Color Grading, A Day with Laos Outfitters [video]

 

 

We are officially using Black Magic, Davinci Resolve 12.5 and we love it!  Final cut and  Adobe Premiere no longer rule the editing software kingdom.

 

It’s a great editor and the best professional color grading software we ever use!  Before, we use Adobe Finesse in After Effects…just like After Effects, you works with layers call Nodes.  The Davinci Resolve’s UI(user interface) was much easier to work with.  It’s more streamline than Adobe’s software.  If you never did color grading before, its something you should learn.  It will add a lot to your production value.  Your footage will pop instead of flat and look like  a home video.  Check out the before and after below from a footage grabbed.  It’s easy to get that film look!

Pro:

Powerful Color grading, great editor for cutting footage, awesome sound editor with mixer control.

 

Cons:

poor title insertion option.

 

Overall:  I love the tracking during color correction and how easy it was to learn.

 

Here’s the video we did for Laos Outfitter after we tour their site a couple of weeks ago in Georgia…

 

This video was shot with the D750 using the flat profile with the Nikon 50mm f1.4.  All the shot was handheld and graded using DaVinci Resolve 12.5.

It’s time to ditch your Adobe CC monthly subscription and get on the DaVinci Resolve Train!

We will definitely use this software more in the future, so far it hasn’t crash yet while rendering like Premiere.

 

Let us know what’s your favorite color grading software.
