See how Tsering Norbu captures light and color from the things he sees around him, saves the results as a Look with Adobe Capture CC, and applies the Look to clips in After Effects, Premiere Pro, and Premiere Clip. (Watch, 2 min) And then read the tutorial.

Capture light and color from the things you see around you and save the results as a Look with Adobe Capture CC on your iPhone, iPad, or Android device. Then apply the Look to still images and videos in After Effects, Premiere Pro, and Premiere Clip.

 

(Optional) Copy Tsering Norbu's library to your Creative Cloud Files

If you want to re-create Tsering Norbu's Look for video, open Tsering Norbu's assets. Click Save to Creative Cloud to create a copy of the files in your own account. 

Once in your Creative Cloud Files, you can use these assets to create Looks with Capture CC. Then use your new custom Looks in After Effects, Premiere Pro or Premiere Clip.

Note: You need to be signed into your Creative Cloud account to save the library. Get an Adobe ID if you don't have one.  

step-1

Capture color and light

Launch Capture CC, tap Looks, then the + icon and point your device camera at an interesting scene or object. A cluster of 3D bubbles appears over your image showing the distribution of color and light you'll be capturing in the new Look. The larger the bubble, the more impact that color will have on your Look.

When you're ready, click the Capture button. 

Note: The screenshots in this tutorial show Adobe Capture CC on an iPhone. The user interface may vary between iPhone, iPad, and Android devices.

Pick a dominant color for your Look

Your new Look is applied to a sample image in the top half of the screen. 

Each bubble represents an individual saturation adjustment that will be applied to your video clips. Capture CC defaults to a dominant color to determine a midtone shift for the Look. 

Tap on any of the bubbles to change the midtone of the Look.
