Overview

***PLEASE NOTE: This virtual training session will take place in the PACIFIC TIME ZONE.***

If you've taken an online introduction class, are self-taught, or have been coloring with Resolve but have unanswered questions, this class is designed to be your next step in Resolve education. 

This virtual class will cover intermediate techniques using the latest Resolve software, with a focus on colorists who are starting to work with clients for the first time. This class will mix software operation with real world grading tips and tricks. 

This class will use ICA media from a variety of different cameras. This footage is not always beautifully shot and will provide realistic conditions and challenges, similar to those colorists face everyday. 

During the class, designed around a small-conformed sequence, you will work through the project from start to finish, considering the best strategies to get the job finished efficiently. 

This virtual class is capped at six people and you will receive a media download link 7 days before the class starts. You are encouraged to share your own material so you can receive individual feedback from Warren Eagles. 

At the end of the class, you can keep all the ICA media, lessons, projects, and the screen recordings, allowing you to continue your learning after the class has finished. Students will also receive an ICA Virtual Certificate. You will be able to get your bio on the ICA website and will have access to discounts from the sponsors.

FAQs 

What equipment will I need? 

  1. A laptop or desktop PC or MAC capable of running the latest DaVinci Resolve software. Resolve is a good bench mark for the type of machine needed.  
  2. Two monitors are preferred but not essential. This means you can have your software on one monitor and the instructor on the other.  
  3. A headphone set and microphone is essential.  
  4. Check that you have a steady, reliable Internet connection.  
  5. Ability to download 15GB of training footage. 

We run a pre-class flight check for each student before the class begins.

How will I get the training footage and supporting documents? 
A week before your class you’ll receive a download link. This will enable you to be confident and comfortable of your setup before the class begins.

Can I keep the training footage after the class?
Yes. Media and any handouts can be used to progress your learning.

Will I get a recording of the class? 
Yes. All classes are recorded and distributed as a temporary streaming link after the course concludes.
