Color Grading Tutorial (Film $h!t w/JR)

Check out our latest DaVinci Resolve color grading tutorial! Were back at it with another episode of Film Sh!t w/JR. Several times a week I receive emails with questions about how I color my videos so I hope this helps.  In this episode I cover my color grading process as well as several tips and tricks to get your footage to pop. I take you from a log image to a final polished rec 709 youtube ready clip. We cover some of my grading techniques as well as my workflow on every grade. I talk about how I use denoising and grain and pull keys to get the perfect skin tone.  Enjoy!!! if you have any questions or comments feel free to email me and don’t forget to suscribe to our email and youtube channel!

Video Workflow

People are always asking about my video shooting and editing workflow. I Often shoot with different cameras which means different file formats. However the process of shooting and post workflow are the same. I wanted to give you a basic rundown of my workflow this could be different for others but it works for me.
davinci resolve console
Filmmaking order of operation…….
  1. Shoot epic $h!t!
  2. Take raw clips create proxies (low res easy to edit files)
  3. Import and edit into editing software ie premiere, fcpx, etc
  4. Create an xml and open in Davinci. Make sure u link the raw files to the timeline not the proxies. So your gonna color the raw files
  5. Color and export from Davinci
  6. Vfx and cleanup. 
  7. Render final for web.
