Colorists need to be able to quickly define “looks” for the scene and have realtime tools that help them turn raw images into beautiful expressions of cinematic artistry.
Mood and feeling are dramatically affected by changes in color.
DaVinci Resolve goes far beyond basic color “correction” and provides a world-class set of creative grading tools that let you manipulate light and color in breathtaking ways that complement and help tell the story.
Secondaries let you quickly isolate different parts of an image. For example, you can use HSL qualifiers or the 3D keyer to select specific colors, like skin tones, to create a matte and make adjustments. You can even draw custom Power Windows™ to rotoscope parts of an image for targeted corrections.
