How To Correct Video Color

You can correct video color with video editing software like VideoStudio. Follow along with our tutorial below to learn the easiest way to correct video color. This is a tool in VideoStudio that can dramatically change your footage. If what you have filmed has come out leaning towards one color, you can bring it back down to neutral. Or you can correct the color and create a specific, intentional style. The choice is yours.

Corel VideoStudio lets you improve the appearance of a video or image clip by adjusting its current properties. Follow the steps below to brighten footage, saving time and preventing the need to reshoot using VideoStudio.

Tip: When shooting videos, it’s usually best to shoot RAW footage (an unprocessed file format that retains the details and colors as they were captured by the camera’s image sensor). RAW footage will give you the most room to adjust the colors the way you want.
