DaVinci Resolve 12.5 Tutorial – Basic Color Grading
Basic Color Grading
Learn how to Color Grade in the most advanced software for Color Grading – DaVinci Resolve
- First, you have to understand the difference between Clip color grading mode, and Timeline color grading mode.
- When you color grade in Clip mode you simply color grading only one clip that is selected.
- When you are grading on timeline mode you are color grading the whole timeline at once, and if you did a color grade to a specific clip and then you also did a timeline grading, it will simply apply above the grade you did on the clip, it acts as layers.
- To do the basic correction you need to choose Timeline mode, and then create a new serial Node, by clicking Alt + S (For Mac) or just by using the menu, “Node” -> “Add new serial node”.
- Then you have to click on the Color Wheels tab which is located at the left area of the screen.
- Then you simply click on the “A” button at the bottom left, and it will simply to an automatic correction to all the clips in the timeline. Again this is very basic correction, and you might have to go through the clips and see if you like the result, but I think it does a fair job for non proffessional use.
