Adobe Premiere Pro Gets Lightroom-esqe Color Correction Upgrades

By Anthony Thurston on April 9th 2015

For those of you who are in the video realm, Adobe just made some major upgrades to Premiere Pro CC. The upgrade includes some impressive new color correction features that makes color correcting your footage almost as easy as using Lightroom!

Obviously, if you are doing any kind of serious color correction, you will want to use a dedicated program like Davinci Resolve or Adobe Speedgrade, but if you just need to make some quick adjustments, or color tweaks, these new upgrades appear to be quite sufficient.

The new color correction panel is called the ‘Lumetri Color┬áPanel’ and it gives you Lightroom-esqe controls for modifying the color and look of your footage right from the Premiere Pro CC itself.

As I am starting to do more and more video, I think that this is pretty awesome. One area of video that has always given me issues was color correction and modification and this looks to make it not only simpler and easier, but more familiar and with an interface that I am already very comfortable with from using Lightroom.

I am excited to get the update and try out these new features. Adobe says that it is ‘coming soon,’ but we don’t have any timeframe or hard date, unfortunately.

Do you shoot color correction on your videos? If so, what are your thoughts on these new updates coming soon to Premiere Pro? Leave a comment below and let us know what you think!

    Looks great. Whilst I’ve found speedgrade to be good there are going to be lots of projects where just using quick and basic corrections would be much more beneficial and I’ve never liked the current basic tools for those purposes. Especially under a deadline this new tool would be great. Also having the ability to apply these to an adjustment layer would really speed up the process.

    This looks great! Especially for small projects where speed and not absolute precision is required (I.E. my vacation videos that I still haven’t edited yet ;). I was skeptical, but I’ve been very impressed with the quality of the updates we are getting with our creative cloud membership!

    Six months ago, for me at least, this would have been the bomb-diggity and would have saved me about 40 hours of class time. However, since then, I took a basic color correction course and Speedgrade course through Lynda.com… I’ve been using Speedgrade as part of my workflow since the beginning of the year.

    This looks cool, perhaps a bit cookie-cutter and basic… but that’s without actually being able to play with it. It looks to be Speedgrade Lite, with templates. It really will depend on how editable the templates are to judge how useful it will be.
