Let’s Edit with Media Composer – Lesson 7 – Color Encoding

Don’t forget to like, subscribe and share this video!

In this lesson, we’re continuing our look at each clips Source Settings by talking about Color Encoding, Media Composer’s fancy way of saying LUT’s.

The Color Encoding window is just that. A way to add LUT’s to your footage to convert them from the acquisition color space, to the working color space (REC709).

We also discuss how to install your own custom Technical or Creative LUT’s, and we also dive head first into the Linked Plug-ins window, where you can adjust the parameters of RAW clips (RED, Blackmagic Design) in Media Composer. Enjoy!
