Are you unclear why you’d want to make a YRGB color adjustment versus a Y-only adjustment? This movie slows down and builds upon the difference between these two ‘moves’; a concept that was initially explored in the Davinci Resolve 12 Essential Training series. You’re being reinforced on why it’s important to remember that Resolve works in the YRGB color space.

- In DaVinci Resolve 12 Essentials Training,…I covered and maybe almost glossed over a point,…between Y-only corrections and YRGB corrections.…And I really want to emphasize it here…in the advanced training because it really is…an advanced concept.…And let me show you what I mean by that.…Let's do a quick base correction here just on brightness.…I'm going to drop down my blacks,…pull up my highlights,…and I'm going to put the sky at around,…just above 896.…
And, I'll add a little bit of saturation.…I'm going to go into a new node, Option + S.…And now let's try doing some Y-only…and YRGB operations.…Now that we have a nice image here,…that's the best way of showing these Y-only corrections.…So of course you already know that if I use…this little wheel down here,…I'm doing a YRGB correction.…You notice the Y-channel is coming up with the red,…green, and blue channels all together.…
And notice what happens…on the vector scope as I do that.…On the vector scope, I've got big saturation changes…happening as I make these YRGB corrections.…
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.
