Put red in the center of Lumetri curves, not cyan. That would make it easier to adjust skin tones.
For the Lumetri Color Effect’s curves controls (Hue vs Sat, Hue vs Hue, and Hue vs Luma), cyan is in the center, while red is on the far left and right sides. This is inconvenient, because most users will probably want to adjust skin tones more than anything else, and skin tones are almost always somewhere in the reds and yellows. Therefore, I propose that red be in the center by default, while cyan is on the edges.
NOTE: Because a horizontal scroll bar is already available, it is possible for the user to essentially do this themselves... but because skin tones are the most common thing I adjust, I find that I have to manually scroll that bar all the way to the left or right, 80% of the time I use these controls. So it would definitely be less hassle (for me) if red was already in the center.
There may be a good reason to have cyan in the middle, but I can't think of it.
thanks for the productive conversation and all the fantastic feedback. Also wanted to take a moment to thank those of you who took the beta out for a test drive, that’s tremendously helpful for us in making sure we’re hitting the mark with these feature improvements.
15.0 is officially available as of last week and it includes this feature update. As it is a major version update, be sure to check out the full list of what’s new before making the move.

This would be great to offer a toggle at the control itself to allow for backward support for those who like the way it is, and also to allow preference to chose the default way you like it to behave. Maybe even make it configurable as to when you want to be in the center to make it easier to everyone based on their common work load.
