Premiere Pro Auto Tone Beta

Auto Tone in Premiere Pro (Beta)

October 2021

Color gives stories their character and allows editors and content creators to develop their own cinematic style. Building on decades of Adobe color science, the Lumetri tools make color grading an integral part of video editing in Premiere Pro, with advanced controls that are approachable and fast.

Premiere Pro (Beta) introduces Auto Tone, a new technology for applying intelligent color corrections. Auto Tone adjustments are reflected in the Basic Correction sliders at the top of the Lumetri panel, and users can easily fine-tune the results. It acts as a guide to help new content creators become familiar with adjustments available to improve color in their video, or a jumping off point for experienced users to fast track their color correction.

When it is released, Auto Tone will replace the current Auto adjustment button in the Lumetri panel, providing more sophisticated color correction, with better results, with a single click.

How Auto Tone works

Unlike the previous Auto button, Auto Tone uses all of the Basic Corrections settings, providing more nuanced results.

Please note: As currently implemented, Auto Tone analyzes the unaltered source images and should be applied before adding other color effects. Auto Tone is not currently compatible with log-encoded video or log-to-Rec709 LUTs.
