Ideally for white balance, you want the white mass to be in the center of the Vectorscope YUV graph. You can adjust the white balance automatically or manually.
To adjust White Balance:
- If you have something white in frame to use as a reference, use the eye dropper to have Adobe Premier Pro automatically adjust the white balance.
- If you do not have a white reference point, drag the "Temperature" slider to adjust the white balance.
- Refer back to the Vectorscope to determine how to adjust the slider to move the white mass toward the center of the graph.
The Tone is controlled by the Exposure, Contrast, Highlights, Shadows, Blacks and Whites sliders. The Waveform represents the exposure and all of the tones in the frame. The Highlights, Shadows, Blacks and Whites all work together. You will see their effect on each other in the Waveform.
To adjust Tone:
- Adjust each of the sliders.
- Refer to the Waveform (Luma) to see how adjusting each slider impacts the graph.
If you want to start over and restore the original video, select "Reset" to reset all of the tone settings.
Once you have completed your color correction, compare it to your original. To switch between the before and after, uncheck "Basic Correction."
