- Obviously it's important to get shots…by themselves looking good.…But one of the main points of color grading…is to get shots to flow, and be more consistent…shot to shot as to not distract your audience.…Well color of course is an important thing to match,…and we'll talk about that in a later movie in this chapter,…when it comes to shot matching,…contrast matching should be your first stop.…And the reason I say that is because our eyes…are more sensitive to light then they are to color.…
Matching white, black, and mid tone contrast is essential.…When these things don't match,…audiences are more likely to notice.…And they'll notice these mismatches more then they'll notice…slight or even medium size color mismatches.…While trained eyes can help in detecting…contrast and exposure matching issues,…a few of the scopes we've learned about provide…hard evidence, and a visual way of seeing any mismatches,…and providing guidance for fixing 2 disparate shots.…
