In this video tutorial independent filmmaker and X-Rite Coloratti Ollie Kenchington will help you understand how to use the ColorChecker Video charts to improve the quality of your rushes drastically, getting ideal balance and color consistency, as well as matching footage from multiple cameras in Adobe Premiere Pro.
Ollie starts by giving tips on how to White Balance onset using the X-Rite charts. Next, Ollie will discuss precisely how to use and where to place the focusing and color charts in your scene
Finally, he will move into Adobe Premiere Pro to discuss how to get perfect skin tones, a balanced image, and excellent saturation.

X-Rite ColorChecker Video can reduce your post production edit time by hours. When you have a video standard in each clip you can match cameras, correct different lighting conditions to an ideal target, so that when you apply your color grading or color “look” for your film, you’re applying that effect to clips that are already matched to each other.
