THE FILM LOOK [ is more than colour grading ]

In this tutorial, I go through step by step how to create a "film" look. Once contrast and colour are done, it's time to add film grain and nice highlight bloom/glow. All of these techniques can be adapted and used in DaVinci Resolve. To download the original 5K RAW clip in its native RED format, check out the new DOWNLOADS section at the top of the page :)

SET THE SUN [ creative luma key tutorial ]

In this tutorial we use a Luma Key to help sell the effect that the sun is behind the clouds. From there, it's color correction using secondaries as per usual ;) For a more believable glow, try adding a second SUN layer underneath the original sun layer and add a SMOOTH BLUR filter to it. Then, use a YUV Curve on the blurred sun to adjust it's glow intensity. Download a small section of the 4K RAW clip now from the above DOWNLOADS section :)

FREE TUTORIALS

Below you will find an increasing number of tutorials that I have created for YOU! My teaching style is quite loose and unstructured and I tend to go off on tangents here and there, so please bare with me as I get to my point...some of these are over 45 minutes long! In future I will be creating tutorials that explore other powerful and useful programs like DaVinci Resolve, RED Cine-X, After Effects and more. Stay tuned :)

SEARCH TIP: If you are looking for a tutorial that is not imediately visable in the blog, try searching the same criteria that is inside of the [ description brackets ] For example, search "edius colour" or "edius transparency".
