The Resolve / Colour Grading resource thread

Recommended Posts

There are awesome resources for colour grading and Resolve techniques out there, but they're scattered around the place, and are hard to find.  Please post anything awesome you find.

(Note: for those that are new to Resolve or colour grading, there are lots of YT "colourists" who have very little actual knowledge.  These people provide a steady stream of bad habits, misleading and flat-out wrong information.  There are exceptions, but on the whole you should be very suspicious of people selling LUTs and pumping out video after video - most of these people are professional LUT salespeople and/or YouTubers and not professional colourists!)

Juan Melara is excellent.  If you watch all the below you'll get a sense of how he uses Resolve, especially the Colour Space Transform plugin and which tools in Resolve are designed to work in which colour spaces.

If only someone could teach me to "see" these colors properly...

Yeah, that's my problem too. I know how to drive Resolve and what curves and the other controls do, what I don't know is what to do to take a shot and make it look great.

My next push might be to find some before and after shots done by skilled colourists and try and replicate their grades. When people do the before/after wipe in their showreel that might be something I can emulate. Especially when they do a few wipes showing how they built the grade.

This couldn't have come at a better time as I downloaded R15 over the weekend and started my (super procrastinated) transition from FCPx/Premiere to Resolve. My goal is to complete at least one new tutorial every day. I'm still doing just the basics, but this thread is a bookmark.

Thanks

Let us know if you have questions.  

I'd encourage everyone to just start using it and jump in.  Once you're familiar with how to use it then it's good to learn tools you don't know yet, but in the beginning its good to concentrate on how you like to work.  Pumping out little 10-60s videos is fun and gets you familiar with the whole workflow :)
