Check Filmconvert here (and get 10% off):
Let’s talk about my color grading workflow in DaVinci Resolve 18. I’ve received many questions about Resolve 18, whether my workflow changed, how I like it if it’s stable if it’s worth upgrading. So, I figured to get back into the tutorial game.

I wanted to increase the quality of these tutorial videos, so I included some color theory that was essential for this shoot.

Hopefully, you find it useful. Make sure to let me know in the comments!
