Hi Brian,

This one had me stumped for a while too. Shot Matcher matches the color from your primary playhead, to the clip under your secondary playhead.

So you need to first create a secondary playhead, park that over the clip you want to receive the color match, park the #1 playhead over the clip from which you want to take the color data, select the #2 playhead, then click the shot matcher button.

It will not work unless there is a second playhead, and that playhead is active (highlighted orange).

Awesome Mike! Thanks.

I've been using Davinci Resolve Lite, but liked how speed grade integrated with PPro and AE... thinking of diving in more!

Good luck to you. I find Resolve a little more intuitive than SpeedGrade (especially as of version 9), but once you get the hang of SG, it's a pretty powerful piece of software.

It's absolutely worthwhile to take a look at the manual, since a good deal of SpeedGrade's functions (like shot matching) don't necessarily work the way you might think, or are only accessible through keyboard commands.
