DaVinci Resolve In-Depth Training

For those interested in delving deeper into capabilities and features of Blackmagic’s DaVinci Resolve color grading system, MEWShop is now offering two extensive workshops led by International Colorist Academy (ICA) Co-Founder & Instructor Warren Eagles:

  • ICA 101: An Introduction to Colorist Strategies with DaVinci Resolve - January 23 - 25, 2012
  • ICA 201: Advanced Colorist Strategies with DaVinci Resolve - January 26 - 27, 2012
  • Warren's Looks with Resolve January 28, 2012

An introduction to Resolve Mac V8 software, ICA 101: An Introduction to Colorist Strategies with DaVinci Resolve will take place on January 23 - 25, 2012 and is ideal for first time users – no previous knowledge of color grading or Resolve experience necessary.  The class mixes the operational side of Resolve with some practical real world training on workflows, basic color theory, grading approaches, and techniques.  The class is ICA certified with all students getting a certificate upon completion. 

Ideal for current Resolve Colorists and assistant operators looking to learn advanced techniques using the V8 software and DaVinci Resolve control surface, ICA 201: Advanced Colorist Strategies with DaVinci Resolve on January 26 - 27, 2012, takes a deeper look into the DaVinci Resolve workflow.  Students are encouraged to bring their own material so Warren and the other students can grade and discuss the different formats and challenges they present. 

Our one-day workshop Warren's Looks with Resolve on January 28, 2012, will give students great insight into how famous looks and styles are created. This is a general class so is not grading system independent so all welcome.  We will learn how to create the traditional “Looks” but will also work on how to make new “Looks” to suit your workflow even if you don’t have million dollar budgets. Students are encouraged to bring their own footage.

About DaVinci Resolve

Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve is the world’s highest performance color correction solution for Mac OS X and Linux computers.  DaVinci Resolve supports more real time color correction than any other system because it’s not limited by the performance of the computer it’s running on.  DaVinci Resolve eliminates this performance barrier because its based on a cluster of high performance GPU cards, so all processing is always real time.  DaVinci Resolve has the power of a true real time performance solution so handles complex color grades even when using dozens of primaries, secondaries, Power Windows™, multi point tracking, blurs, and more.  DaVinci Resolve provides incredible performance in a low cost solution can then easily upgrade by adding extra GPU’s for supercomputer power to handle 4K resolutions, stereoscopic 3D and real time grading direct from raw camera files such as ARRI raw and RED raw R3D files can be handled with ease.
