Cheapest way for professional color timing?
on Dec 5, 2017 at 8:44:06 pm

I edited a 5 hour documentary in Premiere Pro CC, shot on a C300. The last time I made a doc, we hired a post house to do the color timing. But can't really afford it this time.

I'm located in Los Angeles and I am wondering if I can bring my color timer guy into my office with a rented deck or something rather than going to a post house. He doesn't own any equipment but works with DaVinci machines and is up for whatever solution we come up with.

Currently I just have simple color correction filters that have been attached to the video clips since the last version of Premiere we had before the upgrade. Not sure if the colorist will keep these or not.

Try to find someone independent who will do this. Someone with a home setup, and not a full blown post house. Because professional color correction still requires access to professional tools, like an IO card and color correction monitor. Brining someone to your facility that lacks these won't get you anywhere, unfortunately. As they wouldn't have the tools needed to do the job. Like asking a. Plumber to fix the pipes without a wrench.

If I wasn't so busy I'd help you, but I have too much on my plate. But look for an independent colorist with their own can even post a job listing on Facebooks I NEED A FINISHER group. I'm sure you'll get nibbles.

find someone who at least has a calibrated monitor even if its a cheap monitor and did a basic audio eq and audio volume check or you'll get sub-quality.

resolve has a match clip feature via XML so...just sayin 😉 and check their reel.
