How to Make Great Videos Part 2 | Fixing Common Video & Audio Issues

In this second episode of a 6-part series, Adobe Principal Evangelist Jason Levine explains how to fix commonly-encountered video and audio issues. Whether it’s correcting lens distortion from fisheye and wide-angle lenses, to stabilizing hand-held/shaky footage, to removing plosives and popping P’s in lav mic audio, applying color LUTs and using film-stock LUTs to smooth the ‘digital sharpness’ from Mavic Pro and other drone cameras, even doing basic sky replacement using HSL secondary color correction. It’s all here, step-by-step.
