Learn How To Color Correct
(with a 14-hour DaVinci Resolve 11 Tutorial Series)

DaVinci Resolve 11 Tutorials

Learn DaVinci Resolve while color correcting a music video across 14 hours of tutorials taught by a professional colorist.

 

Do you think color correction is confusing?

You’re not alone. Anyone who’s tried color correcting images go through the same problems: You randomly make changes in color wheels, push and pull sliders—hoping you get good results. And the work you did on Monday? It looks wrong on Tuesday. Grrr…

And it doesn’t matter if you’re working in Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, Avid or DaVinci Resolve—you keep running into the same problems and making the same mistakes… time and time again.

Does DaVinci Resolve looks super-complicated?

DaVinci Resolve is the world-wide leader in color correction software but at version 11, it has a TON of features. Do you know which are the important features to learn now?

Stop feeling and acting un-confident.
Develop your color correction workflow, tailored to DaVinci Resolve.

Learn a structured approach to color grading.

Embedded throughout this training are lessons on Colorist Lingo, image evaluation, using waveform monitors, shot matching and Look creation. Using unique DaVinci Resolve features  you’ll learn techniques for communicating more effectively with Directors, Producers and Cinematographers.

You’ll flow through DaVinci Resolve 11 as you’ll flow through a normal color correction job.

This beginner-to-intermediate training series will progress you logically through DaVinci Resolve. As you achieve new depths of understanding, our ‘In Action’ chapters will let you pause and apply your new knowledge to an actual music video—included as part of this training series.

Tailored for both the free and paid versions of Resolve.

It doesn’t matter if you’re working with the paid version of DaVinci Resolve or the freely downloadable version, you’ll be able to follow along. Very few features are specific to the paid version and when we talk about those features, we’ll explain them so free users can decide if they need to upgrade to the paid version.

At the end of this 14-hour series you’ll be confident color correcting and with DaVinci Resolve

Confidence that will show in the quality of your work and your interaction with clients.

Created for Professionals, by Professionals

MixingLight.com is a website created by three professional colorists. Between us we’ve had several decades of experience working with editors, directors, cinematographers, producers and their assistants.

You don’t need to repeat our mistakes.

We’ve made mistakes. Often with clients sitting next to us (usually with hard deadlines hanging over us). We do our best to teach you techniques and workflows that avoid our mistakes and make the craft of color grading much easier to execute.

We’ve also had a ton of successes – and you’ll learn techniques we apply every day, with real clients on real jobs. These techniques may have been born out of theory but they are battle-tested.

We speak ‘color grading’.

Having hearts of teachers, Team Mixing Light knows how to explain color grading. This Deep Insights training is the culmination of our careers. Patrick, your teacher on this title, doesn’t hold back any tips or tricks. If he thinks some kernel of truth is essential to teach you – it gets taught.

Learn the classic ‘Hero Shots Workflow’

Communicating color with clients is hard.

Colorists have come up with many ways to smooth the communication gap with our less color grading savvy peers.

DaVinci Resolve has many tools we can use to help us communicate effectively. But the most effective workflow uses a mix of features that are difficult to replicate in other pieces of software.

Learn the Hero Shots Workflow and communicate more effectively.

And it will help you communicate with other members of the creative team.

You’ll find and isolate Hero Shots to take a longer timeline and make it manageable. You’ll also discover how to explore different creative options with your client – without having to color correct the entire timeline… and then completely revise it. This workflow is effective not just for music videos.

It’s especially effective for longer format projects.

Once you learn this technique, you’ll be able to use it anytime you need to explore a variety of Looks across a range of scenes in a short period of time.

Other training series may talk about the Hero Shots Workflow.

DaVinci Resolve 11 Deep Insights teaches it in-depth.

There are a few hidden traps when executing this workflow and you’ll work through them as you learn DaVinci Resolve 11.

Learn the Hero Shots color correction workflow

There’s no better way to tackle a big or complicated color grading project than implementing the Hero Shots workflow. DaVinci Resolve is the perfect software to learn how to execute it.

What Others Are Saying . . .

I had been poking around the web for tutorials for weeks, but everyone seems to have their own little way of doing things so it made it hard to find comprehensive material for end to end workflow.

I’ve just begun scratching the surface in the training series but so far the videos have a great amount of detail yet are easy to follow.

I just wanted to say thanks for putting together such an incredibly comprehensive tutorial for Resolve 11. 

Kudos!

Although much of the Resolve 11 training was not new to me, it was a great opportunity to fine-tune the parts of the extremely broad Resolve feature set that I do not use on a regular basis.

The production value of the entire training series is extremely high – well done gentlemen.  I particularly appreciated the graphics which, I found to be very helpful in directing the eye to the appropriate part of the interface – at the appropriate part of the dialogue.

Patrick, I  first discovered you back in the days of Resolve 8 / In-Tents and have also purchased all of your training products to date. With your guidance/mentorship, I have learned more about the art/profession of being a colorist than I have from all of the other competing training products combined, that I have purchased elsewhere. 

I have [Resolve 11 Deep Insights] downloaded now.

I have a ton of things planned for today but I figured heck I’ll just poke around a bit and see what it’s like and then set aside some time to go through it more carefully. Then …..

 …..two hours later …… oh wow that’s cool… I had forgotten about that feature. NEAT – that’s right there IS a much easier way to do this or that – with Groups, and on and on  …. .LOL …..  

I found myself immersed in the course. 

You move along at a very nice pace and it’s so colorful and interesting.

I can see that you have continued to refine your delivery of difficult concepts in an easy to follow conversational approach that is indicative of your style of teaching. The course moves along at a smooth yet directive pace.  The work builds on itself yet each module is self standing. That’s not an easy balance to strike.
