Adobe Speedgrade CS6
Another new application that recently landed in the SPL Digital Media Lab station #4 …. Adobe Speedgrade CS6! “What is Adobe Speedgrade???”, you ask. It’s a professional color correction and visual effects application with some major power! This app allows you to import some of the most common movie and image file formats including: GIF, JPEG, AVI, and MOV.
Whether it be a home iMovie project or a feature film entry for the Skokie In Motion Movie & Media Festival contest, run your final file through Speedgrade CS6 to give it that extra kick. And don’t worry about ruining your movie because Speedgrade saves non-destructively (your original files won’t be modified). I have to warn you though, the learning curve is pretty steep. However, while you’re in the library, you can visit Lynda.com and get up and running in no time.
Here are some more great features of Adobe Speedgrade CS6:
- Powerful layer-based grading
- Primary and secondary color correction
- Streamlined user experience
- Adobe tool and workflow integration
- Camera and color space matching
- Automatic scene detection
