You can reset Basic or Advanced controls independently of one another by clicking the respective Reset button.
Save custom looks
After adjusting Basic or Advanced controls in the Edit tab of the Color panel, you can save your new custom look.
- Under More Options (three dots), choose Create Preset. Give your new preset a name, and choose Save. The new preset is available under Your Presets at the bottom of the Presets tab in the Color panel.
Apply your saved preset to another clip
- To apply your new preset, select a different clip in the sequence, and then click on the new preset under Your Presets at the bottom of the Presets tab in the Color panel.
Tip: The Saturation control boosts or decreases color for the entire shot, but Vibrance adjusts color intensity while protecting skin tones. Try using Vibrance instead of Saturation when adjusting color for close-up shots of human faces.
