5 top tips to getting the grade you want
Tom Russell Generally speaking, a grade session can be broken down into two distinct parts - managing the people involved and managing the grade itself.

Is it time to review your colour grading toolset?
Mark Brindle

One important step for all budget levels of post-production is the colour correction or grading tools you use to match the colour of different shots in your edit, to give a consistent look and feel. How much time you can spend on grading will depend on your budget, but if you can perform more tasks in less time with better and cheaper tools, then perhaps you should be looking at your workflow?

Only a few years ago, color correction suites were isolated rooms that were nearly impossible to connect to other offices or artists. But the color world has changed and geography no longer has to separate color artists from their clients.
