Color Grade with KineMaster Filters
Color grading can look difficult, but KineMaster does the work for you. By using preset filters, KineMaster can help you color grade your videos and photos on your phone without needing expensive, time-consuming software. Simply tap to apply a filter to your video if you are not comfortable with adjusting manually. You can apply the same filter to all of the media in your video to instantly accomplish a color grading effect.
Color Grade with KineMaster’s Adjustment Tool
For those who want more control over the look of their film, we recommend the Adjustment tool. This tool allows you to manually color grade your videos. Select the media you would like to color grade, scroll down on the menu panel and select Adjustment. Here you can go through each of the options and adjust by using the slider. You have the option to Apply to All or if you want to start over again hit the Reset button.
Color Grade with KineMaster Effects
KineMaster offers another option to color grade your videos: Effects! To apply an effect to your video, open the KineMaster Asset Store. Under Effects, go to the Color option and you will find various effects that can be used to help you color grade your video! We recommend using Auto HDR.
This effect allows you to instantly brighten your footage leaving you with a vibrant video. This is the easiest and fastest way to color grade your videos, saving you time in the editing process!
Use a Background Color as a Filter
Another simple way to apply a color grade to your videos is using a background color. To do this, add a solid color layer to your KineMaster video. Under Blending, change the opacity and play with each blending mode to find the one that fits with the vibe of your video!
Take it a step further by using the Adjustment panel for your solid color layer to adjust the hue by using the sliding tool.
