- I'm going to show you a feature…that was actually released with Resolve 12.0,…but it hasn't made it into my training so far,…and I really, really think it's nifty.…It's in the Color page, and it's all about filtering…our timeline thumbnails.…I've opened up our Hero Shots timeline,…if you're following along with the exercise files,…and the filtering happens up here, in Clips.…Now, we've already known about this clip filtering.…For instance, I can look for any clips that are ungraded.…
Just highlight that,…and these clips have not been graded yet.…It's a very quick and easy way of looking for clips…with specific features.…Some other common features: if the clips have been modified…within a certain number of hours,…if they've been flagged, if they've been tracked,…have noise reduction.…What's new is Create Smart Filter.…I'm going to go ahead and click that,…and this allows us to take that list of features…and create more advanced filtered sorting,…so I'm going to call this one Smart Filter 1.…
I'm going to call this No Grade Tracked,…
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.
