Adobe SpeedGrade is a color grading application used to alter the aesthetics of video projects. Speedgrade was available for Windows and OS X platforms and included with the Creative Cloud suite, but Adobe discontinued the application.

SpeedGrade fully integrates with Premiere Pro through the Direct Link feature, which allows you to edit complete Premiere Pro projects in SpeedGrade. In addition, the editor provides various editing tools that help you correct the color of your video and create stylized effects. For example, you can adjust the color and contrast of the video, copy corrections from one shot and apply them to others, color grade video with a mask, and apply looks with Look Manager. The application also provides the Continuity Checker tool, which helps you precisely match the different color grades of your video.


SpeedGrade is a helpful tool for filmmakers, editors, and visual effects artists. Whether you are using it at the beginning or end of your workflow, the editor gives you total control over the look and feel of the aesthetics of your video. With Direct Link integration, Adobe SpeedGrade is especially a great editing companion for Adobe Premiere Pro users.
