119 W 23rd St Suite 700

A great class if you are a current Resolve user and want to take your grading to the next level. R101 students are encouraged to follow on with the R201. The classes are dovetailed. Ideal for current Resolve Colorists and assistant operators. We cover advanced techniques and tricks using the latest software with the DaVinci Resolve control surface. These classes are normally capped at eight-ten people with each students getting their own workstation and either the Wave, Element or Avid control surfaces. Students are encouraged to bring their own material so the instructor and the students can grade and discuss the different formats and the challenges they bring. This is an advanced class that looks at color correction in general not only from the DaVinci point of view. This new class is designed around a small conformed sequence that you can take away. We will work through the project from start to finish, using Resolve V12 and general colorist strategies to get the job finished. You will be able to keep the media project and stills, a great way to continue your learning.
