Join Robbie Carman for an in-depth discussion in this video Evaluating overall hue and color contrast, part of DaVinci Resolve Guru: Mastering Scopes.
- As we discussed in the previous movie in this chapter,…the main role of the vectorscope…is to measure overall hue and saturation in a shot.…Evaluating the hues present in a shot…is a key thing you'll need to become a better colorist,…as hue can indicate the presence of a color cast,…point towards the time of day in a scene,…and in a general sense, show you the colorfulness of a shot,…also known as color contrast.…In this movie, I wanna evaluate some shots…for the overall color and color contrast…that is present in them.…
So here in our Resolve project,…I'm on timeline 03_03_EvaluatingHueColorContrast.…And like other timelines, this timeline has three shots,…so just make sure you're on the first shot in this timeline.…This is a shot we've seen in a previous sequence…of some warm windows late in the afternoon,…so we have this nice warm light coming in.…Now my eyes are telling me that this is a warm shot,…and by looking at it I can see that there should,…well probably, be some yellow,…maybe a little green in there.…
