Create a summer vibe
Combine filters using layers
We applied a Glow filter to create a warmer contrasting light effect. By popping the filtered clip on a cutaway layer we were able to reduce its Opacity. This made the over-the-top filter effect look more subtle.
On a cold, overcast day an unprocessed clip’s colours may look drab and a little blue. Due to clouds there may not be much contrast, leading to flat tones. Fortunately, we can warm up colours, boost saturation and increase contrast.
The Colour correction icon gives you access to tools that manually warm up (or cool down) colours. You can also increase contrast and boost saturation for more vibrant, eye-catching colours.
Skin Tone Balance
The Skin Tone Balance tool gives you an eyedropper that lets you sample skin tones. If they are too cool due to an incorrect in-camera white balance setting then it will instantly warm up the colours, creating a less wintery look.
Knowledge base Colour balance
To a camera, indoor light appears warm and orange, while outdoor light can be cold and blue. Your camera can perform an Auto White Balance (AWB) operation to produce true colours.
If it detects blue light it will warm up the shot. On finding orange light it will cool the colours down. imovie’s Colour balance tools help you fine-tune incorrectly balanced colours.
