Automatic tone mapping lets you quickly drop new footage into your project that automatically adjusts to match the project’s colour, so you’re editing with great-looking footage from the start.

Ensure colour continuity from scene to scene.

Make basic corrections to exposure, white balance and contrast in a snap with Auto Colour. Preserve natural skin tones and automatically match colour between shots with Colour Match.

Use colour to set the mood.

Natural and consistent colour is just the beginning. Shape the mood of your project with tools to shift vibrance, saturation and tint. Isolate a specific colour, make precise changes to contrast or apply a vignette to fade the edges of a clip and draw attention to a focal point.

Take advantage of Lumetri looks to emulate different film stock and give your footage a timeless cinematic look. Also, use Look Up Tables (LUTs) to create and save your own customised colour gradients to give your clips a unique, consistent style.

Do even more with advanced colour tools.

Easily edit advanced settings with Lumetri Colour. Monitor colour and luminance levels with total accuracy with hardware-accelerated Lumetri scopes like Vectorscope, Histogram, Parade and Waveform.


What is the difference between colour correction and colour grading?

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

What's Lumetri?

Lumetri is the suite of professional-quality colour grading and colour correction tools that let you grade your footage directly on your editing timeline in Premiere Pro.

Can I import customised LUTs into Premiere Pro?

Yes, find out more about importing customised LUTs.

Should I colour 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 set-up to the next. Once you’ve corrected the colour so your video has an even, unified look, you can use colour more artistically.
