Just as Patrick starts to work on the kids in front of the hut, he gets a call and has to swap out that shot for a new one. There’s only one problem… the shot looks completely different from the rest of the scene! What’s a colorist to do? Watch to see how the work you’ve already done can be built upon and matched to this new shot.

- [Voceover] Picking up from where we left off,…let's get the rest of this scene to match up.…If I bounce between these, maybe on this wide shot,…I feel like maybe I've got a touch of green,…and it could be on this wide shot, we never isolated him…on the wide shot to brighten him up a touch, but yeah,…it's basically there, and that's the beauty of…this multi pass work flow.…We do the shot match, and then someone throws…a curve ball at us, and we've gotta take all these shots,…that already match, and change them somehow,…apply it globally, well now that the match is done,…we can take those nodes, that make this big broad change,…and reapply them and reuse them,…to quickly line everything back up again.…
Usually, I have a little bit more tweaking to do,…but it's a great shortcut, and really,…this workflow really starts to accelerate on itself,…so before we go in and hit Vhen,…let's take a look at these other two shots here,…this shot here, let's do the same thing.…Right click, Display Node Graph.…Drop back on here, and then I'm also gonna pull up…
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.
