Tip #1395: Saturation vs. Vibrance
Vibrance is a better choice for boosting color saturation for video clips.
What’s the difference between Vibrance and Saturation? Something significant, actually. Both these settings are in the Lumetri Color > Creative panel.
The short answer is that when you need to adjust saturation, you may get better results by using Vibrance, than Saturation, especially if there are a lot of highlights or shadows in your image.
- Saturation. Adjusts the saturation of all colors in the clip equally from 0 (monochrome) to 200 (double the saturation).
- Vibrance. Adjusts the saturation so that color clipping is minimized as colors approach full saturation. This setting changes the saturation of all lower-saturated colors, while having less effect on the higher-saturated colors. Vibrance also prevents skin tones from becoming oversaturated.
