    Note that LUTs tend to be fairly destructive, and you may be able to match the look without unnecessarily crushing or clipping the image with a film-emulation LUT. There are some who do a node before...

    That is kind of true, but there are advantages to taking Long-GOP H.264 material and converting it to even 8-bit ProRes or DNxHD, provided it's at a decent compression rate. We routinely take any...

    The flaw with this approach (or a Timeline NR grade) is you risk NR smear from one cut to the next, particularly in very high contrast/extreme noise situations, like a bare lightbulb in a black room...

    Jesus, that looks like an awful lot of work. I've done 15-20 Red features in the last four years with maybe 2-3 preliminary nodes that set up the overall look, and then everything after that is a...

    No, there's no way to do this. There are workarounds: for example, use a Fixed Node Structure and use NR only in one specific node, then bypass that one node during the session and turn it back on...

    Don't omit the trailer! These are some of the most stunning images I've seen all year.

    I bet the new forthcoming 2019 Mac Pro system will be great and could handle this... but it won't be cheap. I would guess it will be priced about the same as a comparable PC/Linux system from...

    I have a good friend who was drafted into doing the "beauty shots" of Tampa Stadium for a weekend CBS Sports TV football event in the 1970s. He strapped himself into place wearing a harness and let...

    Dolby Vision can go anywhere from 400 nits to 10,000 nits. We watched the 600-nit version of Mindhunteron Netflix and thought the show looked consistently fantastic throughout. "Bright" or "dark" are...

    Call me crazy, I'd hire a colorist.

    Black balance and white balance are among the most basic chores a colorist does every day. The Vectorscope is the best tool to help with pinpoint accuracy, as...

    If you're just trying to get it to Rec709, shoot a DSC Chart (like the Chroma DuMonde) and look at where the levels wind up. Once adjusted, the color values should hit the targets on a Vectroscope,...

    It's also possible to just color-correct and not use a LUT at all. We typically use IPP2, RWG-RGB, and Log3G10 color science for Red shows in the project settings, and then we do the rest with curves...

    No, I know of no automatic way to do this. My advice if you have a ton of clips and don't want to do the work is to hire an affordable assistant editor and let them do the drudge work, leaving you...

    I have to say, the crazy Jinnimag guy did do a ton of research to locate all those documents, find the articles, get hold of very obscure 2005-2006 demos, and then compare and contrast what was said...

    I agree with Gunleik. When I've been involved with VFX projects with complex split-screens and so on, they either had the camera locked off with heavy sandbags and weights, or they had a...

    At the risk of sounding like @Jake Blackstone, small correction:

    1) the Dalsa was only available for rental (both models made over the years)

    2) the Varicam I was aware of in that period only...

    I have seen DataVideo intercoms used on shoots, so that's one pro option:

    I actually think the visuals were OK, but lord, the sound mix was awful. Levels all over the place, and the guy's accent made his narration very difficult to understand.

    However, I think he made...

    Resolve SNR in Enhanced mode can do wonders, but it takes a lot of time to process. Neat Video is even more time-consuming.

    Often noise is mostly confined to blacks or specific color channels,...

    So glad to hear that the great David Mullen ASC won tonight for his work on THE AMAZING MRS. MAISEL. As far as I'm concerned, he was cheated several years ago for not winning for SMASH, which was an...

    As I read the tech papers, ProResRAW is not entirely raw and is not using JPEG2000, so I think they may be just outside the boundary of the patents. This is now in the hands of the lawyers, so we'll...

    Chapter 9 in the Resolve 16 manual, "Image Sizing and Resolution Independence," is a critical one and I often tell Resolve users to read it twice. There are an ocean of options when it comes to...
