Hi all,

I need HELP!!

I am about to start a vfx job in AFX CC and I have to work out how to colour manage it.

I am working on .movs coming from a Sony f55, in log colourspace.
I have to composite vfx in After Effects then output in the original (log) colourspace for ingest to Avid Nitris for final colour grade.

I want to NOT have to use a LUT adjustment layer, I would rather interpret the footage and work in linear but render outputs in log.

I HAVE NO EXPERIENCE of this and could be considered a LAYMAN when it comes to issues of colourspace!! Can anyone help!

Thank you,
N. Munro

Ummmm... Why not? I pretty much always work in the same color space as the footage and use a LUT etc to see how the effect is matching up.

I'm worried about colour picking for my vfx, having no experience of log/LUT arrangements, I'd feel more comfortable in a linear colour space when it comes to white/black levels, picking colours for lazers/explosions etc...


As I say, I hav eno experience of this, so maybe I'm being unnecessarily cautious!

I really appreciate any advice on this!
