have you ever wondered how color grading in cinematic films actually work how you can go from this shot to this well let's take a look at the very very basics on how to accomplish this but also understand of what's going on here hey what's up guys Geordie here for Seneca and welcome to this tutorial video the first thing I'm going to do inside Adobe Premiere Creative Cloud is create a new adjustment layer and I can do that with this button right here which says new item in the project panel and just say new adjustment layer like that guys that will bring up a pop-up box just press ok and it's being added to the project panel and I'm going to drag that above my clip in the timeline and also I'm going to make this the same length as my clip below that guys now what I'm going to do is I'm going to add effects to this layer and those effects will also be visible on the clip itself and that will give me more flexibility when it comes to making adjustments later on I think that's the reason why it's named adjustment layer alright guys I'm going to select this clip and the first thing that I'm going to do is head over to effects and I'm going to search for the fast color corrector can already see it right here I'm just going to search for it anyways fast and just going to scroll up a little bit there we go inside the color correction folder of our video effects fast color corrector and I'm just going to drag that over to my adjustment layer like that now the first thing I want to do is lift up the saturation guys so just scroll down within this effect and just boost up the saturation that will viv it to the colors way more now guys this step your really depends on what type of shot that you have as you can see in this image right here this was shot in a very very low saturation but maybe you have been filming with a camera that already boosted to the saturation then you can just skip this step right here I'm just going to do that because I want to have more saturation in my shot before I'm going to start with the actual color grading all right I'm going to scroll up just close this effect right here the fast color corrector and now we can actually start with the real cinematic film look correction and for that guys I'm going to search again and the effects panel right here for the three way color correction right here guys the three way color corrector I'm sorry just going to drag that over to my adjustment layer like that and this is the tool that is going to make the magic happen all right I'm going to scroll down guys and the first thing that we can see are these three wheels over here now what are they for well the first one here is for the shadows I'm going to bump some blue into the shadows and let's take a look at what happens in the image like that now we can assign a color with that and with the yellow little bar right here we can increase the saturation even more from that color which I'm just going to crease that to the maximum like bad guys and you can now see where these shadows are laying ass so right here the car the BMW this guy here has fans and a little bit here up the roof so those are the shadows all right let's head over to the mid-tones which is the next wheel over here I'm going to add some green in there also here I'm going to increase the saturation so that you can clearly see where the mid-tones are at all right so here are the mid-tones basically the roof up here the guy who is walking over there etc and then finally guys are the highlights which is right here and these are the white areas within your video clip and just also going to assign a color to here let's make it a little bit pink like that guys and now you can see where the highlights are laying ass alright guys now there's one problem that we see right here that we have to fix first before we can start the actual grading and that is the range of each level here the shadows really stop a very a bridge right here the same thing goes for the mid-tones and D highlights so that means when we are going to add a color in one of these channels we are going to see where it actually ends over here at the shadows and the highlights over here guys so the first thing that we want to do is make sure that these two channels actually fetter a little bit over each shutter so that it's not so obvious that this right here is the shadows the green is the mid-tones and the pink areas already highlights so I'm going to scroll down for that and over here we can find the tonal range definition and that's the place where we can change this guy's over here we can find the input for the highlights and when I'm going to increase this bar right here I'm going to change that feathering so just going to move that to the left and take a look at what the image does guys as you can see the highlights and the mid-tones are no little bit over each shutter and that's what we need guys and the same thing goes for the mid-tones over to the shadow so I'm also going to increase that and take a look at this area right here guys something very interesting is going on here look at that now this looks a lot better guys now we can work way better on the grading itself all right guys I'm going to scroll back up and I'm going to reset all these colors because of course this isn't really looking cinematic so just going to reset the shadows mid-tones and highlights like that now guys what you want to do is add some contrast into our clip because that's the thing what makes those Hollywood films look so great to contrast now of course we can't add too much contrast into it because we still want to see what kind of car that is but let's start with that guys I'm going to scroll down a little bit again and over here we can find the input levels and the output levels that means for the black right here when I'm going to increase that I'm going to add more blacks to the blacks there we go and what I'm going to use the output levels I'm going to remove some shadows from the blacks like that guys now to add contrast guys we're going to make the blacks deeper like this but make sure that you're not doing this too much guys we still want to see what's going on here the same thing for the highlights is going to increase the highlights like that again make sure it's not too much we are already blown out here so I'm not going to add too much of that so I'm going to already stop right here this is enough for this shot but you know still not enough for this Hollywood film that we're trying to create so guys let's take a look at those wheels right here because they can actually do some magic you know what contrast isn't only in the levels they can also be found within the colors because what is actually contrast contrast is black and white the two opposite things so when we are taking a look at these color wheels we can also find two opposite things the blue is over here and the yellow is over there or the Greens over here and the Pink's over there that is also contrast so guys let's create some contrast for shadows when you think about black things shadows we think about cold things you know when it is dark outside it's also cold during the night so we're going to add some blue into that blue gives us the feeling of coldness so I'm going to add some blue into the shadows and don't be afraid to add much of that because we are going to lift those blues anyways afterwards like that guys and then for the highlights guys we are going to add that yellow which is the opposite which is the contrast like that but also guys we're going to do that for the mid-tones so what we're actually doing guys is we're taking the mid-tones and the highlights together to add that yellow to it like this look at this guys that already looks a lot better now now guys for my clip right here in particular I still need to add more saturation to it because this was really shot pretty flat so I'm going to scroll down and right here you can find an option to increase your saturation if you want to and I'm just going to increase my master saturation until I am satisfied and apparently that's the maximum for this shot and there we go guys this is how we can create that blockbuster effect a great technique guys on how to add more contrast to your shots by just playing with the colors all right
