Color Grading with DaVinci Resolve

I mentioned a while back on the JHP Facebook page that I had purchased a Dell Precision T7400 workstation and have been messing around with Windows 7 a little bit. One of the main reasons why I did this is because I wanted to run DaVinci Resolve, but a Mac that you can stick a decent graphics card in is stupid expensive. The Dell is in it's infancy, but I have been grading a few samples with it. Below is some footage that I shot last spring in Sheboygan, WI. Nothing fantastic, but you can see the power that comes with using a dedicated grading package like Resolve. The first video is a before/after split and the second one is the graded footage. You can see that I over exposed some of the shots, but the end result shows some of that sky detail pulled back.

More to come. -J.H.
