    New video tutorial out!

    Hi Everyone! After having used the last years to discuss color grading with the best colorists in the world, seen many different approaches, techniques and ways to build grades, we thought it was a good idea to create a video tutorial series and share some of the techniques and insight we have learned. We landed on doing scripted (pre-written) tutorials. That means we can concentrate the content, be far more to-the-point, make them shorter and avoid wasting your time with distractions. The first one is about silver retention (bleach bypass) and is available for our premium members in the insight sectiom right now! I hope you like it!

    1080p or 1080i50

    Most dramas, features and commercials are shot progressive, but transmitted in an interlaced environment at the end. The common workflow is to work progressive through the entire pipeline, but to change the project settings to 1080i50 before final output. You will not experience any field issues because they will be duplicates of each other, but as mentioned above, you can benefit from the interlacing on some animated effects like end crawls and transitions if those are added after the timeline change.

    Image degrade

    On the shot below I've used "Sharpen Edges" with increased edge mask strength and decreased edge blur, combined with some customized grain.

    Band of Brother article out!

    HBO's Band of Brothers has inspired colorists for years and the look has been copied numerous times since it was released in 2001. DI colorist @Stuart Fyvie worked on the team with Luke Rainey (RIP) coloring this award-winning show, and two years ago (!) he wrote a story for us that we want to share with you today. This story is big, never told before, full of insight and tech-talk. It's really a must-read. Thank you Stuart!
  8. Hi everyone! We are setting up a virtual feed from C3 to our suites for an upcoming set look session. This feed is received through the Streambox Media Player on Windows and it works perfectly. But we want to extend the display monitor view to a HDMI monitor connected to a Q M2000 card, is that possible? It's not possible to run the signal through any external output devices such as a Decklink on Windows.
  9. E IZO's HDR reference monitor, ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3145 will be their new flagship. It will compete with Sony BVM-X300 (HDR) and Dolby PRM-4220 (HDR) but probably be cheaper. 31.1" 4096 x 2160 resolution High dynamic range 1000 cd/m2 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio

    A great tool for video review and approval. Notation tools allow for comments to be made directly on top of videos by team members and clients, with the ability to point to a specific area of the frame.

    CineXinsert overwrites changes to files that you’ve already exported. This means that if there’s a mistake or a problem, you can overwrite the change instead of going back to your editing software and re-exporting the whole file again. 1495USD for the preferred plan, but they have a free version with some limitations.
