What is a color preset in ScreenFlow?

A color preset in ScreenFlow is a predefined setting that allows users to apply a specific color grading or color correction to their videos. This feature is particularly useful for maintaining a consistent look and feel across multiple videos or scenes. Users can adjust various parameters such as brightness, contrast, saturation, and hue to create a desired color effect, and then save these settings as a preset.

Once a color preset is saved, it can be quickly applied to other videos or scenes in the future, saving time and ensuring consistency. This is especially beneficial for users who regularly produce videos and want to maintain a consistent visual style. It also allows for easy replication of popular color grading styles seen in professional films and TV shows.
