Fusion Tools for Colorists – Building Color Page Grading Tools

December 18, 2023

There are useful Color Page grading tools that don't exist in Fusion. No worries, get guidance on creating them yourself.


Create Your Own LumaMix, Curves Tool, and RGB Mixer

In the second part of our series, we continue using tools you would normally reach for on the Color page – but on the Fusion page. This Insight is created for colorists, showing how to build your own custom Fusion macros to emulate LumaMix controls, an extended Curves tool, and an RGB-style mixer on the Fusion page.

Key takeaways from this Insight

By the end of this Insight, you should understand how to:

  • Use the Fusion Color Space node and the Custom Tool to build color correction tools.
  • Structure your own LumaMix, RGBMixer, and Lum vs Sat curve.
