DaVinci Resolve: Color Correcting LOG, Raw, & Flat Footage

Patrick Inhofer

About this course

Explore the concepts of LOG and Raw footage with colorist Patrick Inhofer as he underscores the disparity between the two recording methods and shows you how to tell the difference when using DaVinci Resolve. In this installment of DaVinci Resolve Guru, Patrick also shows you how to set your raw settings for a project and individually, shot by shot. Explore the concept of color correcting flat footage shot on a DSLR and how that differs from shooting log and raw.

Learn the differences between LOG, Raw, and flat recordings, then explore two different methods for color correcting that footage. Patrick shows you how to color correct manually, using the traditional tools in DaVinci Resolve. Next he explains how to use lookup tables (LUT), and discusses LUT strengths and limitations.

 
Topics include:

  • Differentiating between raw and log recordings
  • Differentiating between cameras that record flat vs. log
  • Setting project-wide raw and LUT preferences
  • Applying LUTs to footage
  • Exporting LUTs from Resolve
  • Color correcting raw footage
  • Color correcting log footage
  • Using LUTs with log, raw, and flat footage
  • Importing, exporting, and managing LUTs in Resolve
