How to Make Secondary Color Corrections in Adobe Premiere

Scroll to top
Read Time: 2 mins

Adobe Premiere features built-in tools that help you color correct your video. Virtually every piece of video footage will need some amount of color correction, whether that is to naturally color balance or a creative effect you want to apply to the color rendering of the image.

Even if you're a master of color correction, you might find yourself with complex lighting to correct for. Imagine incandescent lighting from a warm bulb combined with cool light coming from the windows, for example.

In the lesson below, you'll see an example of using secondary color correction to fix a scenario just like this. In the video lesson above, you'll learn to use the secondary color correction panel to control for mixed lighting.
