Fxphd Insider Techniques for the Pro Colorist – Gold
What level is this class?
This is an Intermediate/advanced class where you get 12 lessons and the media that is used in each class. You should have completed the Fundamentals course or have been previously color correcting with Resolve. Maybe you have been coloring with an older version and want a refresher on what is new. You can follow along with the classes using the same techniques on the same footage as Warren uses during the classes. All media is supplied.
What will I be Coloring?
A mixture of footage, Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera ProRes and BRAW, RED R3D, Sony A7ii, and GoPro, including all the problem footage. You will also get all the XMLs and reference movies used in the conform classes.
Why take this class?
You want to learn what is new in Resolve 16 and at the same time get an insider view of the techniques the professional Colorists use in their daily grading sessions. I think my real world experience as a colorist and teaching classroom classes helps the way I transport techniques into online training classes.
Who is this class for?
This is for you is you what to take your grading to the next level and are starting to work with clients. Even if you use Resolve on a daily basis you’ll get something from these classes.
