    Default Grading in Premiere

    Hi,

    I'm kind of new to using Premiere, I've only been using it for about 3 months and I was wondering if you can do grading on it. I know you can add tints etc but I was watching the extra DVD for LOTR where there was a guy grading all the shots and it looked great. I was just wondering if you could do anything like that in Premiere. Thanks in advance for any help and replies.

    The only way I can describe it is colour manipulation of a shot. Such as when you add deinterlacing to a shot it makes it look more movie like somehow. On the DVD when the guy is grading he is making shots different colours and lighting subjects in the shot like when one guy is talking and he wants your antention on him he makes the guys face a little bit lighter in colour than the guy he's talking to. Also chaning the colour of forests etc, making them look greener etc. Hope that helped.

    If you have a legit copy of Pro 1.5, you can get some free magic bullet effects which add movie look filters.

    Yeah - I use magic bullets a lot, and they work very well. Downside is they take AGES (and I do mean AGES) to render. You can also upgrade for about 25 to get a stack more. Works a treat on the whole image, but I'm not so sure you can specifically pick out (for example) someones face and lighten it. You could do another video track of a white blob on a black background, match it up to the position of the face on the other track, and make it almost transparent....? Might work....?! Who knows!
