25 March 2010 - 21:59#22: Color Correction Basics I – Laying the Groundwork

Show/Hide Embed Code

In this episode, we’ll lay the groundwork for episodes to come, talking about scopes, what they mean and why you should always pay attention to them.

Plus: Everyone who uses the Brightness and Contrast controls should seriously consider changing his profession.

Sorry guys, but I had to split the episode into two parts, because it was just too long. So this one may be a little dull, but it’s important. Next week, we’ll get started for real.

If you really want to learn about color correction, I strongly recommend Steve Hullfish’s “The Art and Technique of Digital Color Correction”
