    Hey guys,

    If you’re new to grading, here are some great VISUAL sources I have found which will aid you in learning this art form. They aren’t free but they are seriously the best resources I have found on this topic. If you know of any other resources on grading, please comment below & I’ll add it to the list 🙂

    First and foremost, before getting any videos tutorials etc, I highly recommend this book: Color Correction Handbook, it is known as THE book on colour grading!

    Ripple Training

    Color Grading Central

    Mixing Light

    Tao Of Color

    FXPHD Also has a bunch of courses on color grading & color theory. I’ve listed a couple of them below (courtesy of jqshen)

    FXPHD – Resolve 11 Fundamentals

    FXPHD – The Craft Of Color Grading I

    FXPHD – The Craft Of Color Grading II

    FXPHD – Camera Tech and Colour Science

    FXPHD – Introduction To Digital Color Theory

    I also recommend using DaVinci Resolve to do your grading as it is the most complete grading package out there. If you don’t have it, they even have a FREE version which has no real limitations other than no noise reduction, no stereoscopic grading, and max resolution of UHD. For more info on the differences between Lite vs paid version, click here

    Might I also add that fxphd has a Resolve 11 course as well, taught by colorist Warren Eagles of International Colorist Academy, he’s been doing Davinci Resolve courses with fxphd since 2007.

    fxphd also has a bunch of courses on colour science as well, taught by Charles Poynton.

    I think Denver Riddle’s resource from Color Grading Central is also a good catch.

    Great resources. If i want to improve my basic knowledge what course will you suggest me? The color grading central is a good place with good tutorials? Or is better to read the handbook of color correction?

    Thank you guys!

    Hey Marco! For the theory I suggest the handbook (a necessity in my opinion), and while I do like the ColorGradingCentral tutorials, I really recommend the training from rippletraining, its taught by the same guy that wrote the handbook (he also literally wrote the DaVinci Resolve manual), so he definitely knows his stuff! Basically, get anything by Alexis Van Hurkman, and you’re onto a winner (IMHO!). 😀
