Editors have to know about color in order to fix color issues within their editing software, and, should the budget does not allow for a “real” colorist, they have to do the damage control themselves. The knowledge about color safe workflows will help ensure the quality of the end result. This class is ideal for junior colorists, editors, and VFX people with a desire to know more about color correction.
“We can fix it in post, but only if the editor knows about color.”
Just as the do and don’ts of relinking the original footage or transcoding the edit timeline to a color-correction program, it’s good to know the basics of color correction, the theory and the software.
