Adobe’s. picture editing tool, Lightroom, is receiving an unexpected new feature: the ability to edit video. users will be able to color grade their films using the app’s current settings as of this week’s release. controls are, at least in my experience, far more intuitive for adjusting the appearance of an image than traditional color grading tools in video apps; when combined with users’ familiarity with the controls, the new feature should be a powerful option for anyone who wants to change the appearance of a video.
The video editing capability will be available on both the desktop and mobile versions of Lightroom. It won’t be available in Lightroom Classic, which already has restricted video editing capabilities. (From the Library page, you could trim films and apply basic tone settings, but the complete develop panel wasn’t available, as it will be in the next .) Other changes to and Classic include an intensity slider to adjust the intensity of effects and new “adaptive presets” filters, which employ AI to apply effects to particular elements of a picture, such as the subject or sky.
