Cinematic grading is a technique used in film and video production to adjust the color, contrast, and other visual elements of a shot or sequence to create a specific look or feel. This is typically done using specialized software tools, such as color grading software, which allows the filmmaker to fine-tune the appearance of the footage in order to achieve the desired aesthetic effect. Cinematic grading is an important part of the post-production process, and is often used to create a cohesive visual style for a film or TV show, or to enhance the emotional impact of a particular scene. Some common uses of cinematic grading include correcting exposure and white balance issues, enhancing the contrast and color saturation of the footage, and creating specific color palettes or “looks” that are associated with certain genres or moods.
