Post Processing Software for Video
« on: February 09, 2014, 09:16:16 PM »
Hi.

I've been a stills photography guy for practically all my life and I'm interested on dipping my toes on videography (not serious, but enough to say I can do that, too, and produce some decent videos).

Are there any good post processing software for videos that anyone can suggest? Something just like Lightroom for stills where exposure, colors, and sharpness, can be tweaked.

Thanks!

Any decent video editing app should be able to do color processing.

Video editing software (iMovie, Final Cut Pro, Premiere, etc) will usually have some color grading capabilities built in, and then if you want to get super serious, there is dedicated software just for color grading (DaVinci Resolve, Speed Grade, etc).

Triggyman, take a look at Adobe Premiere Elements version 12. It's a scaled down version of Premiere which is a pretty robust application for someone just learning. I think you'll find Elements to work well as you learn. It's also only $99 US and I don't believe it's in the subscription model that Adobe has for it's flagship products either.

Thanks for all the responses so far - I was looking for names I can look at and this is very a good start. There was some I found that cost upwards up to $999 or more and I'm sure that's for very serious videographers - not for me.  :)

I forgot to mention I use Windows 7.
