Color Presets in Premiere Pro?

Color Presets in Premiere Pro?


Adobe Premiere Pro is one of the most powerful video editing programs out there. With it, you can manage your videos just as effectively as the professionals. Once you have cut and organized your clips, it is time to think about color correction. This is one of the trickier processes in bringing a video project to completion, but to have everything look as crisp and clear as possible, it is necessary. Alternatively, perhaps you want to apply some color effects to really bring out a certain quality or set the mood properly. There is a lot you can accomplish, simply by tweaking the colors of your video. Luckily, Premiere Pro supports a huge library of color presets, making it easier than ever to complete the color correction step in video editing.

Installing Premiere Pro Color Presets


If you want to use color presets, you must first install them in Premiere Pro. This may sound like a complicated process, but it is actually quite simple. First, browse the internet to find the presets that you want to use. The name of preset files should end with ".prfpset" It is best to download more than you think you need, so you have some options to choose from. Once they are downloaded, open up Premier Pro. Click on the "Effects" tab, select "Import Presets," and then select all the presets that you downloaded. It is that simple. You should see all of them appear within Premier Pro in just a few moments.


Using Color Presets


Once you have all your Premiere Pro color presets in the program, it is time to start applying them to clips. This process is even simpler than importing presets. All you have to do is open the library of presets in the "Effect" tab and drag the desired preset to the clip. It should apply to the clip instantly. Most effects have additional settings, which you can adjust further. Additionally, if you make adjustments to a preset, you can copy it to other clips rather than trying to recreate those settings manually. To do this, you will actually save the clip properties as a new preset, which will go into the library. Then you can apply it to any other clip just like any other preset. 


Premiere Pro is designed to be accessible and versatile, but it still takes a lot to get everything out of the program as possible. Shutterstock is here to help you become a pro at Adobe Premiere Pro.
