Join Robbie Carman for an in-depth discussion in this video Evaluating color balance with the RGB Parade, part of DaVinci Resolve Guru: Mastering Scopes.
- Earlier in this title,…we explored using the vectorscope…to evaluate overall hue and saturation in the shot.…The vectorscope is great…for an overall evaluation of color,…but it falls short in one key area…when it comes to evaluating color balance.…Where in the total range is an imbalance happening?…It's impossible, using the vectorscope,…to know for sure that, for example a blue color cast…is happening in the highlights.…You can tell that there's a lot of blue in a shot…using the vectorscope,…but you can't tell where that blue is…in the total range.…
And that's what makes the RGB parade…such a valuable tool.…Because it works like the waveform,…mimicking the total range from top-to-bottom…or from black-to-white, you can tell exactly…where you have more red, green, or blue…and where in the total range things sit.…So in this movie,…I want to show you how to evaluate a shot…using the RGB parade for checking color balance.…And to be clear, once you know how to do this,…you'll be able to work faster…and attack color problems in a shot…
