RG201: Advanced Resolve Techniques with Warren Eagles of the ICA

This course will give you a general look at color correction as well as DaVinci Resolve specifically.


AbelCine has partnered with the International Colorist Academy (ICA) to offer this advanced DaVinci Resolve workshop for current Resolve Colorists and assistant operators. This two-day, hands-on workshop will look at color correction in general, as well as in DaVinci Resolve specifically.
