Vegas Pro Color Correction and Color Grading Tutorial Roundup

Vegas Pro Color Correction and Color Grading Tutorial Roundup

First, we’ll start out with Vegas Pro Color Correction since you’ll do a color correction before you will grade your footage.

What is the difference between color correction and color grading? It seems like the words are used interchangeably in loose chat about projects. While there is cross-over with software and plug-ins which are used for both purposes, there is a fundamental difference in the processes and the terms are not interchangeable.

Color correction is used to make the colors more accurate by fixing white balance, black levels, saturation, contrast, etc. It is also used to match shots and elements in compositing. Color correction can even go into stabilizing flicker problems in the footage. To sum it up, always color correct your footage before color grading your footage.

Color grading is used to give style and an artistic look to footage and set the mood or tone. Sci-fi films tend to have crushed blacks and bluer tones. Romance movies may have warmer tones and a softer color palette. Action films often have saturated and contrasting colors.

In conclusion, we’ve collected a few tutorials Vegas Pro Color Correction and on Color Grading.
