Setting up my Color Correction Home Studio - Lightning
on Mar 15, 2013 at 11:57:06 pm

So, I've already asked this forum about hardware, software and made my own home studio. Now I'm moving to a new place and decided to enhance it (since I've got now fairly good hardware in my room, which isn't a proper studio at all).

I decided to paint one of the walls in my new place grey, and light it the proper way... the thing is: what lightbulbs should I use? any 65K "daylight" bulb will do the job or is there any industry-standard specifics I should look for? If not, is there anything else I should look for when setting up my lights?

Thanks!


Hardware info, in case anyone needs it to answer properly:

AVID Artist Color interface
Sony PVM-1741 Oled Monitor (SDI In)
Blackmagic Express Pro (SDI out)
Imac I7

and that's it, still no proper scopes

Or the Pro version if the wall is farther away. You are looking to get about 10% of the luminance of your monitor on the back wall (about 3fL)

Most paint stores will match or cross reference this paint…

I used the e-cinema paint... one thing to keep in mind is that it is an oil based paint... there are some threads about this. From what I understand this is the only thing that is close to being truly neutral. It's not cheap either. It's $125/gallon. The recommendation is 2 coats of primer and a coat of flat white before the application of the SP-50 paint. This will help stretch it out. I did the recommended preparation and am doing 2 coats of SP-50 on the front wall, a single coat on the side walls and flat black on the back wall.
