5 Tips for Good Skin Tones in DaVinci Resolve 18

  1. Don’t key faces.
  2. Don’t try to correct skin tones using the tint and temperature sliders in the RAW controls.
  3. Grab a still before color correction and use the image wipe in the viewer to compare before/after as you make adjustments.
  4. Use Offset or the Global wheel in the HDR palette for correcting skin tones.
  5. Upload to YouTube using ProRes 4444 XQ, not HEVC.
