In the previous post, we focused on the Hue/Saturation effect – but at the end, we briefly mentioned the Color Balance HLS effect which would seem to cover the same territory. Well, it actually has quite a different look. The following movie compares the two head-to-head:

Since we created those movies, a new effect appeared that we also like: Vibrance. Vibrance has a similar effect as increasing saturation, except that it never clips a color channel, meaning it keep a much better overall balance to the resulting colors with a less-obvious result. It’s a very simple effect, with just Vibrance and sliders and no tricks like selecting a specific color range to affect, but it’s useful when you need to bring just a little more life to an existing image or piece of footage.

This movie previously appeared in our Insight Into Effects course on Lynda.com/LinkedIn Learning. They’ve retired that course from their library, so we’re making them available publicly for free. Click here for the playlist of previous movies we’ve made available.
