Join Robbie Carman for an in-depth discussion in this video Evaluating contrast and exposure with the RGB Parade, part of DaVinci Resolve Guru: Mastering Scopes.
- Well generally speaking, I prefer to use…the Waveform set to Luma Only,…to evaluate contrast and exposure.…Because the RGB Parade works just like a Waveform,…but breaks the signal out into RGB components,…it can be used to evaluate contrast and exposure…if you don't feel like switching between…the Waveform and the Parade.…Later in this chapter, we'll use the RGP Parade…how most colorists actually use it,…to evaluate color balance in a shot.…But for now, let's explore using the Parade…to evaluate contrast and exposure.…
So, here on our project, I have 0403 opened up,…and I'll launch my scopes,…making sure that I am on the Parade.…Now, just like the Waveform, the Parade is going to…allow us to measure the exposure and contrast in a shot.…And if you recall from the chapter on reading a Waveform,…contrast is seen as the difference between the…darkest portions of the shot…and the brightest portions of the shot.…And remember, the scale that the RGB Parade uses…goes from dark down here, or black at zero,…up to white here at 1023, so it mimics the tonal range.…
