Tyhis course is about one of the most popular topics in the world of color grading; grading under a print film emulation.

Cullen Kelly will walk you through the entire process of grading under prints in this 1-hour and 20-minute training series.

In the first part, he will show you how to select the correct emulation and set it up properly. Then, he will move on to cleanly tailor and tune the emulation and finally teach how to effectively grade underneath it.

Thanks Cullen! Is there any reason behind choosing ACES AP0 vs AP1? I've heard that AP0 is mainly for storage and archival since it's a massive gamut. It also produces more muted colors than AP1.

Thank you.  As a former timer in the old film days on my trusted Hazeltine,  I can't help think that grading under an PFE is far more restrictive in a creative sense, your thoughts on this? Additionally, whats the pros & cons on setting your color management/science at the project level verses in the node structure?

We shoot a lot of RED Komodo where I work. What would be your Tone Mapping and Gamut Mapping settings when going from 
Input Color Space - REDWideGamutRGB, Input Gamma - RedLog3G10 to Output Color Space - ARRI Wide Gamut 3, Output Gamma - ARRI LogC3

Thanks in advance.
