Quickstart Grading Guide for Beginners

When starting to learn color grading with DaVinci Resolve, you may have seen what some of the tools can do in online tutorials.

But if you’ve spent any amount of time looking at the color page, you’ll see that there are tons of tools.

Which should you use? What’s most important?

The best first step is to learn a sound method for approaching a grade. That will help avoid overwhelm.

Learning fundamentals will help you narrow down the toolset into the essentials that you’ll use most of the time.

Once you master those, you’ll be ready to explore others.

In this video from Cullen Kelly, you’ll learn about:

  • Intro to the Color Page
  • Color Space Transforms
  • Working with Nodes
  • Grading
  • Offset
  • Roadmap
  • Film Look LUT

    • If Blackmagic follows past history, they usually do a .0 release about 4-5 months after the Beta was first released. That would make it maybe late August or September. I would rather the final come out bug-free than make it rushed with some problems.
