Join Robbie Carman for an in-depth discussion in this video Using scopes to guide look development, part of DaVinci Resolve Guru: Mastering Scopes.
- Oh, the look.…It seems like everyone is always talking about looks.…But really, what is a look?…It's the sum of individual corrections…that manipulate a shot in various ways.…Collectively, those corrections hopefully…create a compelling look to an actual clip.…When it comes to using scopes…to help guide those looks,…I like to think of how they help in two different ways.…First, they guide the actual individual corrections…and they let you see your progress of the entire grade.…
In this movie, I want to take a look…at the both of these things,…seeing how an individual correction can be evaluated…and how the grade on a whole can be evaluated,…and then matched to another shot later on.…Here in this project I have 06_04_GuidingLook opened up.…We have seen this shot before.…This is our wide shot of the band,…but this time I want to go a little crazy with this shot.…I don't really care about it being perfectly neutral…or perfectly balanced.…I want to create a, I don't know, compelling,…fairly stylized look to this shot.…
