This footage from Uganda (courtesy of the Forestry Extension Institute, skogkurs.no) was shot on an iPhone, and the colors drifted and changed a lot during the shots. Some clips also needed stabilizing. This is just a handful of clips, but the project had hundreds of clips like these that needed some work.
I did some training with their editor, and she was able to finish the film with a much better quality than they thought was possible. She used CS5.5, but I borrowed some of her material so I could try out the new tools in Premiere Pro CS6. CS6 speeded up the process considerably.
I shot this handheld with my iPhone 4s, so it's pretty shaky. I used the Warp Stabilizer in Premiere Pro CS6 with the default settings, and it's almost like magic! All the finishing was done inside of Premiere Pro.
This video shows the film Making Tar (vimeo.com/40581474) before and after color grading and finishing in Adobe Premiere Pro. Primary and secondary color corrections, stabilizing, sharpening etc. all done in Premiere Pro CS6.
