Denver Riddle of Color Grading Central & Color Finale Launches Dedicated Membership Grading Site, with Freebies On Joining.

Feature film colorist, trainer and software developer Denver Riddle has launched his radically revamped Color Grading Central website, Facebook public group and newsletter, and is offering US$289.00 worth of free movie editing looks LUTs and presets as reward for taking out membership by clicking the “Get Started” button at upper right of most pages.

The join-up package includes Luster Grade Presets, Mr Riddle’s own personal library of custom grading looks, cineLook with Gorilla Grain and Luster Film Burns, a package of 30 organic film burns and light leaks for adding some analog-style rawness to your work. Also included are samplers from two great LUTs ranges made by VisionColor, Impulz Basic and M31, a version of the by-now classic though sometimes controversial orange-teal look.

Color Grading Central has become best known recently for its Color Finale color grading plug-in for Final Cut Pro, bringing many of the features you would expect from a high-end grading package like Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve 12 into Final Cut Pro X. Mr Riddle offers an in-depth paid-for Resolve training package as well as free training in Color Finale via a Hollywood feature film that he recently graded, ‘Just Let Go’.

Membership of the new Color Grading Central website has its rewards, including receiving these LUTs and presets for use in Final Cut Pro X, Adobe After Effects, Photoshop (which is also great for editing smaller motion projects), Premiere Pro, DaVinci Resolve 12 and other NLEs and color grading software packages.

Needless to say I joined up and, looking over the long list of notables who have done the same thing, appear to be in very good company.

Looks like some good things are on their way from Color Grading Central in the ongoing development of Color Finale, now that the plug-in will be supporting X-Rite’s incredibly useful new video-specific colour charts, ColorChecker Passport Video and ColorChecker Video.
