I just tought some one might of done already :)
Thank u, 24 l 1.4 50 1.4
There is no difference (other than what you see monitoring on set) between doing these settings in camera or doing them in Red Cine X so even though the Red One doesn't have Red Gamma 3, you can still benefit from it in your transcodes.
Just set up a preset in Red Cine X Pro and you can apply it to all your footage and see if you like it.
I will be uploading some presets here so everyone can test and upload there own
Great thread Greg! Mike said you mentioned it at the party so I had to find it :) Honestly this is kind of what the camera is made for. I think people SHOULD be dialing in a quick look on their shoots for clients, then metering exposure in RAW. As long as you keep aware of your highlights and blacks in RAW, you should be great. I don't think anyone is saying to skip post color grading/correction at all, but this is a great example of what you can do by dialing your look pre-post. And honestly for a lot of people that send there footage right to prores anyway, and never relink to color, this is a great way to get a decent looking image. Kudos to Greg for being bold!
Did you use noise reduction on the high ISO shots?
Every lighting setup has it's own particular color temp, therefore it's own look, one cannot be simply copied.
I received my new Sekonic C-500 Prodigi color meter on Monday, and used it Tuesday and Wednesday on a shoot for Nissan Motors this week.
We are shooting with both the new Canon C300 and the Canon 1DS Mark 3. The ability to set the correct color temperature for cameras that processes a compressed file (Canon C300, Sony F3, Arri Alexa), is a huge. As you know, the more you have to correct a file the more damage you do to it, hence, having the color correct is one less damaging process in the workflow, and adds, in faster grading process as well.
I believe with the majority of motion being shot on compressed in camera processed files, the more a Sekonic C-500 color meter will be needed on set, to help give a cleaner file to post production.
Here is a link to my blog, http://reddigitalmotionandstill.blog...very-time.html
With respect to RED, it's meta data, but you can establish a near perfect look in camera, by dialing in the correct color temp and color correction. It can aid in less work for your post colorist, not eliminate, but a few less steps to the final grade. For all other cameras that shoot a compressed file, it's a slam dunk.
I do use noise reduction in redcine only, specially on ISO 5000, I just want start sharing looks with others! So please start posting
