Adobe has released a beta version of its Premiere Pro video editing program that includes a new enhanced feature called Auto Tone for intelligent automatic color correction. The color adjustments made by Auto Tone automatically are reflected in the settings of the Basic Color Correction sliders at the top of the Lumetri panel.
The new Auto Tone feature is again found under the Simple Color menu item in the Lumetri Color menu in Premiere. Users can then easily fine-tune the results delivered by Auto Tone simply by making further changes via sliders (Temperature, Tint, Exposure, Contrast, Highlights, Shadows, White, Black and Saturation). The Auto Tune feature is designed to help new users become familiar with possible factory-corrected looks and the settings required to achieve them, and to provide experienced users with an initial starting point for further fine-tuning to speed up the process of color-correcting a video clip.

Adobe cautions, however, that Auto Tone should be used at this time to adjust the original source images and therefore before adding other effects that change color. In addition, Auto Tone is not currently compatible with logcoded video and is not compatible with log to Rec709 LUTs.
New Auto Tone feature in Premiere Pro.
After the successful end of the beta phase, Auto Tone will be integrated into the next release version of Premiere Pro and will then replace the current Auto Adjust button in the Lumetri panel to provide single-click automatic color correction with better and more transparent (since, unlike the previous Auto feature, all changes are reflected in the slider settings) results than before.
Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop in Beta Apps.
If you are a Premiere user and want to try out the new feature, you can now simply install the Premiere Pro beta version via Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop in the Beta Apps tab in parallel with the current version, which will not be replaced by the beta and can still be used.
