Armando Ferreira, known online as Mondo Bytes, reviews Palette Gear for film editing and color grading in Premiere Pro in a recent episode of Tested Tuesday. The self-proclaimed filmmaker, editor, and gear nerd, has been using Palette for almost an entire year in his video workflow.
“Palette actually allows me to have more precise control over my adjustments,”
“Palette actually allows me to have more precise control over my adjustments," Ferreira said in his review. It’s no surprise, Palette’s controls are more precise because you are able to use tactile feeling as opposed to digital sliders. You are also able to set a max and min value for a slider to give you even more accuracy and precision.
And since Palette gives you hands-on control of the functions you use 80% of the time at your fingertips, Palette also makes you a much faster editor. Plus, you can have multiple profiles per app, so the same dial can switch between, say, razoring clips in Premiere Pro, to applying a transition or effect. Using a Palette button, you can cycle through multiple profiles. Here are the two profiles that Mondo Bytes uses for film editing and color grading:
Palette Profile #1: Film Editing
Palette Profile #2: Color Grading
This is just how Mondo Bytes configures his Palette layout. The beauty of Palette Gear is it can be arranged to fit your unique workflow.
“You can program these to do pretty much anything in Premiere.”
Other control surfaces on the market are not nearly as affordable as Palette and none are modular, Ferreira points out, which makes Palette an ideal fit for professionals and hobbyists alike.
