I'd like to try Open EXR, but I'm not aware of how to use that in anything but shake and photoshop. LW or AE plugins yet for Open EXR
By the way, I think there should be a forum on color space which would cover things like..
Log/Lin/Vid Colour spaces
The reason being that there are new film-out companies poping up, and film outs will be cheaper than ever in the future, but the medium diserves better than simply outputing to film from targas or HD, the film outs look vastly better when composited and output with a format which takes out of range values into account such as Cineon.
The service providers are very tight lipped becuse this is proprietary information, but they are mostly using commercial products and off the shelf codecs. We can take much of the expense and hastle of doing a film-out by doing all the rendering and prep ourselves right? Be our own DI supervisors.
My first question for this group would be. Can I take my Lacie monitor into Deluxe or Techniclolor to Calibrate it myself in the theatre while viewing a film out test in a theatre? How could I save this calibration as a LUT for use in AE, Shake or Final Touch?
How do people come up with their viewing LUTs?
Will a monitor drift out of calibration over time?
