What is the difference between color correction and color grading?

Color correction consists of correcting issues and balancing shots, so they look natural and unified. Color grading consists of adjusting color and contrast to serve a creative or stylistic choice.

Can I import custom LUTs into Premiere Pro?

Yes, find out more about importing custom LUTs.

Should I color correct videos before editing?

Yes. Even if you use the same cameras and lights for every shot of your project, when you get to post-production you might find that your hue, saturation, and brightness have changed from one camera setup to the next. Once you’ve corrected the color so your video has an even, unified look, you can use color more artistically.
