Need to change the look of your video or photo? Use the Color Adjustment tool. This tool lets you change the brightness, contrast, and saturation of your selected media with individual sliders. In addition, there are adjustment dials available exclusively to KineMaster Premium subscribers!
Brightness – Changes the overall brightness of the image. This offsets the RGB (Red, Green and Blue) components by some amount. In other words, a fixed value (determined by the slider position) is added to all three color components for each pixel. Values greater than 0 approach white, and less than 0 approach black.
Contrast – Changes the overall contrast of the image by moving the bright and dark components further apart (for settings greater than zero) or closer together (for settings less than zero).
Saturation – Changes the intensity of the color without affecting the luminance. Values greater than 0 cause colors to become more intense, and values less than 0 approach grayscale.
KineMaster Premium subscribers get even more ways to adjust the way a video looks. These color adjustment options are available exclusively for subscribers:
Vibrance – Saturates colors that are not completely saturated, but leaves highly saturated colors at the value they are. Dragging the slider all the way to the right will increase the overall saturation of your media, and dragging to the left will desaturate it.
Temperature – Color temperature determines how “warm” or “cool” your media appears. Dragging the slider all the way to the right will increase the yellows, oranges, and reds. Moving it to the left will increase the greens, blues, and purples.
Highlights – This will increase (to the right) or decrease (to the left) the white values of your brightest areas.
Shadows – The opposite of highlights. This will increase (to the right) or decrease (to the left) the black values of your darkest areas.
Gain – This increases (to the right) or decreases (to the left) the overall exposure of your media. Higher values increase the brightness of both the bright and dark areas in your media. Lower values decrease the brightness of your media.
Gamma – Gamma will change the bright and dark areas of your media simultaneously. Increasing the gamma will darken your media. Decreasing it will brighten it.
Lift – Lift increases (to the right) or decreases (to the left) the brightness of your media. Used together with the Gamma slider, you can rebalance the white point in your media.
Hue – Hue will slide each color value for each pixel in your media across the spectrum.
