Grading a music video with Resolve 9

Inside a grade – Renaissance Style

Tristan Kneschke has a great post detailing his grading process on a Renaissance style rap video for ‘Killer Mike’ in DaVinci Resolve 9. Tristan helpfully details all of the prep work that’s involved in a client attended grading sessions as well as providing some lovely big screen captures of his grades, so be sure to click on the images throughout the post to get a closer look. You can also watch the final video in the post.

It would be great to see a video based breakdown of some of these shots, turning on the nodes layer by layer so you can see in real time what effect each node is having, but the big images are enough to go on. For more great colour studies check out Tristan’s site.
