Color grading is taking what you have done in color correction one step further, by altering an image for aesthetic and communicative purposes. So once everything is looking nice and normal in your video, you are now empowered with the ability to further enhance your story by manipulating colors to create a new visual tone.
All videos utilize an additive color system, and the primary colors of this system are red, blue and green; and different colors are created through varying combinations of these three primary colors, though not necessarily in equal proportions. Color grading is performed by manipulating ranges of thresholds and tolerances within these three channels.
So, if you want to give your video that afternoon sun feel, you may then push your colors a little towards the red spectrum. And if you want to give your video a cooler atmosphere, then you’ll push those colors towards the blue spectrum.
To emphasize on certain types of moods or to achieve a certain look to tell the story, cinematographers make use of color grading. Some examples of color grading in television shows include History Channel’s Top Gear and movies like Resident Evil: Afterlife, The Matrix.
