Davinci Resolve 11 Color Match: Automate Color Correction

Davinci Resolve 11 released last week, including the free Lite version. One of the new features in this version that intrigues me most is the Color Match Palette. This essentially automatically color corrects your footage by matching a color chart (which you include in your video clip) and neutralizes the color as a starting point for further grading. One question that jumped to mind was whether this functionality could also recover your footage from light sources that have uneven chroma output like lower quality fluorescent and LED lights. In this episode, we give it a go with a clip shot under rather poor fluorescent lights. Color Match made quick work of the job, getting a pretty good neutral grade, but was not able to fully correct all colors—the poor quality lights, still impart their signature. http://youtu.be/onom8tpiof8
