Just For Laughs

Shoot Your Friends: Color Grading Masterclass

Shoot Your Friends is back with another episode! This time we let you in on the secret of color grading. Your friends will ask, “Why do your movies look so great? Did you get a new camera?” And you will laugh at them for not knowing the secret! Do not laugh too hard though, or you will hurt their feelings. Instead, show them this handy video. Many of you have asked us for tutorials, so we have created a webseries to do just that! Every few weeks we will explore an important facet of movie production, whether it’s a VFX tutorial, or a lesson on tricks to do with your camera. Next up, I think we will talk about bullet hits. We just need to find a bunch of machine guns first. music: incompetech

    How would you work with videos that have a lot of shots with and without FX?
    Would you color grade each shot, then add in the effects, then put it all together?
    Add the effects, color grade then put it all together?
    Or put it all together, add the effects, color grade, then render it out again?

    How does one obtain apple color 1.5? It appears to have been merged with Final Cut Pro X, and I can’t find a download link to the standalone version that doesn’t link to the FCPx site, where there isn’t a DL link. Any suggestions on where to get it? Or are the color grading tools in AE/PP good enough?
