Grading

Grading

Grading means working with material in .raw format. Usually the material comes from expensive cameras, its strong point being the opportunity to later manipulate it to get the necessary contrast in shadows and light. It can be changed and not lose its quality, it may remain dark during grading itself, but it makes the raw picture working material.
