Resolve software is constantly changing and to maximize your coloring opportunities you’ll need to keep up to date. This intermediate class is aimed at current Resolve users wanting to learn the latest v17 features. It also doubles as a refresher class and highlights different workflows and ways to get things done efficiently in Resolve.

This class mixes nicely shot RAW footage with badly shot problematic material, which is just the type of footage we might get in a real session. I’ll share my thoughts and workflows to maximize the new release.
