How to Color Match Video Footage From Two Different Cameras Using Premiere Pro

Matching the colors between two different cameras takes a nuanced eye and precision. This helpful video will give you some great tips and techniques for color matching video footage shot on two different cameras using Premiere Pro. 

Coming to you from Shutterstock Tutorials, this great video will show you how to color match video footage that was shot on two different cameras in Premiere Pro. It's especially common for filmmakers to own multiple cameras (even from different brands) due to different purposes or price points, and very often, both will be used on the same project. However, most cameras render colors differently, and this can create issues in post-processing if you're not careful. It's particular important to match the colors, as even casual viewers will quickly pick up on such an incongruity, and it can be very jarring and detract from the experience while also making your work look unprofessional. Luckily, modern cameras have made this process a bit easier with the inclusion of log profiles. Check out the video above for the full rundown on the process.
