About the Event

Creative Color Science II Masterclass

Instructor: Cullen Kelly

The goal of this course is to introduce the intermediate creative color science practitioner to a variety of advanced concepts and methodologies, allowing them to find a personal and intuitive approach to complex look development. 

At the conclusion of the course, participants will have simultaneously deepened and simplified their creative process, and discovered new horizons for further exploration and study.

As in Creative Color Science I, course work will take place in the Davinci Resolve Fusion page, with greater emphasis on using the Custom Tool node to mathematically construct tools and transforms.

Session 1

Going deeper with matrices

Luminance preservation strategies

Neutrals preservation strategies

Creating a “curves matrix”

Adding input terms to create more interesting transformations: inverses, powers, and cross products

Session 2

Deriving and manipulating non-RGB channels

The many uses of a luminance channel

Common formulas for deriving luminance

Calculating and and utilizing a saturation channel

Understanding chroma vs. saturation

Common formulas for deriving saturation
