Our look at DaVinci Resolve 17 continues with an overview of the Color page for color grading. It is no exaggeration to say that color grading in DaVinci Resolve is considered state-of-the-art. But, both Premiere and Final Cut have excellent color grading tools, what makes Resolve better? The answer is the depth and power of its tools.

In this session, Larry Jordan covers:

  • Using XML to transfer projects from Premiere Pro or Final Cut Pro to Resolve
  • The Color page interface
  • The video scopes in Resolve
  • Using the color wheels to make primary color changes
  • Using selection tools to make secondary color changes
  • Moving graded projects from Resolve back to Premiere and FCP

If you want to boost your color grading skills, or are simply curious about what Resolve can do, this webinar is for you.


This is an intermediate-level session. While no knowledge of Resolve is necessary, it will help if you know something about video editing or color grading.
