- Welcome to the in-action section…of the DaVinci Resolve 12 advanced training.…You know what that means?…It means you know everything you need to know…to be able to sit down next to me, color-correct with me,…as we work on this cold open together…and not get lost.…Anything I'm gonna do in here, you now know how to do.…What we're gonna do now is work on this cold open.…And the cold open, if you don't know what it is,…this is a common thing that they do in episodic television,…in documentaries, in reality shows.…
Think of the James Bond opening scene, right?…You're right into the action,…immediately getting sucked into the film.…And then they hit the title sequence…and then movie actually begins.…That's what a cold open is.…On a documentary like this,…it's more like a montage designed to preview…what's about to come up.…You introduce some immediate drama,…some immediate action.…And for us, on this documentary, it feels like a montage.…This is something I've made up,…this not the actual open to this film.…
But what I've done is pull together…
Indie feature film and broadcast colorist Patrick Inhofer puts these more sophisticated features to practical use—color-grading shots from a documentary. Along the way, he covers the Resolve Studio databases, media management, advanced primary and secondary color-correction techniques, and even Resolve performance optimization. Follow along with the three "In Action" chapters to learn how to create a base grade, match shots, and build cinematic looks. Plus, get a glimpse into the advanced features available only in DaVinci Resolve Studio, such as motion effects and noise reduction, to help you decide if you need to upgrade to the paid version of DaVinci Resolve.
It doesn't matter what kinds of projects you shoot or edit. This training will help you develop your color correction "muscles" and deliver better results more reliably every time.
