Raw, Log & Uncompressed – Chicago

Overview Many of today’s latest cameras offer Log & Raw recording modes, giving extended dynamic range and versatility in post. However, shooting in Log & Raw presents many challenges both in the field and in the post-production process. This class is an introduction to Log & Raw recording and its applications.

LUTs 101: Theory – Chicago

Overview

Many of the latest camera systems offer either Log or Raw recording modes that give us the most possible information out of the camera. These features are great at keeping the original camera ‘negative’ as clean as possible, but at the same time they can leave your image on set looking very flat and boring. This is where the use of Look Up Tables (LUT) comes in, which are offsets that allow you to manipulate your image and create a look without affecting the camera originals. This workshop is split into two sections, LUTs 101: Theory & LUTs 201: Practical Application.

LUTs 101: Theory will demonstrate the process for creating a LUT for cameras like the Alexa, Sony F5 & F55, and Varicam. Specific focus is types of LUTs, LUT combinations and layering, and tools used for OnSet LUT creation.


LUTs 201: Practical Application – Chicago

Overview

Many of the latest camera systems offer either Log or Raw recording modes that give us the most possible information out of the camera. These features are great at keeping the original camera ‘negative’ as clean as possible, but at the same time they can leave your image on set looking very flat and boring. This is where the use of Look Up Tables (LUT) comes in, which are offsets that allow you to manipulate your image and create a look without affecting the camera originals. This workshop is split into two sections, LUTs 101: Theory & LUTs 201: Practical Application.

LUTs 201: Practical Application further expands on the curriculum of LUTs 101: Theory. This class explores the creative side of LUT design as well as applying LUTs in different post production applications. Working with live camera sources, this class demonstrates creating looks from various cameras. These looks will then be applied in a variety of post editing and grading applications.
