  2. You’ve graded your feature, episodes, or commercial and it looks awesome. What is your ‘go-to’ when converting your masterpiece from it’s original format to a range of formats for television and web? Software or hardware? And why?
  3. Last week
  4. Thanks for the reply, Jason! I thought that might be the case, but it has a few more control points so I thought I missed something. All the best!
  5. If I recall correctly, I applied the Bleach Bypass look still / PowerGrade created in the previous lesson to save a few steps. Hope that helps clarify!
  6. Hi All, Can someone please let me know how the curve at the beginning of lesson six was developed. I’ve watched all the content, and it is as if there should have been a lesson in between 5 and 6. It just starts off saying, “let’s grab our curve and applying it”, but there is no reference as to where or why that was created. thanks!
  7. Lowepost premium members that subscribed before 15. september have access to all the courses on Ravengrade.com for as long as they stay subscribed.
  8. Hi Arturo, it's coming back next week and we'll continue to create new training for other apps. Lots of fun in the making!
  9. Quick question: You guys had some after effects content here on lowepost, and now it's gone. Will it be moved to raven grade? Or is it gone and now you're gonna focus solely on BMD solutions like Resolve and Fusion?
  10. Good evening, Bit confused here : If I renew my Lowepost premium membership now, do I have access to the Ravengrade content ? or I must buy two membership ? Thanks for your precisions. Cordially, Vincent.
  11. Hello David! have you find any answer ? im also looking for the same information ! thank you!
  12. Earlier
  13. We are in process restructuring Lowepost/Ravengrade, and will announce some changes next week. In the meantime, all Lowepost premium members that subscribed before 15. september have access to all the courses on Ravengrade.com. All you have to do is to insert your Lowepost username or email address on this page and generate a new password: https://ravengrade.com/my-account/lost-password/ If you experience any trouble, write to us on support@lowepost.com PS: A new masterclass is up on Ravengrade! Thanks, The Lowepost team
  14. thanks Marc, are you telling me a node above which is pushed to cool, and layer node beneath where we key skin color.
  15. Mitch’s 2383 is based on a large data set. However I assume the overall ‘look’ you are referring to re saturation is the subtractive nature of a film print’s saturation, which his 2383 models. There are many ways you can achieve this type of subtractive saturation, but essentially you would need tools that can lower the density of a hue and also saturate/expand it. Typically with subtractive saturation as a hue becomes more saturated it also becomes darker. The saturation knob In resolve will have the opposite effect because it is additive, it linearly expands out all colours and perceptually increases their luminance as it does so. So as you apply saturation colours will become bright and garish, especially those that are already near the gamut/cube edge. When you apply a more ‘film like’ saturation lower saturated areas will become more saturated quicker than higher saturated areas, so for example skin will become saturated but car tail lights will hold where they are. This is a non linear type of saturation and can have very beautiful results. Nobe color remap / color warper can be effective tools for experimenting with density and saturation of a hue across a hue’s luminance and saturation. And as already pointed out, playing with S in HSV can also give a subtractive style of behaviour. Paul Dore put out a free dctl I believe called film density which applies hsv saturation. Different colour models behave differently, it can be fun to experiment!
  16. Mitch’s 2383 is Onyx. (lovely work in that grade btw). I do find that the implementation of Onyx in Ravengrade clamps max saturation quite a bit earlier than Mitch’s original 2383 xyz model that I assume the Ravengrade version used as a source, however that is just my own speculation since both the original LUT and Ravengrade version are almost identical apart from the saturation clamp.

  18. How are you monitoring audio? Are you coming out of the UltraStudio? That should be precisely in sync with the image, and it should be fairly fast. I don't expect instantaneous anything in post, but I do have to have precise sync, for editing and for timing purposes.
  19. What are you specifically trying to achieve? I think you can already get some interesting kinds of saturation by using the tools within Resolve: Cullen Kelly has demonstrated placing one node into HSV space, turning off H (Hue) and V (Value) and then using gain to bring up Saturation. It's a different look than the normal Primaries Sat knob, which is based in RGB. Cullen's video is fairly informative: I'm not sure I'd call it "cinematic" per se, since that's kind of a word that gets thrown around an awful lot. But it's an interesting alternative to trying to turn color level up with the Sat knob, or with the Color Warper -- which can be put in different modes as well (HSP, HSY, HSL, and HSV). A lot depends on your expectations and the time available. I also wouldn't underestimate the Color Boost mode, which can do some interesting things under the right conditions.
  20. One thing you can try: use a Layer Mixer node to retain some of the fleshtones when you've introduced a lot of cyan (teal) in the picture. In truth, if the characters in a scene where in a teal-colored room, they wouldn't have perfectly natural skintone anyway, so the trick to me is to dial back the fleshtones so they aren't 100% natural, but maybe 50% there. There are a zillion tutorials out there explaining how to use Layer Mixers to qualify colors in a specific area (like fleshtones). Be aware that some film sets don't allow opportunities for an orange/teal (split-tone) look, particularly when there's a background color too close to skintone. In other words, the decision for this kind of look has to happen prior to production so that sets and locations are compatible with the final color contrast the filmmakers want. The Color Warper might also be a tool to help eliminate magenta and green, giving you a better Orange/Teal split. Be aware that it's possible to lean the shadows towards blue and highlights towards warmth without a lot of effort, provided the material is well-shot. The orange/teal look has existed for more than 20 years, long before Resolve and long before layer mixers were even available.
  21. Thank you for this course. I found it to be extremely helpful.
  22. Not sure what format you’re working in, but Lutify.me has a decent set of Teal/Orange Luts that can be dialed in while keeping the skin tones. I also second ravengrade. You can get really surgical with it on the proper notes. also, use a layer node when working with skin tones after the lut and make sure your image is balanced slightly on the warmer side with a sat/sat curve in the shadows.
  23. Hey, you are right there is no one button solution to convert HDR to SDR. You’ll have to do a technical pass for SDR and that doesn’t require Dolby licence . It’s only required when you want to deliver Dolby Vision content that has trim passes for SDR. And to create trim pass you need Dolby licence.
  24. Im curious why posts like this focus more on the Dolby License than the actual conversion of SDR to HDR color. The biggest misconception I've run into, is that folks think there is a 1 button solution to convert sdr.. I haven't seen one yet, and i've been diving in deep on several sites like this.. So please, if you have a solution for the actual color conversion, I'd like to hear it.
  25. Question on the real life use of three point editing. Did you apply a transform to get the close up of the lady prior to the overwrite?
  26. Signed up after seeing the free course on Fusion by Kevin. What an excellent teacher. For me editing video is just a retirement hobby I've played some with Fusion in the last year and watched a number of videos on it as well, but until I saw Kevin's series .... I never fully got it. Same for three point editing. Thanks Kevin for the great courses!
  27. Dear All, could someone guide me to material, courses, website, software anything that can help me with teal look. i’ll write in nutshel here. ” to create teal look keeping skin intact” what should i do. [skin qualification i tried a lot, it is not working for me]
