Explore the art and science of color grading, an often underused aspect of filmmaking. Learn about why color is important in the filmmaking post-production process, how to adjust the grade to accurately reproduce the colors that were shot, and how correcting color can completely transform bland or poorly shot footage. See how the process of color grading can correct common issues, create a more believable composite in visual effects, and establish or alter the artistic intent and mood of a scene. Plus, find out how to solve real-world workflow issues when exporting nonlinear editor (NLE) timelines for the color grade. Along the way, instructor Chad Perkins explores some of the most popular color correction tools, including DaVinci Resolve, Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe After Effects, and Redcine-X.
