Color Grading from Beginner to Advanced in Final Cut Pro X

via Skillshare


Take your colour grading to the next level in Final Cut Pro!!

If you've ever felt lost when it comes to colour work, I feel your pain! I know the struggle:

  • online tutorials that conflict or don't tell the whole story

  • not knowing where to start or what makes footage look good

  • unnatural skin tones

  • applying a LUT to find that it looks bad

I've designed this course to resolve all this and more. This is all the knowledge I wish I knew when I started out with video, (too) many years ago.

In this course, you'll get:

  • Step-by-step workflow giving you a structured approach to get pro results

  • A solid understanding of the tools and scopes featured in Final Cut Pro

  • Where to get the best free LUTs, and more importantly, how to get the best from any LUT

  • The knowledge to create your own looks in FCPX

Hope to see you in there!
