How to Color Correct Multiple Videos Clips | CyberLink PowerDirector 18


– It’s time to copy some colors! You can’t copy this though,
this is all original. (electronic buzzing) – Hey PowerDirector peeps! It’s Saturday, so it’s
time for me to break down some PowerDirector desktop love for you. And today I’m gonna show you
how to copy color correction into multiple clips
using PowerDirector 18. If you’ve been wondering how
to copy your color correction from one clip to another, I want you to put #colorcorrection in the comment section below. Here we are in PowerDirector 18. Applying color correction
to multiple clips allows you to speed up your workflow and increases your productivity
by leaps and bounds! So in this video, I’m gonna show you how to apply color
correction to multiple clips using PowerDirector and ColorDirector. Let’s get color-rific! As you can see, I have
multiple clips in the timeline. I wanna make the first clip
on track one a bit darker. And guess what? I want the other clips on that same track to be darker as well. So what I’m gonna do is I’m gonna go ahead and left click on the clip. Then I’m gonna go to Fix/Enhance. And then I’m gonna go to ColorDirector. If you don’t have
ColorDirector, you can buy it from CyberLink, you can
get their Director Suite which comes with a
bunch of different tools like ColorDirector, AudioDirector,
all of that goodness. Check it out, pick it up if you need to. Now, I am currently on the Manual tab. So if you’re not on the Manual tab, make sure that you click on the Manual tab and also make sure you’re
set to the Adjustment tab at the top, all right? Now, you can do your
adjustments whatever you want. It doesn’t really matter, for
this I’m just going to make some adjustments here to the RGB channel, make it a bit darker. I like how that looks right
there, so I’m good to go. Now what I’m gonna do
next is I’m gonna go ahead and click on Back to go
back to PowerDirector. And now you can see that
the adjustment has been made to this clip. If I uncheck this little arrow here, you can see that how it looks
without the changes I made, and that’s how it looks
with the changes that I made in ColorDirector. Now, I want this to be applied
to these other two clips on the track behind it as well. So what I need to do is
click on Apply to All. Now as you can see right
now, there’s no icon here showing that an effect
or anything was added. But once I click on Apply to All, you can see that the effect was added. So if I go ahead and place my
play head over this clip now, and I uncheck the Color Preset, there’s how it looked before, and there’s how it looks
now with the changes that I made to the first clip
now applied to this clip. Same thing here, I can look at this clip and I can see the before and after. So now I have the same color adjustments that I made to the first clip
applied to all the other clips on this track. But, let’s say that I want
to apply color correction to clips on multiple tracks. Well, you know I gotta
show you how to do that! But, before we do that, I
wanna remind you to subscribe to PowerDirector University
to see great tips and tricks just like this every Saturday. If you decide to subscribe, don’t forget to click on the bell to get notifications every time I upload content to YouTube, and don’t forget to follow PDU Tutorials on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for even more PowerDirector love. Now, let’s get back to
the breathtaking tutorial! So let’s say I want to
make some adjustments, some color adjustments to this clip here, and then I wanna apply
those same adjustments to some of the other clips
on some different tracks. So I’m gonna go ahead and left
click to select this clip, and I’m gonna go to Fix/Enhance. And I’m gonna go to ColorDirector. Now once again, I’m on the Adjustment tab under the Manual tab as well, and I’m just gonna go back to the RGB and I’m going to shift
it in the other direction because this one’s kinda dark. So let’s brighten it up a bit. I think that’s pretty good there. Now, what we wanna do now is actually save the
adjustment as a preset. If we save it as a preset, we
can add it to multiple clips. So, let’s go head and click on Create. And we’re gonna choose Preset. You can give it a name. And then we’ll click on Save. Now that it’s saved, we can
go ahead and click on Back. And we can see here that
the preset that we saved named Brighter is now available here and it has already been
applied to this clip. So if I uncheck this, that’s how it looked before, and that’s how it looks with
the changes that I applied. But now I wanna apply these same changes to more clips on the timeline. So I could just left
click on another clip, hold down my control key,
left click on another clip, hold down my control key and
left click on another clip, and now I have selected multiple clips, but not all of the clips. So now, I’m still under
Fix/Enhance, I never changed that. Now if I go ahead and click
on Color Presets and LUTs, now I can select the same
preset that I created for the first clip called Brighter. And if I select that, now you see that the icon
is under all of these clips and you can see how that clip got brighter when I went ahead and selected it. So now if I just select
the one clip, I uncheck it, that’s how it looked before, and that’s how it looks with
the brighter color adjustments that I made. I can do the same thing with this clip. Look at this one. And you pretty much get the picture. That’s how you apply color
correction to multiple clips with PowerDirector 18. If you decide that you
like PowerDirector 18 and you wanna buy or
upgrade to the software or purchase the 365 annual subscription, I’ll leave you some links
