Throughout our Resolve 12 Essential and Advanced training, when talking about LUTs we have ignored the whole class of ‘1D’ LUTs that ship with DaVinci Resolve. Find out why we have been skipping those 1D LUTs, why DaVinci Resolve doesn’t export 1D LUTs and the main difference between 1D and 3D LUTs.

- As we continue our discussion on look up tables, or LUTs,…you'll notice that I've kind of been skipping over something…let's take a quick look here in the node tree.…And I'm going to right click on this node…and I've been pulling down to this 3D LUT menu…and I've been skipping over these 1D LUTs…and you may be wondering why, Patrick, aren't…we talking about 1D LUTs and in truth,…1D LUTs are not particularly useful to…colorists on a day to day basis.…
They're very specialized and I want to take a moment…to explain what the difference is…between a 1D LUT and a 3D LUT.…Now, to simulate the effect of a 1D LUT,…I've got our grayscale ramp here.…When you see a grayscale you know a scope can't be…far behind so I've got my parade scope pulled up here.…And I'm going to take this Lum Mix and set it to 0…and if you don't know why I'm doing this,…see our previous movie on emulating the AVID Symphony.…
Let's make sure we've got our qualifier loaded up…and I'm going to just place a point here on this curve…and right there is good and so I've got a point down here.…
Indie feature film and broadcast colorist Patrick Inhofer puts these more sophisticated features to practical use—color-grading shots from a documentary. Along the way, he covers the Resolve Studio databases, media management, advanced primary and secondary color-correction techniques, and even Resolve performance optimization. Follow along with the three "In Action" chapters to learn how to create a base grade, match shots, and build cinematic looks. Plus, get a glimpse into the advanced features available only in DaVinci Resolve Studio, such as motion effects and noise reduction, to help you decide if you need to upgrade to the paid version of DaVinci Resolve.
It doesn't matter what kinds of projects you shoot or edit. This training will help you develop your color correction "muscles" and deliver better results more reliably every time.
