The new shot match feature in Movie Edit Pro!

It’s a familiar problem: you’ve got lots of different video clips, but their color and tonal values don’t match. However, the new feature in our flagship video editing program can help.

Already present in Video Pro X, the fully automatic shot match feature will be available to Movie Edit Pro users from August 25th, 2016! 

So what exactly is shot match?

Shot match basically means that the appearance of an individual recording is transferred to another. The colors and tonal values are adjusted to create a color image.
While this can be carried out automatically in new editing programs, you can also work manually using the pipette tool to select certain points and enhance them.


One look – many benefits

It’s proven that a uniform image with a consistent color concept is perceived as more pleasant by the human eye. Budding film makers can harness this effect and use it in their next blockbuster production.
The basic concept is that the viewer recognizes more details in a video with a uniform, graduated color. Subtle dark-light transitions let an image include more information.

That’s why it’s a good idea to use soft color transitions in order to create uniform scenes. Tell your stories through visually arresting images and videos.

How to use shot match in Movie Edit Pro

To use shot match in Movie Edit Pro Plus all you need to do is go to the Effects area in the Video Effects tab and select the last point. Select an object and then simply apply the effect to your clip. 


Shot match makes it possible to adjust the colors and tonal values of different scenes in order to create a uniform appearance. This means that you no longer have to worry about changes of conditions while filming – the program does most of the work!
The end result is a moving image that looks fantastic in terms of look and contains perfectly matched light conditions.
