  1. I'm grading a feature shot with the Canon C300 that used Canon Cinema Gamut/Log2. For my workflow I'm using DaVinci Color Managed with a Rec709 timeline, Canon Cinema Gamut/Log2 input color space, and no LUTs. For the most part it's fairly straight forward but there are several shots with a large dynamic range and I'm having an issue handling the highlights. To bring the highlights into legal range I'm using a mix of controls (gain, high soft, log), but by the time the highlights are in range I end up pushing the rest of the image to a range that I'm not happy with. Also, the brighter regions are really blue/magenta which is not pleasant. Wondering if anyone has experience working with Canon Log footage and could provide any insight.

  6. Alter Ego post in Toronto pairs their Baselight systems with calibrated LG OLED monitors. You can't use an LG consumer models for HDR mastering but they are a really great option for grading.
  7. I know there are some colorists who use Baselight Editions to grade entire projects within the AVID. One of the drawbacks though is that AVID prevents the plugin from playing back footage with the plugin window open. Other than that I believe all of the same tools are there. Craig
  8. I'm looking for a used and well-taken-care-of Tangent Element panel. Is anyone selling?
  9. Well, Fusion crashed which isn't surprising but now I can't reopen my project. The project opens on the Fusion page and I get the spinning wheel of death... forever. Does anyone have any insight or suggestions as to how I can get around that? Craig
  10. Hey, Abby. Could you explain how you do this?
  11. Great tutorial and looking forward to the remaining. I'm curious if you'll be covering the use of multiple shapes with tracking/perspective tracking? Many thanks.
  12. Getting an accurate calibration on an HP Dreamcolor is pretty much impossible. I've never seen two Dreamcolors next to each other that match. Better off getting an Eizo or FSI.

    Trish, your work is amazing. Thanks for sharing.
  14. Quick update: I was able to get a good track by expanding the tracking boxes like you suggested in the second video.
  15. Thanks, for this tutorial! Very helpful. I'm having a hard time getting a track and am wondering if it's a software issue or if I'm doing something wrong. I've attached a screen grab. I can get a solid result with only one tracker, but not more than one.
  16. Is it possible to monitor the output from Fusion via SDI?

    Excellent tutorials!
  18. One of the old greats and it's still looking awesome. I wish they still made them.
  19. Early days in my new room but loving it. Running an FSI for my monitor and rocking a Panasonic Pro Plasma for clients.
  20. I've used this workflow for most of my projects. You take an EDL or XML into RedCineX, set your export to R3D Trim, set your handle lengths, and the export. It creates trimmed R3D files that you can easily manage and import into your grading app of choice.
