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.

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.
