Adobe SpeedGrade Editor's Review

Adobe has been a long time player in video editing and post production sector, with apps like Premier Pro and AfterEffects winning accolades and keeping customers hooked for several years. To cater to a niche section of the target users, it has launched SpeedGrade- a powerful and feature packed professional color grading software. It is not a mainstream video editor as such. However, using it you can make fine color adjustments, tinker with shadows and highlights and make your final videos look more polished. It can be purchased as a standalone suite or as a part of Adobe Creative Cloud.

AdobeSpeedGrade, like most of its creative suite siblings do not support Operating systems older than Windows 7 SP1. It is also a 64 bit app. To run it you will need minimum 4 GB RAM and recommended amount is 8 GB. Adobe also recommends using powerful GPU with 1 GB VRAM including NVIDIA Quadro 4000 or higher.

The app features a dark gray colored UI, like most of Adobe Creative suite products. However, it looks different from other Adobe video apps. As a matter of fact, you will need to use a dual monitor setup to harness full potential of the tool. The palette of tools equipped with the app is adequate to fine tune quality of your videos. The learning curve is steep and even seasoned editors will need some time before they can utilize all features of the app properly.

At the core of AdobeSpeedGrade lies the Lumetri Deep Color Engine which lets you fine tune raw video footages or those imported from Premiere Pro with ease. It is possible to work on several footages simultaneously with the app. It also integrates well with other Adobesoftware including Photoshop. In Premier Pro there is an option called ‘Send to SpeedGrade’ which ensures all edit points are preserved when footage is imported in SpeedGrade.

The app’s rich toolset is ideal to tweak with every aspect of video footage. With these controls, you can make fine adjustments to highlights, mid tones and shadows. The intuitivewheels and slider controls make playing with brightness and gamma easier. Color temperature can also be tweaked. You can adjust glare in clips and highlight objects covered by shadow or darkness to an extent.

With the app’s grading layers, you can deploy light in footages the way you want. The modifications can be extended to other footages to generate a consistent appearance. SpeedGrade comes equipped with a collection of provided looks such as Desaturation and Cinematic and they can be customized to suit your needs. It also supports masks as layer elements making it possible to segregate areas in clips where color correction needs to be applied. Masks can be made using a number of shapes as it is. When you mask an object with motion in clip, it is possible to use motion tracker.

SpeedGrade supports 3D stereoscopic workflow for raw footage and edited clips. To output stereo pairs you will need to render the footage and here you get plenty of choices like calibration LUTs,orientation options etc.

Positive Points:
•    Dual display and 3D stereoscopic workflow support.
•    Excellent color grading corrections.
•    Seamless integration with Adobe apps.
•    Support for layers and masks.

Negative Points:
•    Steep learning curve.
•    Very steep system requirements.
•    No support for older Windows versions.

Conclusion:
Clearly, SpeedGrade is aimed at top notch video editing setups, film producers and niche users who are particular about output quality of video footages. It is not a video editor for that matter but you may use it along with your existing video editing app to obtain fine results. The app integrates well with Adobe apps, as expected. Premiere Pro users can be particularly benefited. Undeniably, its color grading controls and features are far superior to what you get in typical non-linear editing setups. The learning curve however is steep and same can be said about the app’s system requirements. It requires a really powerful 64 bit system to run. Lack of support for OS versions below Windows 7 can be a deterrent for some people. If money is not a concern, and you have enough patience to master nuances of this versatile app, there is hardly any alternative.

Rating:4.5/5
