'In-Camera' Grading - Fix it Before Post!
Using an ARRI AMIRA and a Sony F55 DoP Ben Turley and DIT James Marsden will demonstrate the options available to 'grade' in-camera and the 'hows' and 'whys' of achieving the desired results.
Ben's topics will cover:
Matrix Adjustments - what do they actually do / mean?
LUTs- what can they do that matrices can't?
What can matrices (and other conventional adjustments) do that LUTs can't?
Modern wide dynamic range cameras and how to squeeze a quart into a pint pot (8-bit and 10-bit).Log recording - advantages and disadvantages.
Noise in log - both a reality and a red herring. How much noise is too much?
Applying standard looks / LUTs for monitoring.
The meaning of the shape of gamma / transfer curves and 'correct' exposure.
Colour space transforms and gamuts. Why is LC709A / Arri's Rec709 forgiving under mixed lighting?
'Baking in' with Sony - simpler workflow than log.
Advantages and disadvantages.
Freebie tools for creating LUTs (Sony Raw Viewer, Sony Catalyst, DaVinci Resolve Lite, Arri Look File Creator, LUTCalc
Somewhat less free tools (Adobe Speedgrade, DaVinci Resolve)
Colourists - LUT choice and leaving them scope to play!
James will cover:
The work of the DIT
The origins of log record and colour spaces
The views of editors and colourists
