    Does this mean Red will allow Apple to develop ProRes Raw?

    And what about the Afterburner hardware option for the 2019 Mac Pro? Will Red permit Apple to sell this?

    I just used 16.1.1 on a small project yesterday as a test, and it was fine for me (under Mac OSX 10.14.6, which I think is the minimum OS required). No issues with performance that I can see... yet.

    I know quite a few LA colorists who are lobbying to do a separate SDR pass first, then do an HDR trim pass (rather than vice-versa), because at the moment the SDR is being scrutinized by far more...

    All I can say is, I tried playing back 8K Raw last year at 1/8th resolution on a music video project, and my poor Trashcan Mac almost caught on fire. Not a wise idea. We were able to finish it, but...

    Was the display calibrated?

    Was the project graded by an experienced colorist?

    If the answer to both is "yes," then I would check it on scopes and see if what you think see is actually in the...

    Yes, I think Dermot is 100% right here. NR is not a "one size fits all" process.

    I typically use it only with noisy underexposed shots, and let the bright day stuff go, assuming it looks good. It...

    It is frustrating that Apple will not make a full "desktop replacement" laptop, like the ones they used to make.

    In truth, there are good reasons to edit with proxies/transcodes, for the simple...

    Jannard is an amazing man. I hope he'll consider writing an autobiography -- he's got some stories to tell.

    Jason Bowdach has an interesting article on film emulation over on Frame.io this month:

    Note that The Island and Bad Boys II were both shot on film, so the aesthetic is quite a bit different than Michael Bay's digital productions. Stefan Sonnenfeld did digitally color-time both films,...

    There's a lot of "it depends" to this, and there's an art in deciding how narrow or how wide to grab a key, and how to use (or not use) softness to make the key more gentle and gradual. And to some...

    No, you'll find that the results with a LUT will also vary widely shot to shot as well. There's nothing "magical" about a LUT: it's just a mathematical version of a color correction. You can modify...

    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...

    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...

    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...
