The PMW-F3 is a new camera from Sony with Super 35mm size sensor, with LUT support, S-LOG with Dual Link RGB output, Hypergamma, etc. The features of the F3 will be explained and footage shot with the camera will be screened.
S-Log is a gamma function applied to Sony’s electronic cinematography cameras. Since S-Log can reproduce the entire tonal range captured by a CCD or CMOS imager, the S-Log image can be described as the “Digital Negative” of the image acquisition process. Shooting in S-Log will enable the cinematographer to decide the exposure value by using a light meter, and offer a smooth transition from film acquisition to digital acquisition. S-LOG is a Sony technology and is broadly supported in the post production process. This session will explain S-LOG as it relates to the PMW-F3, HDCAM SR F35, F23 and SRW-9000PL.
S-LOG in Post Production: FilmLight’s TrueLight – S-LOG Color management
FilmLight is a manufacturer of film scanning, color grading and color management systems. Truelight is a complete film color management system for pre-visualizing film images on electronic display devices. Truelight lets you view the final look of the film at any point in the digital post-production process. Truelight also is available as a software Plug-in for compositing environments such as After Effects, Photoshop, Shake, Nuke and Digital Fusion. Realizing the need for S-LOG, LUT management in the workflow is a compliment to HDCAMSR and the PMW-F3. This session will focus on the S-LOG color management process using the TrueLight plug-ins.
