Guys, first of all, take your gameplay and this flicker effect. And there is one snow effect that you'll get in a pack; try that as well because it looks much better. So, after adding, you've to add your gameplay first, then add or cut the clip as required.


After adding, you've to come into "Color." In simple meaning, you've to set “Exposure” to up to 4 and increase our “Brightness” from up to 4 to 5 and decrease the “Contrast” like keeping it under 30, under -30, I mean. Rest keep “Highlights” and “Shadow” low simply by decreasing them, which will help you to see a better output.


Now the main part is here, as you've to come into the "HSL." So, guys, keep the same settings as I am keeping, and you can add those numbers, due to which the color grading is perfectly implemented into your gameplay. So, guys, I have provided you with all the numbers here, so you can write them by seeing them.


So, guys, as you can see here, your color grading is almost completed. T-line orange looks would appear in front of you. Copy and paste it onto the top layer and multiply it. And guys, again, copy it and paste it onto the top layer. Make three or four layers like this and keep pasting on all the layers. Continue adding and repeating this process until only the sky appears while the rest is blackened.


After adding, you’ve to move into “Recommended” and search here “Geometric Hexagon,” and you’ll find this one. Add this, and after adding, export it to your gallery where you want it to export. So, I will export it to my gallery. So guys, export it in 60 fps high-quality resolution and don’t export in low resolution.


Guys, delete the rest from here and import our main video in which we have added our hexagon. After importing it, you need to decrease the saturation of the blue color. You can also add any color you want. Since I need black and white, so I will decrease the saturation.


And here, guys, you've got to add "Square Blur." Then come into size, keep its size to 30, which is Square Blur's size, and ultimately screen it. So as you can see, guys, your sky blue has been added. And, guys, copy it once and paste it. So if you need more sky color, your sky color will increase, as you can see. We will take another part at the top of this layer and apply a flicker effect to it, which you will get from the pack, and you can download it. And we'll keep its opacity between 3 to 5.


Now you’ve to go into “NewBlue FX” and add “Detail” by Chroma or Luma, and your HDR effect will be applied.
