Color grading is an essential tool for making impressions, telling stories, and evoking responses from your video viewers. ColorDirector offers creative video-makers of all skill levels, the means to dramatically improve their projects through use of tools to control color and lighting.

Easily stylize your video

HDR Video

Apply HDR to your videos to add more dynamic range to your scenes, bring out the detail and highlight the best parts of your footage.

Split Toning

Split toning is an old photography technique that is now a more recent (and very effective) addition to the video editor’s toolkit.

• Add specific colors to the shadows and highlights of a video

• A great way to evoke a certain feeling from your video footage, or even achieve a dramatic effect

Built-in Movie Presets

ColorDirector comes with a range of built-in, professionally designed presets that emulate the styles of well-known films. You can also save any manual adjustments you make to a video as a preset and use it again on future projects.

Motion Tracking & Selection Masks

Intelligent motion tracking algorithm makes frame-by-frame object tracking a breeze. Precision selection masks let you select, isolate and track multiple objects and accurately track their movements, and change or enhance their color

Color Splash

Quickly add drama and focus to your videos by turning them to black and white while retaining selected parts of the clip in color. A great way to draw the viewers eye and create memorable videos.

Color Shift 

Completely change the look of objects in your video with Color Shift. Sliding the Color Wheel lets you remap the colors in your video to give it an entirely different feel.

360º video color grading

360º Video Support 

With ColorDirector you can import, edit and export 360-degree video footage. Cutting edge technology accurately works with 360º video so that your edits are maintained throughout the entirety of your footage.

Round-trip Editing with PowerDirector 

To cut down on your 360º video editing time. Use PowerDirector to edit your raw video footage, launch ColorDirector directly from PowerDirector’s interface for color grading, then send the footage back to PowerDirector for video rendering and production.

Quickly fix color & light problems

RGB Curves

Manually setting the tonal values of the shadows, midtones, and highlights in a video is a great way to achieve exactly the look you’re after.

Dynamic Keyframing

Adjust color effects and dynamically animate selection masks with great detail and precision.

Noise Reduction & Sharpening

Noise Reduction reduces extraneous visible artifacts including luminance (grain) and color noise, that degrade video quality.

Pro-level performance

High Frame Rate Video Support

It's now easier to perform professional color grading on your action camera videos with support to import 120/240fps slow motion footage from your iPhone, GoPro or other popular action sports cameras.

64-bit TrueVelocity 6 

ColorDirector offers native 64-bit support and the award-winning TrueVelocity editing engine for improved system efficiency and faster loading of HD video footage.

Pre-rendering for Better Previews 

Intelligent pre-rendering technology means that when you preview your work in ColorDirector you won't have to deal with stuttery playback and dropped frames.
