Correcting Lighting Problems

Learn how to correct the color balance in your footage with specific emphasis on clips that are were shot under mixed lighting conditions or were improperly white balanced in the camera.

Focusing the Eye

One of the jobs of a colorist is to focus the viewer’s eye on what is important in the frame and you’ll apply Resolve’s powerful secondary correction tools like windows, curves and blurs to keep the attention where it belongs.

Using Resolve Color Management

Many of today’s camera’s shoot with LOG profiles and you’ll learn different approaches for normalizing your footage using Resolve’s Color Management options.

Evaluating Skin Tones

Getting skin tones to look right is paramount, and learning to read the Vectorscope to see where your skin tones fall is the first step in correcting them.

    Your training has been the missing link in my color correction journey—not only does it bridge a gap in my career, but it has opened up a whole new avenue for me to explore on my own. Jason, your deep profound knowledge of this topic is so well crafted into your training. Your creative energy is bound to uplift anyone taking this course. You are genial to have shared this knowledge. Thank you!

    As a beginner, I found this tutorial easy to understand and informative. I would recommend Ripple Training for learning and will purchase more of these tutorials in the future.
