Is there an easy way to do color correction in Adobe Premiere Pro CC? Just some sort of preset that just works?

Is there an easy way to do color correction in Adobe Premiere Pro CC? Just some sort of preset that just works? I don't want to spend a ton of time on it.

look up the Lumetri colour panel in Premiere CC. the adjustments are treated as an effects layer, so you can copy, save presets, and even chain multiple adjustments.

also look up automatic matching if you need to get multiple clips to look the same before you apply another lumetri filter.

 

if you want predefined presets, go google for a few sites who have effect presets for lumetri. I personally do my own since I don't have a way of ensuring consistent colour recording yet ._.

No, because, as the name implies, color correction is a CORRECTION to the flaws of each individual clip.

 

While there ARE a ton of "presets" out there, none of them are perfect for your specific clips.

 

So you have the option to either flick through a bunch of presets until you land on the least objectionable one, OR make the adjustments that your clip needs. 

 

My suggestion, if you want to minimise the amount of time spent doing color work in post, is to make sure you're nailing your exposures on set, and  carefully watch the color cast on skin tones.
