Colour correction is an essential part of the post-production pipeline. Learn how the new technology of colour correction allows you to improve your video in subtle ways that will attract and interest more viewers and help you tell your story or create your project more effectively.  

Learn the basics of colour correction using DaVinci Resolve in this hands-on workshop. You will begin to look at an image as a colourist would look at it. Learn how to set up a video in DaVinci Resolve so that you can begin to colour correct. In addition, glean basic techniques for changing colours such as: using scopes, lift, gamma and gain, how to work with DaVinci Resolve’s nodes, and more.

Next, be introduced on how to match shots – so that different cuts appear seamless to the viewer. Students are encouraged to bring their own videos to work on an 3.0 USB external hard drive.
