How to Color Grade Your Footage With Adobe Premiere's Lumetri Tools

Most tutorials available for free on YouTube explaining how to color grade your footage are just ways to sell LUTs, presets, or to show you how to add teal and orange to your clips. Nate from Tutvid decided to make a more comprehensive video to help you get started with Adobe Premiere Lumetri tool so you can grade any of your videos the way you want.

Relying on LUTs and presets is great to cut post-production time. However, it’s also a good thing to learn how to do things manually so that when you need to adjust a video further, you know where to go and what to do. In the tutorial above, Nate will teach you just that – the basics of the Lumetri Color tool found in Adobe Premiere.

Not only will you learn how to create your own color grade, but you’ll also discover a great way to go through the process by creating a first edit that makes the footage neutral and then add a second one to set the tone and mood however you see fit. To help you make your work better and faster, Nate also shows you how to rely on the vectorscope and waveform.

This is awesome, presets make so many videos look the same. Learning how to do it in depth yourself the way you want it is essential to having your own unique style
