Davinci Resolve: Intermediate

Course Duration: 3 Days

What you will learn

We look at grading techniques that focus on preserving the quality of the original colour data of the footage – this will be accomplished through carefully constructed node workflows and correctly set up RAW projects. Grading styles and looks will be designed using a variety of advanced grading palettes in Resolve, together with the Resolve FX panel and group-based workflows. The session will end on developing a good understanding of delivery formats and workflows. This course is an ideal follow-up to Colour Grading in DaVinci Resolve or Editing in DaVinci Resolve but it is open to any colourist with hands-on experience.
