Should have used an ND filter now how to correct in post edition

Sep 12, 2013 5:30 PM

00195.MTS.Still001 (Small).jpg

This is one frame of a video taken in Norway ( early morning ) recently. How do I correct the over exposure in Premiere Pro?

It would be easy in Photoshop.

As I am now back in Australia, it would be impossible to re-take this shot.

Unfortunately I have several sequences taken with this problem.


Any help would be appreciated.

    I know from reading on cloud programs, adobe speedgrade can color correct that.  Much wana go in that direction.  Doesnt look too bad, just a few filters and adjustments and you'll be just fine dude

    You might want to consider taking the video into Photoshop to use the new Camera Raw filter. Or, perhaps export to a series of still, adjust one, sync the others, and use the results in Premiere Pro as an image sequence.


    But first try the levels effect to see if it recovers any of the blown out area.

    Try adding Levels effect and drop the Whites and Mids. (RGBs)


    Do not lift the Blacks
