Creative Color Grading with Apple Color
Color grading is an essential part of every project and Apple Color
brings you the toolset to give your footage the final shine. You
deserve more than "button pushing" training, so Creative Color Grading
with Apple Color takes you beyond the basics of "how" and into the
"what" and the "why" of color grading. The aim of this course is to
take you through the process of problem-solving and designing various
grades that match the issues people face when working with Apple
Color. These include working with difficult footage, matching the
narrative needs of the footage with color design and mastery of the
ColorFX Room and LUTs.

Creative Color Grading with Apple Color focuses, of course, on Apple
Color. Although their are small trips into Adobe Photoshop, this
software is not needed. All footage and Color Projects (where
appropriate) are included so you can follow along at your own pace.
