  1. Hi! I really like what the Autochrome function does to skin tones but it changes the other colors too much, so played around with sixvector, saturation vs lightness and keys to recreate it but i'm not getting there. Does anybody got some tips or is there a way to combine it with a key or something? -best Valentin
  2. Emily, thank you very much for your time an tips, you really helped me on this!!
  3. Ah ok, thanks a lot. Can you recommend an Article/Blog/Video on this to get a deeper insight?
  4. Hi Emily, Thank you for your answer. Yeah, I really need to start using the curves more. Also, about the right brightness and contrast, i always have the feeling that this digital vibe comes from clean or too bright highlights. May you have a look and give some input?

  6. Hi, I’m a young colorist from Austria and I’m currently working in one of the biggest postproduction-facilities here as a Junior Colorist. I’m working with a lot of Alexa material and find it really hard to get rid of that digital feeling (I think its something about the highlights, but I’m not sure). On this page and a lot of other sources, I’m always reading how Colorist solve this problem by using their inhouse Luts. Also Steve Yedlin, Stefan Sonnenfeld, Tom Poole, Walter Volpatto and many others are talking about Luts and how they use them. I’m aware that good lighting and Set Design are really important to get a filmic look, and with well lit scenes it really seems to be easier, but even when I watch some Low-Budget-American movies their grading style seems to be much better and filmic than major productions in Austria. Also, I think Walter Volpatto talks about how he works on making digital images more filmic and how their Color-Scientists help them create specific luts for specific films but in Austria we have no Color-Scientist. Damn Color-Scientist!! I don’t want to beg for Luts or anything, I just want to ask if the Pro-Colorists use Luts like Filmconvert, Linny, Impulz, Koji, or if they really have their own hand-crafted „Pro“ Luts which helps them achieve that kind of grades. For example movies like „The Nice Guys“ or „White Boy Rick“ looks incredible filmic but are shot on Alexa so I ask myself if that kind of look is possible just by grading, or do you need some special manipulation with other software or Luts. As I said, i don't want to beg or find the easy solution instead of practicing. I'm just curious. Best regards, Valentin
