IRIDAS Launches SpeedGrade OnSet 2006
"With SpeedGrade OnSet, I have a simple tool for establishing the looks we want during preproduction," said cinematographer Caroline Brandes of Luminist Films. "Then I use the looks to review shots with my director during production and into post, refining them when we need to."
Third party products, including the Cinemage Intelligent Display monitors from Cine-Tal and the new digital camera systems from Silicon Imaging can load .Look files in their native format. In addition, SpeedGrade OnSet's new export functionality allows .Looks to be exported as 1D and 3D LUTs for use with a variety of other systems.
"I use SpeedGrade Onset with the Cine-tal monitor and the LUTher box." said Dave Stump, ASC, who used SpeedGrade OnSet most recently on What Love Is and Killer Pad. "It's great: all I have to do is generate the .Look and it's 'plug and play' from then on! SpeedGrade OnSet closes the color loop for me."
"SpeedGrade OnSet allows me to work with FilmStream and HDStream to demonstrate the broad latitude of those mediums and their potential for the final look of a production," said George C. Palmer, a Las Vegas-based Digital Imaging Engineer. "It makes the new medium more comfortable for the creative people."
