Join James Ball for an in-depth discussion in this video Color and calibration tools, part of Multi-Camera Video Production and Post.
- One of the things I like, Jim,…is that a lot of tools have come on the market…to make it easier to color calibrate.…Photographers are doing this.…Video people are doing this.…There's just so many tools…and a lot of them are dirt cheap,…so there's really no excuse not to have them.…Between you and I,…we realize we had almost eight different ways…to get the job done…and none of these cost much over 100, 150 bucks,…so I think it's worth having.…One of the first ones that I like is a flexifill target…and this just has the black, white,…and gray reference on it.…And Jim, besides being reference,…what good is it to have a flexifill on set?…- Well, you can use it to actually kick some light…into a subject's face, use the other side of it.…
- So it's kind of a double piece of equipment…or you can use it to block the light if you had to.…So this is just a great thing.…I love this because they make them in different sizes,…some that are small enough to stick in your pocket,…others that you just hang up on set,…you point all the cameras at it,…
You'll learn essential preproduction strategies to get the right gear and place it in the right position. You'll also learn techniques for syncing the visuals and audio captured from each camera. Rich and James offer advice for directors running shoots in the field, as well as strategies for crew members who are building sets and logging footage. Finally, in chapters 7 and 8, they share techniques for multicamera postproduction with Final Cut Pro X and Premiere Pro. In these chapters, you'll learn how to create multicam clips, apply color correction, color match angles, switch between angles, and refine and master your edit.
