FiLMiC Pro White Balance Tips

Tip #1: Zoom in digitally on your white balance card so it fills the frame. Smartphones analyse the whole frame, not a specific point. Then lock your WB and zoom all the way back out.

Tip #2: To avoid white balance fluctuation in FiLMiC Pro try our new ‘auto lock white balance on record’ mode. We have a full tutorial available here.

Tip #3: Remember you can save a custom white balance preset to the ‘A’ and ‘B’ user preset buttons in FiLMiC Pro. Just dial in your white balance, then long press either button! This makes recalling a custom white balance preset a one tap process.
