Learn the color correction and grading using Divinci Resolve. This hands on training course will teach you the key tools & the colour correction & grading process.

Learn the rules and process of Colour Correction, how to read scopes and use them to analyse and fix shots. How to use qualifiers and masks to do secondary correction and build grades. How to track elements in a shot, and how to colour correct over a sequence. And how to save and apply grades over a sequence.

We look at grading techniques that focus on preserving the quality of the original colour data of the footage – this will be accomplished through carefully constructed node workflows and correctly set up RAW projects. Grading styles and looks will be designed using a variety of advanced grading palettes in Resolve, together with the Resolve FX panel and group-based workflows. The session will end on developing a good understanding of delivery formats and workflows. This course is an ideal follow up to Color Grading in DaVinci Resolve 14 or Editing in DaVinci Resolve 14 but it is open to any colorist with hands-on experience.


A person who wishes to work in the video field or who currently works in the field, looking to learn advanced node pipelines, animation techniques and RAW file format theory and workflows. Some students may be mainly interested in creating video primarily for the Web, and others for film, but the majority are preparing more for work in broadcast video.
