C2 for film

Anyone had experience using Combustion for film res stuff? I'm sorta new to the subject. Does it work well handling that kinda res stuff? Any limitations? Better than After Effects when working with film (I assume)? Any comments or experience greatly appreciated.

yes! you are able to combine footage of different resolution
and there is a great grain tool , LUT and so on ..

Great, it's what I thought, but I had to ask someone experienced before I made any stupid assumptions.

Its an accurate color profile for you monitor so what you are seeing on the monitor is as close as possible to what it will look like when you goto film or video or whatever medium you are working on.

think of it like monitor colour correction for film. Lets say you care working with Cineon format at 30bit colour log space - your monitor cant show all that range of colour values. If it just averages the range from top to bottom, it may not reflect what the final output will be. A look up table accurately maps your screens 8bpc colour space to the formats 30bit space, so if you paint on some sunflower yellow, it should look like sunflower yellow on screen...

I use C2 for film work for nearly every job.

I recomend that you calibrate your monitors to 5500K, or you will be sorry if you need to do any color correction.

Most work is done with the cineon file format. I've found that using a view lut is better than setting each footage layer to use a lut. It seems to be less taxing on the system and then you don't have to remember to set the Lut's back to straight before you render.

If you haven't worked with Cineon files yet it takes a bit getting used to.

I use the Pantone ColorVision "Spyder"

It's a software hardware based system that works great.

I think I paid about $300 for it.

Good luck
