Synopsis – 2 Days
This is a new class designed to introduce new workflows that have recently been introduced and how to grade for them. Ideal for colorists and industry professionals that will encounter ACES, High Dynamic Range (HDR including Dolby Vision), UHD, Rec 2020 and wide color gamut. We look at how grades and looks are affected by these new developments and which tools are most useful to achieve bigger better color. The course content is not system specific but there will be practical sessions and demonstrations. Laptop systems are welcome in the class. Participants are encouraged to bring frames or clips to discuss.
The first session covers the theory and practice of the Academy Color Encoding System (ACES), how to work with it and why it is so useful. The session is followed by a practical workshop. The second session covers HDR, and the various formats including Rec 2084 (PQ) and Dolby Vision. It is also followed by a practical workshop. The concluding session is a discussion on digital cinema and UHD applications followed by a Q & A.
