Just as you wouldn’t hop in a Formula-1 racer to learn basic driving skills, you shouldn’t expect to be able to operate a sophisticated color grading tool by jumping in to fix a complex issue without first learning the basics of Resolve and the basic principles of color grading.

Color grading is not just about the look of your video, it has underlying science and standards that a colorist can’t ignore, and Resolve has tools and techniques that aren’t just intuitive like cutting picture and sound.

So, for you to be successful at grading and matching these types of clips, you either to learn color grading principles in general, and the Resolve app, or you’ll need to hire someone who is. And, the only way for you to learn these things is to learn Resolve and grading by starting at the beginning and learning via tutorials, which are all over YouTube and the internet.
