There are some rather mad people on the Internet. And they don’t get much madder than the folks at Syrp Lab. But building a DaVinci Resolve style system of colour grading in Microsoft Excel isn’t quite as crazy as it might first appear. You see, under the hood, DaVinci Resolve is essentially just running some maths when it changes the colour of your images. Maths is all Excel does, too.
The Excel work shown in the video essentially allows you to see what DaVinci Resolve, and similar grading apps are doing under the hood. The maths behind the madness of colour grading. It helps you to understand exactly what each tool in the grading palette – Lift, Gamma, Gain and just about every other control – is doing. Ultimately, it helps you to become better at colour grading.
