  1. You will have to change input color space to match the camera, in your case the Sony. The timeline color space can still be Arri Log C because you don't want your controls to behave different each time you're working with a new camera format.
  2. The input color space should be set to the camera color space which in this case is Alexa Log C because Alexa footage is used in the example. When it comes to the timeline color space in general, it only affects the "feel" of the controls, so it's purely a matter of taste. From our understanding Alexa Log C is definitely the most common timeline color space used in the professional world and especially among Baselight users.
  3. Thanks @James Lakey. We have seen this particular setup a couple of times, but you will quite different results by playing around in the same area, shifting hue angles and adjusting the strengths. The combination of dialing in extreme colors and mapping them to the tonal range by adjusting the strength is an extremely powerful technique that allows numerous of looks, but it can take some time to get used to. This is just an example. When it comes to hitting the numbers in general in all the lessons it's because we have walked through the lessons several times prior to recording and don't want to waste your time "experimenting on screen".
  4. We are not referring to order of operations inside of nodes at 04:09 in lesson 08. Th difference is that we are dialing in exposure AFTER the color adjustments and not the other way around as seen in all the other lessons. This is because we want to demonstrate the impact brightness and contrast adjustments has on color and the reason why we encourage you to do it the other way around.
  5. The first node will be optimized for the key operation only, and you don't necessarily want to build your grade on that. That's why you want to keep it separate from the main stream and leave it as a constant source to pull keys from.
  6. Hi Josh, Thanks for your kind words! @Jussi Rovanperä is right, it's the LUT that causes the shift in the other channels. When you watch any correction through any LUT, the relationship between the different color channels that the curve is made up by will influence the result. That means, by pushing one of the color channels through a LUT, the other two will be altered. The more aggressive the LUT is, the more of your correction will be altered. When you do a correction prior to a Film Emulation LUT, the result will be altered differently than in a pure Technical LUT because the relationship between the color channels that the curve is made up by is different. This is even true when adjusting the exposure only. Some LUTs will push more cold colors into the blacks when you lower the brightness, while others will push more warm colors into the highlights when you do the same thing. This is what we in the course refer to when we say that your corrections will expand and compress based on the shape of the curve. It's important to understand the relationship between the correction you do and the LUT you work under, also when it comes to exposure alone. This is the way color timers worked back in the days as the signal would be altered depending on what film stock (LUT in a digital world) it was watched through. This workflow is adapted in the high-end post facilities and is considered the purest and most natural way to correct an image.
