It is only available for AE. If you want a version for both AE and PR, you need to upgrade to the PE version of Color Finesse. See their website.
That's what I was afraid of...
Hi there Kona,
I would recommend trying Colorista II: http://www.redgiantsoftware.com/products/all/magic-bullet-colorista-II/
I like it much more than Color Finesse, it performs quick and nice, and it's cheaper (when I see this right). Has some nice features too, very good secondary correction.
I haven't tried this, but I wonder if you could use the Dynamic link to correct in AE with Color Finesse which might show up on the Premiere timeline?
I'll give it a try. I've never been happy with First Light , but there are a lot of tutorials, as you know for Color Finesse and it has lots of presets. .
I can only have bad experiences with CF
stayed in time, has power but is the most clumsy out there.
many tools, but bad enough flow.
And as plug-in is to be opening shot for shot, I do not like.
if not, to correct a photo you like, you hang premiere ...
better colorist II, to be a plugin does not get any better ...
I use color finess all the time with my premiere pro projects. I link it with AE and it works great. I really love it. So, I dont think it's worth to pay more to get the PR version. I would like it of course but dynamic link works like a charm. And you can always go back, re-weak etc. The only thing is once it's dynamicaly linked, the clip is never as it was before. So in case of problems, I un-link the video from the sound, make a copy of the clip just above and remplace it with an after effect compo. So there is always the 'vrigin' clip in case of problems. But I think it's being over cautious from my part.
Thanks for the info. I must admit, I've watched a couple of tutorials on the dynamic link, and I'm still having trouble with it. Would you do me a favor and tell me your work flow for this process.
I was hoping I would be able to take just one trimmed clip I have placed in a PP sequence and transfer only that part of the clip to AE, use Color Finesse to work on it, and then when I go back to PP, the color correction would be present on the trimmed clip in the sequence.
Thanks in advance,
Right-click the item in the PP timeline and select Replace with After Effects Composition.
AE will open and prompt you for a name to save the new composition under. You will see that the PP timeline item will have opened in its own AE comp. Apply colour correction or any effect. Voila - that's all there is to it. Save it.
You will see the comp in PP Project Panel as a linked item with a green X.
Leave AE open if you intend to correct other PP items. They will all be added as comps to the same AE file name.
Like the prevous poster said, it's very simple to link.
I don't know if you used color finess yet but once you add the plug in on your clip, I prefer to open the advanced module. All the good tools are there. I like to use the histogram (I never use contrast and brightness tool), color vibrance and the curves. The white droper is very good to adjust quickly adjust your clip. I use the black one too sometimes but it's a hit and miss with it. I also use the slip screen preview so you can see the changes direclty.
