    You would learn anything you want to know if you would ask questions of the professionals doing the work. What you need to do is ask the right questions, which means doing some homework so that you understand what it is they have to do even if you don't know exactly how they do it. There are a lot of resources for this, starting with the DCI specification, freely available at Doing a job with professionals can be the best learning experience you can have if you don't go in thinking that it isn't. If you think you can learn this stuff in a vacuum, or just by asking questions on Internet forums, you're not trying very hard. It's much easier to figure something out once you know how others already do it.

  2. #12 Color problem with Wraptor

    The colors were off and the image looked really dark on the screen. That being said, we really want it to look perfect this time around. I just talked with the projectionist and he gave me these settings from their projector:


    I am having the exact same problem. I have perfect, color-corrected YUV, but I run it through Wraptor to make a DCP and the output is dark with some color shifts.

    Either I am doing something wrong, or Wraptor is converting to this XYZ colorspace the wrong way.

    Has anyone ever made a Wraptor DCP that looks right??

    What's the trick?

    I do not understand why I would need a "LUT" Shouldn't Wraptor know how to make a proper conversion from perfect-looking YUV to XYZ?
