About This Class

I bet you had no idea that the footage that comes directly out of your camera is actually not optimized to be viewed immediately. Cameras capture footage in a way to preserve information, NOT to naturally look beautiful to the eye. That's where color correction comes in.

Color correction and color grading are techniques that will drastically improve the quality of your video footage.

Designed for students with little to no experience in color, this class will teach you all about:

  • Luma Levels
  • S-Curves
  • Color Relationships and Color Balance
  • Saturation
  • Genre Conventions and Looks
  • Vignettes

Make your video stant out with these simple, easy-to-learn techniques.

Great class about color correcting and color grading, very complete :)
very very introductory but a good return to the basics for what you're looking for. Uses the basic tools without any detail work. Worth watching but it's not going to teach you lumetri or anything
This class was super helpful! I can't wait to experiment more.
