What Is Color Grading? The Special Touch Your Video Needs to Look Great

Read Time:1 minLanguages:

Color grading is a creative process where you make choices about the color temperature, exposure and saturation of your video clips. Applying these can set the tone for your video production.

Color grading always follows color correction.  While color corrections are neutral adjustments that are designed to bring your footage to "good enough", grading is a truly creative skill. You'll make decisions about saturation, contrast, and hue as a part of the grading process.
