Overview

Overview

Do you use the Resolve software, but need help with Node structure, grading different cameras, and workflow? If so this class might be for you? We cover intermediate techniques using the latest Resolve software that focuses on Colorists who are starting to work with clients for the first time. RG180 also looks at 8bit v 10bit, 422 v 444, Color Space, macro blocking and general problems that occur during a session. The ICA media used comes from a variety of different cameras, and is not always the best quality so more like the material and challenges we face everyday as a colorist.

These classes are normally capped at ten people with each student getting a workstation with control surfaces to share. It may also be run as a BYO laptop option. Students are encouraged to bring their own material so they can get individual feedback from the instructor. This class is designed around a small conformed sequence that you can take away. We will work through the project from start to finish considering the best strategies to get the job finished efficiently. You will be able to keep the media, project and stills — a great way to continue your learning.
