Primary correction is very important. It’s the base of any “cool look”.
Get it right and it will simplify your whole color correction process.
Serial and Parallel nodes
You’ll use them all the time, how do they work and when do you use each one.
Keying is a very important part of what we do as colorists. Learn how to key in Resolve using either HSL RGB or LUM. Is it best to key a color or adjust its Secondary curve?
Each node has 4 Power Windows, the classic DaVinci Circle, Linear square, Polygon and a Bezier Power Curve.
