    Even though I have had some experience with Resolve, these tutorials were no doubt an eye opener to me in the areas of Noise Reduction. The tutorials are not way to lenghty and were to the point. Even though these tutorials have given me enough to chew on, I wished that there was more covered so I could learn much more.

    I am sure I will keep returning to these tutorials as I work on my projects to sharpen my skills.

    I learned so much from this tutorial, and I appreciated the fact that the instructor is a professional fulltime colorist. The segment on noise reduction was particularly eye-opening. I did notice some discrepancies between some approaches in this tutorial and approaches recommended in the Advanced Color Grading in Resolve 15 tutorial (e.g., where to put noise reduction in the node tree), but that’s to be expected as there’s no one right way to do any of this. I also learned a lot about Resolve’s “Revival” plugins for working with archival footage. I’ll be returning to this tutorial over and over in my work.
