Lightroom Classic Can Adjust Tone and Color of Video


Lightroom Classic can be used to edit your video clips. Editing video is not the first thing that comes to mind when using Lightroom. It is its advanced digital image management capabilities and ever expanding photo editing features.

It can also be used to trim your video, as well as removing sections in the middle of the clip.

The tone and color editing features are under Quick Develop in the Library module.

Timeline editing tools are also readily accessible. Using these tools along with those in the Slide Show module, you can assemble a multimedia presentation with simple transitions, text overlays, and background music, all within Lightroom Classic.

I used Lightroom Classic to edit the color and tone of the video I shot recently at the beach from my Mavic Pro drone. I find that it often works better for me. I did choose to use PRE 2020 to do the timeline trimming, since it has a Smart Trim tool that I often use to get started.  For this video, I also chose PRE 2020 to add the title text.

But the fact remains, I could have stayed in Lightroom Classic to do the entire project, including producing the final 1920x1080p video.

The link below shows my final video. By the way, to see the best quality, switch YouTube options to play 1080p HD. Its default is 720p HD.

I plan to use Lightroom Classic more in the future to edit the tone and color of my videos.
