View Full Version : FOTR Color Grading

05 May 2003, 03:00 AM
After watching the section of the Fellowship of the ring on color grading. Can somebody tell me what software they were using to do the collor correction?

It kinda looks like Colossus but it's hard to tell.

As far as I know it was Colossus that did the grading. Anyone at WETA please confirm this. But this is what was sent out in press releases.

The Colossus technology was acquired by Discreet.

At NAB, discreet announced lustre™, the world’s first non-proprietary real-time 2K digital color grading system for Digital Intermediates.

Go to for more information.

Colorfront owns the technology in Colossus, Discreet licensed it, they didnt aquire it.

Sorry, not trying to be nit picky.

Thats what I thought, so Lustre is something separate I assume..
