Hi guys, I've been reading the forum for a couple of days now and I was hoping you could help me out and shed some light on a few things.
We just wrapped on an ultra low budget feature a while ago, are about a week from picture lock, and there isn't any money left for anything.
I'd like to go the DPX route for color since anyone who seems to know what they are talking about raves about it. However, I thought that Color already supported DPX and a 3rd party plug-in wasn't needed? I don't really understand what Glue Tools is and why I would need it, other than to view dpx based videos outside of Color...
So unless I can pry some cash from the producer, it looks like this is my 1080/24p (destined for festivals and DVD) workflow:
My problem is that the DP & Director have *a lot* of blown out windows. How should I one-light it in RC? I don't want to lose that information when I go back to Color but I don't think that Uncompressed QT will keep it. If I lower the ISO and export from RC so I can use the blown out shots, I don't know if I'll lose info in Color because it's too dark.
I hope that made sense...
