Colour Matching and Custom White Balance for Video

As an aspiring video editor, you may be eager to learn how to use colour matching and custom white balance to improve your editing skills. Colour arrangement refers to the tone and temperature of the light you are capturing using a certain colour balance setting in your camera. It is the process of determining the best shade (or hue) of shades to use in your video footage. This is accomplished using shade correction, but editors can also rely on software to help them make these changes. 

White balance refers to the brightness and colour of a white subject. Both are essential for creating the highest quality video, so it’s good to understand both concepts in depth.

Since varying optical sources emit different shades of light, mixing them can produce inaccurate results. For example, if your camera is set to cloudy white balance, the colour temperature of the image will be adjusted based on the light source, resulting in blue or purple skies. As a result, the shade must be appropriate for the environment, and software such as Lightroom can assist you in this regard.

Colour Matching and Custom White Balance: How do you do it?

Colour coordination and custom White Balance are useful features if you shoot video with a DSLR and more so when you prefer to shoot video in RAW format.

Hue arrangement allows you to change the colour temperature of the output video, or the colour of a light source, without changing the contrast. If you want to match the colour calibration of sunlight to incandescent lights, for example, you would use this feature to change the colorant of the video to match the colour temperature of the light source.

White balance is the process of adjusting the tone of the light in a photograph. It is accomplished by balancing the brightness of the subject and the studio lights in order to achieve neutral and appropriate colours. It enables you to manually adjust the overall colour mixture of your video. Think of it as a way of manually adjusting the brightness on your digital camera, except here the outcome is accomplished by manipulating the light sources in the setting.

A shade match involves a number of steps. The custom balance of white tone is an important step to understand. Many people are perplexed by this, but the custom colour adjustment is the process of properly adjusting your camera’s white balance and lighting to match the brightness and contrast of the scene you will be photographing. This is important for post-production editing because the lighting in the scene should match the lighting in your post-production environment.

Before You Work on Colour Matching and Custom White Balance…

Colour matching refers to the correction of the white colour of a video camera’s image, while custom neutral balance refers to the correction of the temperature of various shades. When you use a camera, the camera’s white balance is automatically corrected to match the temperature of the light it’s shooting in. 

For example, the camera’s balance is usually corrected to get a warmer image when shooting under fluorescent lighting. When shooting outside, however, the brightness is allegedly coming from a more bluish-white source, so the camera’s grey balance should be corrected to produce an image that is closer to that. 

This can be more difficult in reality than it appears. That is because different cameras have different colour responses, which in turn can be influenced by luminosity, the filming environment, and the camera’s settings. As a result, the way colours appear on one camera will vary from the output of another camera.

When filming in a location, the arrangement of colour can be a complicated concept to master. When you are recording video or still photography in the field, the last thing you want is for skin tones to be off. That’s because the next person viewing your work will be using the same camera, photo brightness, and editing software as you. Therefore, colour correction is critical when it comes to video. It must be as accurate as possible when it concerns shades. It will require a lot of practice to master the craft, even when you shoot in a studio.
