Patrick begins by matching the vulture shot to the giraffe. He’s got several elements he needs to pull together and decides the key to getting these shots working together is the sky.

- Continuing on with our shot matching…of the wildlife animals, we've got these two cat shots…that are very different.…So how different are they?…What I'm going to do is call up my Scopes.…We'll go with the Four-way, because I want to take a look…at all of my signals, to see if I can kind of zero in…on what I need to do in as quick a move as possible,…a targeted move to fix this problem.…Here's the first shot, which is very bright,…and very green, and you can see kind of,…take a look here, right down here,…the shadows are lifted a little bit.…
The bunching up of the signal, it feels a little spread out.…If you watch that same area of the signal…on this second shot, it's all bunched up here, right?…It's all kind of dark and mushed together.…Then, if we look at the Vector scope,…well, we clearly have a warm push,…looking at the Vector scope.…Lots of yellows and greens, I mean,…that's typically where you would find leaves…and grass to live.…Also take a look at the Parade, we've got the red…and green about equal, and then the blue a little lower.…
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.
