Matching Sony and Canon color in Premiere Pro Cs5

Good morning! I made the big mistake of filming with 2 different types of cameras and am trying to fix in editing. Is there a way to get Canon EOS 7D 1080 to match up to Sony AX100 1080 video? The Sony is darker and has a blue tint. The Canon DSLRs is crystal clear. What is the best way to either brighten and clear the blue tint from the Sony footage or darken and put a blue tint to the Canon footage in Premiere Pro (would prefer the first - but right now would accept either)? Be as specific as possible - as I have never used different cameras before and have not worked with color correction in the past. Thanks for any help you can provide - I greatly appreciate it.

You need to use the Lumetri color control panel to match the shots to each other. This is a pretty standard color correction task.

Oh darn. I re-read the thread title - CS5. Sorry, but that's ancient. However, the principles in Lumetri can be applied to the color correction tools in CS5.

Thanks for the responses! I was watching the videos and thought - this looks way too easy - ha. Yes Cs5 is old - my budget is extremely small (just a guy trying to help the local music scene out). I'll try to see how I can try to get something similar out of Cs5 (if anyone knows let me know). Maybe it is time I look into saving some money and trying to get a more updated version.

I appreciate the insights - I learn something new every time. Thanks.

Nick

Understood. No slight intended. This might help:

anks - and no slight taken. I know it is ancient. When I find something I like I usually stick with it. I had not seen how nice the 2015 version was. Makes me hungry again and want to improve!

I appreciate all your help. It means a lot that you are willing to help a someone you don't know. Thanks again.

if you're going for perfect matching, you will want to grade with the worse camera being the master because you can't make its latitude or lens quality any better.

you can go old school without lumetri with fast color corrector and RGB curves.

you can use fast color corrector first to get basic black point, white point, contrast, saturation.

then finish off any strange variable tints with RGB curves effect if needed.

Thanks for the advice (about using worst camera). I'll check into the link you sent too. That looks like it has some good info for me to check out.

Thanks,
Nick

Quick follow up - if I want to base all off the worst camera (Sony) - how do you dumb down the DSLR? Color correct seems to want to make everything better. Since the Canon is so clear - should I try to raise the blacks and Grays to make it not as bright and clear? Sorry if this is a dumb question - but most tutorials show how to improve the video.

Thanks,
Nick

yes, less latitude means less dynamic range. darks and whites will hit a 'wall' faster. possibly more curves contrast. since that version didn't have scopes yet, you will have to eyeball it. maybe color range picker or something similar might help. greys are gamma, you do that last, after black point and white point.
