Top New Features in SpeedGrade CC
The revolutionary new Shot Matcher automatically matches the colometry of the source image to the current clip. This can dramatically speed up the process of matching clips shots across scenes. Colin Smith demonstrates this powerful new tool, only available in SpeedGrade CC.
Luma Waveform Display
The new Luma Waveform Display in SpeedGrade CC provides detailed information about your image, representing either the overall luminance of the different parts of the frame, or a breakdown of the RGB channels. This information makes it easy to balance your blacks, whites, and colors.
SpeedGrade .look files provide a simple way to save grades, which you can re-use, or modify, as much as you need. The new Look Manager in SpeedGrade CC is where you store and access Looks. In this tutorial, colorist Robbie Carman walks you through the process.
The Snapshot Browser in SpeedGrade CC allows you to save stills from your work to use as a reference. In contrast to .look files (which save a set of color correction instruction), the Snapshot Browser saves an image. You can load these still images to compare them side-by-side to the clips you’re working on. Robbie Carman shows you how it works.
One of the advantages of Creative Cloud is the availability of updates as soon as they’re released. This means that if you are already a Creative Cloud member, you already have SpeedGrade CC. Simply download the application when you want to start using these new features.
