ya know…taking nothing away from Lydia Highly Suspect, which I enjoyed, this BTS makes me feel a lot of people were taking themselves way too seriously. and…wow…they were able to balance the pressure in the housing in a pool…amazing.
I've shot hours of UW footage. And, taking nothing away from the technical challenges, I am mostly impressed by Marina Kazankova.
hmm… this seems like just trying "stuff" with no real idea of what it's going to do. it's not what I want to do when I'm grading or color correcting.
I'm trying to learn SpeedGrade better - I still really like using ACR in Photoshop CC for many situations.
I've struggled with color correction/grading in Premiere and SpeedGrade (using CC2014 - I'm new to these and have used just a little).
I understand and like ACR. I've been using it in Photoshop CC2014 to color correct and tweak my GH4 footage and so far like the results a lot. My advice, unless you have a wicked fast computer, is to trim your clips fairly tight in Photoshop before going to ACR. It both taxes computing power and takes a long time to export so only export what you need + a few seconds buffer on either end. I then just tighten up the corrected clips in Premiere CC2014. Haven't noticed any flickering so far.
I'd love to find a way to correct only in Premiere, but at my level of knowledge and experience this is working. And, most importantly, the end result is footage that looks gorgeous (to me).
