Join Robbie Carman for an in-depth discussion in this video Evaluating color balance with the Histogram, part of DaVinci Resolve Guru: Mastering Scopes.
- In the previous movie, we explored…using the histogram to evaluate contrast,…and I mentioned in that movie…that Resolve doesn't have a dedicated Luma histogram,…but the RGB histogram that it does have…makes it a valuable tool to evaluate color balance.…Now, you can use the RGB histogram…as the primary way to evaluate color in your shots,…but I tend to use it to verify…what the RGB Parade, or the waveform with the color overlay,…is showing me.…
Let me show you how this works.…So I have 05_04_EvaluatingColorBalance open,…and we've seen this shot before.…This is a shot that obviously is rather blue,…it has really poor white balance,…and we looked at this shot previously…using the RGB Parade.…This time, though, I want to take a look at this shot…using the histogram,…so I'll open up my Scopes,…and here on the histogram,…I think you can see, just like we saw with the RGB Parade,…that the imbalance in the color is pretty obvious.…The blue channel in this graph right here…is clearly elevated over the green…and the red graphs,…
