How to smooth skin in videos.
There are several ways to achieve a smoother look in your videos. Try these options and see what works for you:
- Color correction. Color correcting tools help you bring out the natural underlying tones and adjust the balance of blacks, whites, and every color in between. Play with different color balances to see which ones work for flattering skin tones, and ensure consistent colors between scenes.
- Blurring. This feature is related to lines and borders. Blurring effects soften and reduce dramatic lines for a more even and less defined appearance.
- Contrast. Contrast tools affect the light and shadow of your subjects. By reducing darker shadows and the contrast of lights and darks, you get a more even, almost glowing appearance. See how light makes a difference in your edits.
