Color correction is the part of the post-production process where you balance all your clips to neutralize colors and get a uniform look to all the shots. Without color correction, your sequence can look disjointed and mismatched. This is different than color grading, in which you deliberately pull the look of the clips away from the natural and true to give them a stylized look to help sell the setting or mood.
Although this sounds like a complex process, the basics are easy to understand! In this short course, you will learn the basics of color correction for video. You will learn about what footage works best and what doesn't, what sorts of effects are used to adjust footage, and the steps of the process. You’ll also see a few demos of color correction in action! By the end of this course, you will be able to adjust exposure, fix white balance, and fix color cast issues.
