  1. Tyler Roth Company 3, TVC color grading

    Want to know how it looks like when Tyler Roth, senior colorist at Company 3 grades a TVC? We recorded a remote grading session (screen only) and made 6 short edits for you. Click here or go to our video menu.
  2. Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones! I just want to thank you for being passionate and dedicated colorists, and for sharing your knowledge with our community. It's been a great first year for us, with more than 1500 registered users, many engaging discussions in the forums, content creation and site development. We have already started recording grading sessions and making high-end video content that will be our main focus next year. A big THANK YOU for helping Lowepost on its way to be the number one colorist community. We couldn’t do it without you. Warmest regards, Stig
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Copy inspector settings

    Inspector attributes can be copied by selecting and copying (ctrl+c) the main clip and then right-clicking the target clip choosing paste attributes.
  6. 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!
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. Want to write reviews?

    Lowepost is looking for tech experts that would like to write product reviews in exchange for products. PM or Thanks, Stig
  10. Wipster

    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.
  11. CineXinsert

    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.

    Upload, review, & share video with your entire team, anywhere in the world. Your files will preview beautifully on the web.
  13. Lowepost, List of color books

    Hi Everyone! We have finally managed to build the review system, and first out is the list of color books! Please feel free to write a review and rate books you have read. If you're logged in, you can also suggest books you think others will enjoy. The list can be found in the resource section or by clicking this link Feel free to share the news!
  14. AAF import links to proxy files

    Disable "automatically import source clips into media pool" and enable "link to source camera files" when loading the AAF into the Media Pool.
  15. The Art and Technique of Digital Color Correction (2nd)

    Steve Hullfish is a great teacher, and this was one of the first books I read about color grading. A must-read for everyone interesting in learning the craft.
