ACES gives us colorists amazing possibilities with seamless and losless workflows and look creation.
Grading on a Baselight system in ACES is a modern way of film style grading.
In this tutorial I explain a technique, that I discovered while grading my lates cinema feature film "Redha".
It is about the use and mix of different RRTs like e.g. "filmlight truelight video" and the "RRT1.0".
Why "kind of" workflow? Because the recommended ACES workflow works with AcesCC AP1 and the RRT1.0. In this video I show a more flexible way with more possibilities.
As mentioned in the video you can find great infos about the ACES technology and theory. But so far I couldn't find anyhting from a colorists perspective. Here we go...
I hope you like it and HAPPY GRADING!
In this tutorial I will show you some of my little tricks for retouching and improving the skin and skintones for TV commercials. I also use the SCRATCH Bicubic Mask (Canvas) to tweak some points.
So, this is not really a tutorial but two very simple schemes of DI workflows with Alexa and RED cameras.
In the second 30 seconds you can see the workflow for
massive VFX shots (e.g. for features). As you can see, grading plays a major part in creating rushes for the edit, creating LUTs for the VFX department and taking the final step to conforming.
