Retouching Faces in Adobe Premiere Pro

January 8, 2018

We’ll never forget when we first saw Sunset Boulevard and heard that iconic line, “All right, Mr. DeMille, I’m ready for my close-up.” Filmmaking has changed a lot since then but a major constant is the need to have talent look and feel her or his best. Luckily, Continuum’s Beauty Studio with built-in Mocha tracking & masking is here to take the pain out of digital make-up and beauty work.

Beauty Studio is included in the full Continuum Suite or can be purchased as part of the Image Restoration Unit.

In this Continuum tutorial, Premiere Gal shows how to retouch and smooth skin in Adobe Premiere Pro with Beauty Studio.
