2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Ryan P on Feb. 2 2012
Format: Paperback
First off, DO NOT listen to the review by John Cook that gives this book 1 star. This book is for PROFESSIONAL color correction, and not for "amateur videographers". Sorry John, but to do color grading properly, you really do need to buy quality equipment, which is expensive. Alexis is just telling it how it is; there's really no way around it. I am the President of Production at a studio turning out both feature films and television series, and I can tell you that you DO NOT want to submit a final master to a broadcaster that has been poorly graded... This book simply was just not meant for you.

Moving on.

If you're a new colorist or a Post professional looking to add a grading skillset to your bag of tricks, then this is the book for you. I bought it because our new DaVinci Resolve system has captivated me, and I wanted to understand more about the technology and underlying principles of grading we use every day. This book has all of the answers I was looking for, and I feel much more confident sitting in (or sometimes taking over) the grading sessions we run for the projects I create and oversee. About a dozen professional colorists recommended this same book to me as a 'bible' of sorts, and they weren't wrong. This has everything from how to set up your grading suite (hardware, paint colors, lighting, work surfaces) to how to use the specific software packages currently available. Pick it up; you won't regret it.

One caveat: as poor John found out, this is for professionals only (or REALLY well-financed amateurs). Alexis is not going to tell you how to make your wedding videos look like feature films, or how you can avoid spending thousands of dollars on a grading suite by a quick visit to Best Buy - if that was possible, believe me we'd all do it...

Color correction Book, if you are really willing to learn the basics, color theory and how actually the entire color correction/grading workflow works. If you are looking for a tutorial that will guide you step by step on how to use a 3 way color correction board or something like that, you may find a tutorial like book instead. This is intended for a professional use, meaning someone with more understanding of terms.

All your answers in this book. Of course, your need to have a good video card and a very good monitor to see the difference...

Poorly written. This handbook is verbose with no insight provided. Waste of time.
