This is the first industry newsletter that I actually rush to my email on Sunday to check for. I have so much junk mail that never informs me of anything, but the Tao has seriously ignited my already burning crave to be a colorist.
Welcome to the Home of:
The Tao of Color Grading Newsletter
A weekly newsletter about the craft and business of Digital Color Grading.
Delivered for your Sunday morning coffee.
We value your privacy and never spam you

Issue #371: The IBC Color Cruise Edition
The Tao of Color Grading Newsletter
Curated links of news, reviews, thoughts, career advice, and humor
This Newsletter is on August hiatus and returns September 9 (the Sunday after the Labor Day holiday weekend). But I also have a full slate of articles I want to share that hadn't made recent Newsletters.
This edition is my August 'catch up' edtion. But it's more than that... it's the Edition where we officially launch ticket sales for the IBC Colorist Mixer!
IBC 5th Annual Colorist Mixer pre-sales are now open for all Newsletter readers!
Since this Newsletter is one of the organizers of the Colorist Mixer, we know the password that gets you early access to Mixer ticket sales!
There are a total of 30 tickets available to take a 1-hour cruise from the IBC convention center to the Colorist Mixer event. Tickets include dinner, drinks, and entry to the Mixer.
Ticket sales are fully open to the public on Monday (no password required). So if you're reading this on Sunday - get your tickets before they sell out!
See you in September.

[forum] The first non-Beta version of Resolve 15 is announced by the Resolve Product Manager on their official forum. Lots of details in here if you plan on updating. Plus the full list of new features.
With the official release of Resolve 15, I decided to update my 'How to Beta Test' guide with specific pointers on upgrading from previous versions of Resolve to an official non-Beta build. Yes. My guide is a little O.C.D. But that's for a reason!
If you're looking for a UHD User Interface display that has a reasonable chance of representing your color grade - and want it for under $1,000 - then this may be on your wish list. But I dispute that this is a competent HDR display.
If you update your AppleTV to osTV 12 Public Beta, what movies are available with ATMOS? On this page type 'Dolby' into the Audio Quality field. As of this writing, it's growing quickly (but doesn't surpass VuDu).
The new format is initially available on only Amazon-branded players - not on apps on 3rd party hardware. Thus, ensuring Amazon Prime continues to be the last streaming service I check when looking for content.
Who remembers back when all Netflix did was deliver DVDs (from lists you managed through a browser)? Amazing that they've navigated this transition. It has to be one of the best business stories of this century.
Th- th- th- that's all folks! See you next Sunday!
