RED Komodo Grade Reveal

The clip incorporates many of the techniques discussed in our Monster guide – the most comprehensive and up-to-date free resource on the Internet for HDR10 workflows in DaVinci Resolve Studio 18 that shows how to use false color to nail exposure every time; how to use HSL to selectively target problematic areas for the best noise reduction results; how to quickly balance shots/correct skin tones like professional colorists do; how to use split-toning to create color separation, one of the key components of the film look; ways to apply film grain to add texture; the secret to adding saturation for more cinematic results; project settings to use for P3-D65 ST2084; how to add MaxCLL and MaxFALL metadata to your videos; the best codecs for uploading to YouTube and much more! Film grain doesn’t travel well on YouTube, so if you’d like to get a better idea of what it really looks like, there’s a download link to the clip in the video description.
