Learn how to use the Lumetri scopes feature in Premiere Pro to monitor color in an image.
The Lumetri Scopes panel (Window > Lumetri Scopes) displays a set of resizable built-in video scopes: Vectorscopes, Histogram, Parade, and Waveform. These scopes help you evaluate and color-correct your clips. To display a scope, right-click in the Lumetri Scopes panel and select a scope from the drop-down list.
You can also select 8-bit, 10-bit, float, or HDR in the drop-down list on the lower-right corner of the Lumetri Scopes panel depending on the nature of the scopes that you want to analyze. For example, if you select HDR, the scopes change to high dynamic range data, with the scope scale showing a range between 0-10000 Nits.
Select Clamp Signal if you want to clip any signal over 100 IRE or below 0 IRE that is displayed in the scopes. Clamp signal only impacts output in the Lumetri Scopes window. Clamping the scope does not impact the frame being rendered on timeline or export output.
At any given point, you can display all the scopes in the Lumetri Scopes panel. Simply right-click the Lumetri Scopes panel, and select Presets > All Scopes RGB or All Scopes YUV/YC.
A vectorscope is a circular graph the monitors the color information of an image. It measures saturation outward from the center and measures hue in a circular pattern.
Premiere offers two different flavors of the vectorscope: YUV and HLS (Hue, Lightness, and Saturation).
You can select from the following available waveform scopes:
