Find out how to perform a basic color grade, create looks, mask footage, and apply grades to multiple clips, and see how SpeedGrade fits into your overall post-production workflow.
- [Voiceover] Hey, my name is Chad Perkins, I'm the author of the books The After Effects Illusionist and How to Cheat in After Effects, as well as an award winning filmmaker and producer. I believe that color correction in video is of epic importance. It's the fastest and least expensive way to add massive amounts of production value. Coloring footage also helps makes it look more like a cinematic event, not just some home movie recording. Adobe SpeedGrade is one of the best tools in the world for using color to tell a story.
In this training we'll dig into SpeedGrade from the bottom up. We'll get familiar with the interface and the workflow, and then start making basic color corrections and fixing color problems as well. But this course is not just a technical review of what the buttons do. We're going to get into the artistic side of color correction. Changing a shot from bright daylight to darker sunset. We'll also look at how to change the mood with color, taking a regular old shot and making it look like it came straight out of a Hollywood horror movie.
This is going to be a blast, so let's get started learning Adobe SpeedGrade.
