Hey all, we got our Epic-X a couple months ago, and its been a blast learning all I can about the tech side of this camera. Its such a break from our old AF100-KiPro Mini workflow, that its been interesting to develop the new workflow, and get all the guys in the shop on board. We are getting there, though!
So, my question has to do with color science. Before we got our EPIC, color science hasn't really reared its fugly head in our shop, we set the cameras up and left them. We never before went to outside programs (davinci, color) to do grading, we did all of it in FCP and AE which served our purposes well. But now, we are trying to step things up and include a grading pass in our workflow.
Where are good resources to learn more about the different terms/names of color space, REDGamma settings, etc? Things as rudimentary as what is and when do you use linear workflows? What is sLOG? Whats the difference between REDGamma2 and REDGamma3? and REDLOG? Is there a dictionary out there?
I'm now going through the RED Grading course 302 at FXPHD. I can follwo the theory of whats going on, but since its a 300 level class, he doesn't spend a lot of time explaining the terms of the color science he is talking about and working with.
Thanks for any help! Just don't want to shoot something incorrectly and have to fix it later. I realize that how its shot and graded has a lot to do with how you want to process in post (just a one light pass in REDCineX, or do a full grading pass in davinci or Color), I just want to be aware of the different situations and when to use different setups.
