Join Robbie Carman for an in-depth discussion in this video Evaluating saturation, part of DaVinci Resolve Guru: Mastering Scopes.
- Saturation, or the intensity of a particular hue,…is one characteristic of color that every colorist…needs to be concerned with.…Many times,…you'll want to increase overall saturation…to make a shot more colorful,…or maybe decrease saturation…to flatten out a shot and make it seem,…well, maybe more mysterious.…Sometimes you may wanna play with the saturation…of a particular hue.…For example, desaturating an overly saturated red…of someone's shirt.…Well, when it comes to saturation,…the vector scope is the perfect analysis tool.…
So here in our project, I have the sequence…03_04_EvaluatingSaturation opened,…and, once again, I'll open up our scopes,…making sure that I'm looking at…the vector scope.…Remember, the angle around the vector scope,…of course, represents hue,…but the distance out…from the center of the scope right here…to the outside edge…represents saturation.…As I increase the saturation on a shot,…notice how the trace extends further out…towards the outside edge.…
Or if I decrease the saturation on a shot,…
