Or you can increase or decrease the brightness of a selected color. You can desaturate shadows and saturate highlights if you want, and much more. Maybe this all sounds a bit complicated....but don't worry, I won't turn this one into a scientific, complex video! I will only show you the basics, so you know how to use them. Just stay tuned, and you'll see what I mean. Before we move over to Premiere... I want to tell you about the sponsor of this video, Envato Elements. It doesn't matter if you create videos for a living or just for a hobby. You need to know about Envato Elements. And that's because they offer millions of high-quality assets for your video projects. All within one single subscription. And this includes Stock Video......Music and Sound Effects......Fonts, Video Animation Templates, and much more. I've got my own paid subscription for a couple of years now......and I still visit their website multiple times a week for many of my projects. So, I can highly recommend you to give it a try, if you like to create videos. If you use my temporary discount link, in the video can try them out for a couple of dollars. But, of course, after you finish watching this tutorial. In Premiere, I've already got a clip on the timeline that we are going to use for the demo. I've got the clip selected, so now I can move over to the Lumetri Color Panel. In my layout, you can find this here. If you can't find this Panel, you might need to enable it first, here in the Window menu. In the Lumetri Color Panel, you will find the new controls in the "Curves" section. These Selective Color Grading tools are a new approach to the well-known Curves tools. This will give you a lot more control of your color grading, compared to previous versions.If you are versed in older versions of Premiere you might be familiar with this color wheel.This has been replaced with 5 new Curves Scopes.The first one is Hue vs Saturation.Next, we've got Hue vs Hue.Then we've got Hue vs Luma.Luma vs Saturation.And Saturation vs my editing work, these top 2 controls are definitely my favorite.But, we're going to look at each one of them in this tutorial.We're going to start with Hue vs Saturation and we're going to use the clip on the timeline as an example. Let's assume that we want to increase the saturation for the orange color......but we don't want to change anything else in the shot.We can use the Eyedropper tool, which you can enable here, to select the orange hue range.After that, 3 dots will appear here, on the horizontal hue line.You can now take this mid-point and then move this up to increase saturation......or move it down to decrease saturation.And, as you can see, we're now only mainly impacting the orange color and nothing else in the shot.And you can see this even better when I enable or disable the effect.You can also create the opposite, by moving the outer dots up or down. If you move them down, you can desaturate everything, except the orange hue range.And, if needed, you can also extend this range by moving the dots to the left or the right.Of course, this is an extreme example but this way you can really see the power of this control.Another example is this shot with flowers on a bright blue background.Let's say that we want to decrease the saturation of this blue bright color in the background.We can use the eyedropper tool to select the blue hue range and then lower the saturation by moving the mid-point down.But, as you can see, it still has a bit of a blue glow, especially here on the edges of the leaves.In this case, we can fix this by adding more points to the hue line by left-clicking on it and then expend the hue range.And now, with this extended range, everything blue in the frame has been desaturated.Next, we're going to look at "Hue vs Hue". Another powerful tool that I use a lot.In the first example, I'm going to change the yellow background.And to do this, I'm going to enable the eyedropper tool and then select the yellow background color.Hue vs Hue allows you to change the selected range into another hue, or color.If I select the middle dot, you can see the colored line on the vertical axis.So this means, when you move it up or down, you can change the selection into another hue.Of course, it does have its limitations but still, you can push this quite far, as you can see here.I've also used this "Hue vs Hue" control on the background video...
