Log recording is an incredibly handy mode to consider when shooting video. It uses a different color space than standard recording modes, making the image appear flat and washed out—but giving you tremendous flexibility in post-production. When recording in log mode, you retain detailed information in the highlights and shadows of your footage, allowing increased dynamic range in the image itself.
In this episode, Robbie and I explore log recording workflows on a multi-camera set, then transition to post-production and process the resulting footage with Adobe Premiere Pro and SpeedGrade to show you the benefits of log recording firsthand.
• What log recording is
• Camera options and settings for log recording
• What an LUT is, and how it helps to process log footage
• The Dynamic Link workflow between Adobe Premiere Pro and SpeedGrade
