Do you want to know the step in adjusting the saturation of your video? In this tutorial, you will learn the step by step process of changing the saturation using the zShot video editor.
For a quick refresher, let us recall the concept of saturation and its importance to video editing.
Significance of adjusting the saturation
Color saturation refers to the intensity or purity of a color. The higher the saturation of a color, the more vivid it is. The lower the saturation of a color, the closer it is to gray.
Decreasing the saturation of a video or photo can display a muting or calming effect while increasing it can demonstrate a more vivid feel. It is important not to over-saturate or under saturate a video. Why? It is because over saturation might produce unnatural color or too strong feelings to an output. On the other hand, under-saturated videos can leave an emotional feel that might not be accurate to the subject of the video.
Color saturation affects the overall structure and mood of a video. The level of saturation can leave a muting or vibrant effect. Thus, desaturating a video or image will produce a muted effect and conveys constrained emotion. Over saturating on a different note, can make videos intense and vibrant that reflects extreme feeling and passion.
