Hopefully this video wasn't too hard to follow along to, especially for those that are new to Davinci Resolve. I'd definitely recommend for you to first go the free route and see what you can do without having to spend money, then you can decide if you want to invest into a film emulation tool.

Beautiful as always. Also, very, very informative. Thanks for breaking it down in so many ways. For someone who’s interested in getting started with coloring in Resolve, where would you recommend someone start?

You're the man dude! Was so excited for this video to be published. I'll start experimenting with the free version and maybe get one of the paid ones as well.
Since I'm not that experienced with davinci, it was sometimes hard to keep up with what you were doing with the nodes. Luckily this is yt and I can rewatch everything. Incredible work man, loved the footage

Great tutorial, explanation and demonstration of all the techniques. I purchased Dehancer a long time ago and it was a game changer.

Really great workflow, I can tell you put a ton of time and thought into your powergrade

For those looking for a from scratch tutorial, it starts at 7:20 :)

Also, If there are enough of y’all that are on Premier pro, Final Cut Pro, etc., I can work on also selling the LUT by itself and converting my looks into a lut pack. So let me know if that would be something a lot of you all would be interested in!

Edit: the LUT pack is now available in my store!

I have a question for Davinci users on grading an entire video. I use premiere and make a base color edit on an adjustment layer( Entire sequence), then individually tweak clips if I have to. All the davinci videos I've seen just edit individual clips. What is your workflow to edit an entire video with clips that may have different WB or maybe two different cameras where the setting may have been different? Im trying to move over to davinci for color grading.

Great video, I've been finding myself coming back to this video when I grade my stuff. May I ask what is the source footage the samples you showed at around 5:36 mark? Thank you

Will you make a premiere version as well?:)

What would a super high quality 35mm or 70mm IMAX film stock LUT look like? What would you do to replicate that look?

Great job with the Power grade! We all love that film look 😉

I bought your film vision pack with your LUT and the POWERGRADE. I am really happy with my purchase, you did an excellent job on creating this nostalgic 16mm-feeling. Cheers!

Hi, Congrats for the great video. Is there any way to use your Film Vision Powergrade with an HDR output grade? How?
