Color Workflow in Visual Effects/Invisible Effects heavy pieces
on Nov 2, 2017 at 4:11:22 pm

I often work on projects where it's ONLY one shot or two (social media vids). There are often a lot of visual effects or invisible elements in these videos. We have LUTs that we apply on-set (these were custom built for us for our particular camera and brand colors) and it takes things pretty close.

One person often does all the post (there's no separate person doing color grading and no editor needed since it's only one or two shots).

Do you have any recommendations on workflow in this situation. Where would color grading come into this kind of post pipeline. The best I can come up with now is to have the digi-tech let up know what LUT they used on set for viewing and then get color notes from the creative director about brand colors they want to hit in the shot or other specific color needs (this can be a little complicated because if they later on want a skin tone punched up but the arm is on a brand color background, any moves to the arm will affect the background and then require a key to be pulled or have it roto'd). Lastly, do a color review as a last step and do any final tweaks.

Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!

Best regards,

Kevin Camin
