Been messing around a bit with Apple’s new Final Cut Pro X? Also been playing with shooting more video? Well one thing that can easily separate the ‘men from the boys’ is knowing about color grading. Color grading is not just correcting bad color or changing colors here and there–it’s SO much more and can really step up your game if done correctly. FCPX’s new color correction features are amazing and can do a lot. The tricky part might be learning it right the first time and not having to piece together an education. This is where Color Grading Central comes in.
I stumbled across this website and proceeded to fall in love! Not only is the content incredibly informative, but is laid out and presented in a structured, easy-to-learn way. I find a lot of online instruction to be boring, too long, and incredibly disorganized. The folks at Color Grading Central have all of this really dialed in–oh, and the 15 part series is FREE! Here’s the link to the entire series: FCPX Grading Tutorials
Here’s the first video in the series–all VERY interesting!
