    Defining Density and Tone

    Depends on the context, but density is brightness and tone could relate to the tonal curve. Brightness and individual curve adjustments are a good combination to work a desirable contrast into the image.

    Fusion in Resolve vs. standalone version

    One of the main differences was that you you couldn't load footage directly into the Resolve version, but now you can through the "Loader node" in V15.

    Filmic image possible just by grading?

    Hi Jeremy. I simply mean that a film image often have deep blacks in the mids.

    Filmic image possible just by grading?

    Watch your corrections through a curve and see how the image acts. For every little curve adjustment you make, the prior corrections will behave differently and you will get a different result. Good luck.

    Filmic image possible just by grading?

    Can't think of a better place than Lowepost for these things, it's really mentioned everywhere, you just have to know what to look for. From the Hobbit article: "Luma curves are one of my favourite tools to use in achieving a richer, bolder look. By grabbing a still of how a shot sits with the desired exposure levels etc and playing with the curve in conjunction with Lift Gamma Gain, you are able to get some extra tone into areas of the picture that the standard tools can’t reach alone. Often you end up in the same place as your still with no perceivable difference, but sometimes, with enough experimenting, you can come up with some beautiful richness and depth and still keep the same exposure level to what you started with and desired in the first place, just a much richer frame in certain subtle areas. This doesn’t always work so you have to be judicious."

    Filmic image possible just by grading?

    I didn't necessarily mean to say that you need to work with the curve controls. What I ment is that you can reach a more filmic contrast by sending primary contrast corrections through a custom curve or a pre-defined one in a LUT. The corrections on your first layer will then be altered by how the curve on your next layer swing and that combination will give you more control of in which range the deep black falls. Film bend of the top of the curves very gently and I can agree that lowering the brightest values can look more cinematic. Pivoting the deepest black towards the mids is also a thing many colorists do.

    Tracking a light beam matte overlay in Resolve

    It seems like the new Fusion class with Lee will cover how to do exactly what you are asking about.

    Filmic image possible just by grading?

    My take on this is that the key is to understand brightness and contrast. The colorists you are referring to primarily run all their contrast adjustments through a curve. Understanding a thing or two about color harmony also helps.

    Fusion Essential Training

    I'm a huge fan of Kevin, and impressed by the high level of quality content on this site!
  14. Hi Emily. I will like to ask, why do you think there is always green colour latching onto skin tones after a colour balance, and when you try to take it out it becomes too or quite red or magenta. Any prevention ideas, apart from creating a key, because it's not practical all the time. Any professional approach, or required mode of operation while approaching an image. Thanks for the education in advance.
