Synopsis – 1 Day
Colorists refer to their main grading display as “The God Monitor” and there is no doubt that color correction is only useful if the display is calibrated in a meaningful way. This class covers basic color science and color spaces, followed by a practical workflow for setting up, and calibrating displays using THX cineSpace software.
This color management class is ideal for anyone who uses a display for critical viewing decisions, including DITs, Colorists, Editors and VFX artists. No prior knowledge is assumed, and by the end of the day everyone should be capable of calibrating a display device, and matching monitors. The course also covers workflows and techniques to do a DI grade for film prints and the use of LUTs to transform media from one space to another.
