Are you looking to save time and unlock new options in your video color grading workflow? In this course, Richard Harrington explores many options for correcting and grading footage through the use of custom and modified presets. In this video, he explains what is contained in the exercise files and how they should be used.
- To help you better understand how these tools work, I've put together a collection of exercise files. Now, these files are a little bit large, because in many cases I've given you low compression video. Things using Apple ProRes. Make sure that you have the Apple ProRes codec loaded on your system in order to take advantage of this. It is included with DaVinci Resolve, Final Cut Pro X and with using Adobe Premiere Pro, so this shouldn't be a problem. Also, make sure that you have a fast enough disk drive so the files play back smoothly. If your hard drive is very cluttered, you might want to put this on external drive that uses a fast connection, or use something like an SSD. Now, the footage that I'm providing you is only for purposes to be used with this class. Please don't use it as stock footage or post it online. I'm sharing with you some footage shot under both controlled conditions and uncontrolled conditions, so you can really take a look at some of the common problems and opportunities that presets and LUTs can bring you. All right, go ahead and download those files and boot up your system. Let's get started.
