How do I stabilize brightness + contrast in Premiere Pro CC?
on Sep 9, 2017 at 12:13:49 pm

Hi!
So I have a video (https://youtu.be/9K3Hwk5G5_E) in which the brightness and contrast seem to change. I can see roughly when the changes occur with lumetri scopes open (https://youtu.be/3aKxpyXo7oE).
My question is -- can I 'stabilize' or maintain the brightness + contrast so the lumetri scope waves remain smooth and persistent.
This is very important footage and it needs to be perfect.
Any help is very much appreciated.
Elliot

You can either keyframe it or use the Miracle plugin.

If this is the requirement then you'd probably be better off paying a professional colorist to go through your project.

HA! Good one, Tero! 😉

Seriously, have you looked into RE:Vision Effects DE:Flicker? It sounds like it could do the job if you really don't want to hire a professional colorist, or use the Miracle plugin, which can be buggy ;-)

This is what auto exposure do to you. Next time try to shoot with auto off ☺

But I hear you, sometimes you don't have the necessary equipment or you see something and need to shoot fast on the go.

luckily for you I have tried DE:Flicker for this exact situation you are experiencing, and almost all of the time, it does work. Although, it can bring color artifacts from balancing it, depending the quality of the footage. There's also a technique similar in After Effect but can't remember the Adobe own plugin (often used for timelapse montage).

If it doesn't work, the only tip I can tell you, is to use keyframed Lumetri and equalize with the Lumetries scopes. It can be done quick when you know how.

Cheers
