Today I’m going to talk about how to add an adjustment layer in Adobe Premiere Pro. Adding adjustment layers allows you to apply effects to multiple clips at a time. An adjustment layer is great for adding color, color correcting, or adding specific effects.
- To start adding an adjustment layer, click New Item from the bottom menu and select Adjustment Layer.
- The Video Settings dialog box will appear. You want to make sure your adjustment layer has the same specs as the footage in your timeline.
- The adjustment layer will show up in the left-hand box as new media.
- You can click and drag the adjustment layer onto a video timeline space. Make sure it’s above the video you are trying to apply effects to.
- For this tutorial, I’m going to walk you through applying color correction through Lumetri.
- Go to Color Settings and select the adjustment layer.
- Under Creative in the right-hand menu, select a lut you want to use.
- Back in the editing workspace, you will see that the adjustment layer is being applied to whatever is underneath that layer.
- You can hide and unhide the adjustment layer to see the original video and then the video with the effects applied.
- If the adjustment layer isn’t applied above the entire clip, it will disappear mid-clip.
- If you don’t want the effect applied during certain parts of a clip, you can cut it out at certain points.
- To make adjustment layers work, make sure you have your bin selected and not your timeline.
