DaVinci Resolve: Color Correction


Austin School of Film is proud to announce that we are now the first DaVinci Resolve 15 Certified Training Partner for in-classroom training in all of the Southwest! This certified course is perfect for both new and experienced editors who would like to learn DaVinci Resolve Color Correction.

This hands-on training course guides students through a series of practical exercises that teach you how to use DaVinci Resolve’s color correction tools. The workflow based lessons begin with primary tools and scopes for balancing images. Next, you’ll learn how to use secondary tools for more targeted and creative corrections so you can make your own Hollywood caliber grades!

FUN FACT: the most groundbreaking Oscar-nominated films of 2019 (including A Star is Born, Bohemian Rhapsody, and Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War) all used DaVinci Resolve 15 for post-production, in conjunction with other Blackmagic Design products like the URSA Mini Pro— a camera we cover in our HD Camera Basics course!
