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.
In this tutorial I explain my workflow for the Akbank TVC.
Especially the use of alpha channels and how you deal with it in Assimilate Scratch.
Because of the codec and the size the highlights in the tutorial are a little bit crashed...sorry for that.
You can see the better quality of the commercial when you watch it directly here on vimeo. vimeo.com/35111540
In this Coca Cola commercial we had to combine lots of different footage. Arri Alexa and youtube footage doesn't really fit together. So we decided to make a natural, colorwashed grading only for the Alexa shots. I gradet only the singing kids and the couple.
I call this the "sunwashed-look".
Freelance colorist, Andreas Brueckl shares a tutorial on how to create a monochromatic "silver look." The footage is from the great directors of kronck.de. Normally the set design and the dresses have to be in the same monochrome kind of color. In this case everything is warm, but we tint it blue to achieve the silver look. So you have to keep the highlights neutral and tint the rest dark blue with keys and masks.
