  3. Normally, you would want to balance in one of the first nodes in the chain, then secondary techniques and run everything through the curve.
  4. The offset corrections are done prior to the the contrast curve in the node chain. The way things are set up in this lesson, all the corrections are done prior to the curve and watched through the curve. In other words, the corrections are piped through the curve and if you re-draw the curve (or change the LUT) the results of your color corrections will change.
