Overview

Overview

In the last two years, we have seen an exponential growth in HDR productions. As a result, there is a big demand for colorists skilled in grading and delivering in HDR. This intensive two-day masterclass will prepare you for the job of grading and delivering HDR shows for Netflix, Amazon or any other HDR channel using DaVinci Resolve.

The training program is split into two parts. Theory covers all aspects of HDR technology, Color Science, Workflow and new Mastering Formats. During the practical portion of the class, you will learn how to approach a grading session, translate looks from HDR and SDR, and how to get the best image quality in the shortest possible time. This part is designed to expose attendees to a variety of HDR material. From dark night scenes, studio and VFX scenes to bright exterior scenes, we will work with perfectly shot material and deal with problem shots like noise, archive footage or overexposed material. Our ultimate desire is for you to develop an eye for good HDR.
