We are so excited to announce two brand new training courses on Teachable.com!
The Basics OF Color Grading
This course will teach you all the basics you need to know to get started with color grading your projects. We work through an example mockumentary adjusting each shot, matching them together, fixing white balance, and adding style.
Great for beginners to learn a basic understanding of how color works.
Color Grading A Documentary Segment
Ride along in the passenger seat of a real color grading job as Casey works through a documentary segment, matching shots, fixing problems, and creating a stylistic look that's appropriate for the piece. The cool part is the whole training is in real time, which means that mistakes and problems aren't glossed over or cut out. See how Casey deals with program errors, bugs, and mistakes. Should be great for anyone who is familiar with color, but wants some extra practice and perspective on a real world job.
I get this question a lot. Why the heck are you adjusting things in the node before the LUT? Doesn't it make sense to put it on first and then tweak it?
Here's my thoughts on that:
It all comes down to how you control what the LUT is doing. Do you want the LUT to be the final say in the colors of the image, or do you want to change what the LUT looks like? Either might be the best thing to do at the time, but it's up to you!
Hope that helps the confusion!
Here's a little guide on how to actually use those fancy new LUTs you just downloaded. Hope that helps!
