  1. Hey guys and gals, New to this forum, quick background of myself. Did Audio since 2006 and two years ago gave up audio to do video. Now i am 2 years into video and do everything for my company. I still am having a lot fo trouble learning color correcting and color grading. Im not sure if its my camera, my eyes lol or just not sure what Im doing wrong. I know Ive been filming in AUTO ISO but lately I actuall manually ISO my enviorement. ANy how long does it take to be a good colorist. I am based out of Los angeles if anyone knows anyone who can help !!!
  2. I do not often deal with the color correction of other people's projects, but I almost always paint my own, now I have a slight bewilderment, I can not pick up color for these frames. It's a short meter, a comedy genre! If you have the opportunity to help me please check with the color! Alex camera, ProRes material 444 Raw file here: https://fex.net/635068188718
  3. Here's a tutorial I posted a while back, but it's still very useful today: Creating areas of light and shadow are no problem with DaVinci Resolve. PowerWindows, polygons, or curves can be a colorist's best friend when controlling where you want areas of contrast. The only thing that limits you is the simplicity of the shapes. When shooting on set, a pattern or "gobo" can be placed in front of a light source to create shapes. We can use the same technique in Resolve by using external mattes. In this tutorial I will show how to create more intricate shadows or highlights that can make your images more moody or suggest location.

  4. Hello everybody. I have long wanted to ask, but could not. Why DaVinci? Because - Price? Quality tools? Flexibility? Accuracy in color? Capabilities? Support? After all, once the company BM lowered the prices of their program (Davinci), then immediately appeared thousands of "colorists" in the world who "can" create "wonderful" images. Yes, of course, BM has made available to many people, the world of color correction. But BM did not create these people colorists! Now almost every other editor thinks he "colorist" and that he is able to do the work of the Colorist. It reminds me of the transition from foto-film to digital photography. When I could for a long time to build the shot and choose the composition of the shot, before you take the picture. And then I selected the frame I want to print it already. Now, I see the thoughtlessness and empty, without life pictures on the Internet. So, "Why DaVinci?" Alex.

This way it is easy to paste VFX clips where they belong based on their start timecode. ● This mode always overwrites In and out points are respected when splicing: ● If both in and out are set and the material falls inside the range it will be spliced ● If the in or out points are shorter that the source, but in a valid timecode range, the source clip will be trimmed and pasted between the in and out points. ● If the in and out points are not in a valid range an error dialog will be shown. Progress bar for XML and AAF imports When importing AAF or XML files there will now be a progress bar while importing, import functions can also be cancelled using the cancel button on the progress bar. Improvement when moving multiple clips on the timeline Moving many clips on the timeline is now much faster. LUT exports Using the export LUT menu, users can now export both a LUT and an Inverse LUT. This is particularly useful for restoration workflows where a LUT is applied during the restoration work, but the LUT need to be removed afterwards. ● Only 1D LUT’s are supported - no colour transforms ● The Inverse LUT function will only be available if the 3D LUT option is deselected ● v2 CMS and HDR is supported for export - for V2 files the range is restricted between 0 and 1 ● No negative values are supported ● If an invalid Master Curve is used the export will report an error. ● Remember to specify the layer to be exported ACES 1.0.2 New Look Management Transform ● A new LMT has been added to the CMS/ACES 1.0.2/LMT folder ● LMT.Academy.ChromaFix.1.0.2.cms ● It is to be used as a LUT in an ACEScc project, ensure that the “Apply in Linear ACES” button is selected when using this LMT. ● It is designed to mitigate an issue with certain cameras that seem to generate colour values that are not correctly rendered in an ACES project. This can include blues and cyans, reds. ● Older ACES version LMT’s have been updated. For those of you grading in ACES regularly, we have a beta version of ACES with ACEScct colour space available.
