Premiere Pro Tutorials

In this tutorial, Stan Arthur demonstrates color grading in the Lumetri color panel. Stan's unique method in this tutorial is using the Lumetri "Kodak 5205 Fuji 3510 (Adobe)" creative LUT as a finishing grade. Even at 40% intensity, this LUT gives the image more contrast and a much richer look. Check out Stan's previous Lumetri color tutorial featuring the RGB curves: Premiere Pro CC Lumetri Color Panel: Basic Color Correction Using Curves.

Motion Array, a stock library company, shared how to create a separate RGB effect using native Premiere Pro effects. Follow along with Motion Array co-founder, Tyler, as he shows how to use the "Color Balance (RGB)" effect on duplicate clips to create this awesome distortion effect. This is an easy way to add spice to your edit and is excellent alternative to purchasing 3rd party separate RGB effects.

Master trainer Larry Jordan shared this excerpt from a larger tutorial on Masks in Premiere Pro CC and Final Cut Pro X. In this segment he shows how to restrict the area affected by a chroma key effect by using an Opacity mask. This type of mask is sometimes called a garbage matte and it serves two purposes: it removes any unwanted objects in the frame (lights, rigging, stand-ins, etc.) and it eliminates any lighting inconsistency or falloff on your green screen, making for a much stronger key.
