Adobe SpeedGrade: Getting Started
With Adobe’s recent acquisition of SpeedGrade, the high end color grading system, editors and colorists have been able to reach new heights in creating a finished image with the full intended range of color and contrast, without having to leave the Adobe ecosystem.
In this thorough guide to Adobe SpeedGrade, expert colorist and trainer Alexis Van Hurkman takes you step-by-step through the program with lesson files and media so you can follow right along. Once you have the basics down on the interface, customizing the UI, and SpeedGrade workflows, you’ll then be guided on setting up projects, creating primary corrections, using masks, adding secondary layers, scene balancing and copying grads, keyframing, reframing clips, applying effects and transforms, and then finishing off the project with your final render and output. Not only will you learn how use the features but also why you make certain choices so your clips look great, are in balance with one another, have suitable levels for broadcast, and are stylistically in line with the needs of the film or video project.
With Adobe SpeedGrade: Getting Started, you’ll be up and running with one of the best tools for color grading in no time!
