Ive watched countless tutorials but i still feel a bit lost. Basically, where should i start with color correction? Do i go through all the clips, sorting out the white balance etc? What do i do first is what im asking i guess!
Cause at the moment ive gone through all the clips in this music video im doing, ive duplicated all of them on top of each other & am using the Screen composite mode, cause it seemed to help! Then i have a 3-way colour corrector on both the top & bottom clips. Ive played around with the colour wheels loads, doing some quite harsh corrections on many of the clips to try & make it look cool. But its got to the point where i just feel lost in a sea of parameters & colour & i cant get anything to match properly from clip to clip.
So yeah, what should i do first when colour correcting, & what is the usual process from intial colour correction through to grading?
When I color correct I use the 3-way color corrector. If I have more time/budget I go into a Color Grading application like Color or DaVinci. They are amazing! To get an idea check out this reel I did: Color Grading Example
