In 2015, Adobe stopped updating its purchased Speedgrade color grading system and began integrating it with Premiere and After Effects. The technology can now be found in the so-called Lumetri panels.
In fact, these cutters help directors and editors to control and change the colors of a project with very simple means. However, the possibilities of the Lumetri panels for real color grading do not go far enough, or their handling is inferior to a classic grading workflow in the eyes of many users.
The new workflow rather tries to imitate the proven Light Room tools in Premiere, so that even users who are not professional colorists can quickly achieve respectable results with just a few sliders and LUTs. However, videos are not photos and color correction is usually only the first step in a professional grading workflow.
Bilal Alsurri comes to the conclusion in his medium article that the concept of integration has failed and drives many users with real grading needs to Blackmagic's DaVinci Resolve.
As a loyal Premiere fan, he has therefore developed a virtual prototype to illustrate how a professional grading system could fit into the Creative Cloud universe. He describes the app named Lumetri CC in great detail with lots of screenshots and is likely to meet with open ears among many users.
Definitely a concept worth discussing, nice to read, which Adobe could well stand in contrast to Resolve due to the distributed program approach of the Creative Cloud...
