Color correct to specific RGB or HSL values.
on Aug 28, 2017 at 3:41:52 pm

I'm working on a project for a cosmetics company, and my client is being very specific about color on a lipstick smear panel. I've used Lumetri HSL Secondary tools to pick shades and get close visually on a calibrated monitor. However, I'm wondering if there's a place I'm missing where I can enter her product's specific color values and correct exactly to that color.

Anyone run into this one before?

Also, any advice on how I can convince her that I can't calibrate every monitor on the planet to display her colors correctly? 😉

Thanks in advance, mighty Forum Gods!

Have the client take a trip to Best Buy and look at the TV sets on display. They're all slightly different colors. These are what end users have in their homes. The client has noble intentions, but faces an impossible task.

I finally sent her a link to open on her iPad where she declared it was close... then I put the iPad into Night Shift mode and I think she had an ah-hah moment...

I'd still like to solve the first bit, however. A friend showed me how to do it on Avid - one nice feature on Avid, but the rest of using Avid is like editing with two sticks and a rock, IMHO.

IMO the Lumetri tools are lousy and lacking a bunch of features. You should probably try and learn to use Resolve. There's a color compressor effect for something like this.
