Join Robbie Carman for an in-depth discussion in this video Evaluating contrast and exposure with the Histogram, part of DaVinci Resolve Guru: Mastering Scopes.
- While I most often use the Waveform set to luma…to evaluate contrast,…as I mentioned when we discussed the RGB Parade,…other tools can be used to evaluate…contrast and exposure,…and the Histogram can be used for that purpose.…The only catch?…While many tools have a luma-only Histogram,…the Histogram in Resolve is an RGB Histogram.…So in that regard when it comes to evaluating contrast,…it works more like the RGB Parade…versus the Waveform set to luma.…
Let me show you what I mean.…Here in our project I have this timeline…05_03_EvaluatingContrastandExposure opened up,…and I've already launched my video scopes,…and I have the Histogram active.…As we saw in the previous movie,…the way that the Histogram works is very similar…to that of a Waveform,…meaning that we use kind of a similar scale…except the scale has been turned 90 degrees…so it's lying on its side.…Over here on the left I have my black point at 0,…and then I have white over here at 100.…
As we discussed in the previous movie,…all of these spikes that I have here…
