Do you want to learn how to edit color temperature of videos by using a simple and easy-to-use video editing app? With zShot video editor, you can change your video’s color temperature as easy as one, two, three.

Before anything else, let us further understand the concept of color temperature and its importance to the quality of a video.

Understanding Color Temperature of Videos

Technically speaking, color temperature is defined as a “black-body radiator”— an object that fully absorbs all frequencies of light and emits radiation of the same color as any given object. Sounds more confusing, right?

If we put it in layman’s terms, the color temperature of a video or image can be found by looking at the white areas. For example, if you look at a white area like a white shirt and it appears to be color blue, then the color temperature is not correct. We would say that it looks cold. On the other hand, if that white shirt looks orange, it will register a warm feeling, and it is still incorrect.

Here is another example for you to thoroughly understand color temperature. Think of a piece of metal being heated in a fire. As it gets hotter, it gives off a reddish glow, and then the color gets whiter. And when it warms up, it starts to give off a bluish light.

So, what makes an object look warm or cold? It is because different light sources produce different colored light. Every light source provides a different temperature. Light sources could be the sun, indoor lighting, a flashbulb, or even reflected light. Mastering the concept of color temperature will help you to keep your shots to look accurate and free from unnatural color casts.
