Safe Colors

Yet another difference between computer and video monitors lies in how they display colors. Video’s native color model has a much narrower range, or gamut, than the RGB model used by computers and by Premiere. As a result, computers allow you to select much more saturated colors than video allows. Anything more saturated than video’s safe colors will appear to be noisy or even bleed into areas where it doesn’t belong when displayed on a video monitor.

In the color picker, a warning sign appears when you’ve selected a color that’s not a video-safe color. Click the warning sign to shift the color to a safe color automatically when Premiere renders the color (Figure 18.16). You can adjust a clip’s brightness and color levels for video by applying the broadcast colors effect. (See Chapter 11, “Adding Effects,” to learn how to add effects to clips.)
