Join Robbie Carman for an in-depth discussion in this video Evaluating color balance with the Waveform, part of DaVinci Resolve Guru: Mastering Scopes.
- If you've ever used a waveform before…you've probably come to depend on it.…Mainly as a tool for evaluating light in a shot,…meaning contrast and exposure.…And while that's true the waveform in Resolve…can actually be used to evaluate color balance.…But you first need to configure it for this task.…Let's dive in and I'll show you how this all works.…Here our project I have this sequence opened,…02_04_EvalutatingColorBalance,…and obviously looking at the shot you can tell…that I have a pretty warm shot.…
If I play it, yeah, it looks pretty good,…but obviously it's pretty yellow, little green mixed in,…kinda warm, sort of end of the day, sunsety type of field.…If I open up my scopes by shift + ctrl + w,…or if I'm on a Mac that's cmd + shift + w.…I wanna make sure I'm on my waveform.…Now, in the previous movie we looked at the waveform…to evaluate contrast and overall exposure in a shot,…and we did that because we were looking at the waveform,…and it's Luma only mode,…and remember you can configure the waveform…
