As its name suggests, this workshop covers the use of waveforms and vectorscopes on set. The workshop also demonstrates the use of many other tools used by modern digital cinematographers, including false color, zebra lines, and histograms.
Waveforms & Vectorscopes is designed to give both a technical and practical knowledge of how these tools are used. As part of this process, the workshop will also include a live demonstration of matching two different camera systems using scopes.
