Whether or not you shoot with ProTune on or off, you might need to adjust and correct your colors when editing your clips. GoPro color correction doesn’t have to be complicated in Premiere Pro! I use the “Fast Color Corrector” effect to keep things as simple as possible, and here’s a short tutorial on how I do it.

GoPro Color Correction in Premiere Pro
There are only a couple of things I usually do when doing color correction. I like to use the “Fast Color Corrector” effect for this. There are many ways to adjust color in Premiere Pro, but this is one of the simplest.
The first thing I do is adjust the white balance. This sort of “set the tone” for the rest of the colors, by setting the white balance. This is pretty simple, explained in my video! All you have to do is use the dropper to find a white (or as neutral as possible) object in your image.
You may not really even notice a difference when you adjust the white balance… it sort of depends on your footage.
Next, I bump up the saturation of the clip. In my tutorial video, I’m editing footage that I shot with Protune on, so the colors are very flat. I bump up to saturation to make them pop a bit more.
Play around with the color settings and see what works best for the look you’re trying to achieve. What you do with your GoPro color correction in Premiere Pro is going to depend a lot on your footage!
