Question about LUTs
Kendrick Gray posted a topic in Grading, DI and TelecineMy plan is to shoot in Slog3 for my short film. I'd like to use a creative lut to help me grade it but I've gotten confused. I know about rec709 being the broadcast standard, but what about for the web? Websites like Vimeo and Youtube? What happens when you apply a creative lut and leave it as it. Will what ever you are displaying it on correct it? Maybe I'm going about this the wrong way because I don't understand it at all lol. I never had to deal with this considering this is my first time using Slog. Apply a rec709 LUT first and grade manually vs adding a creative LUT and correcting it hmmm.
Modernising colour standards
Eben Bolter posted a topic in General DiscussionHi guys, After watching the excellent THR cinematographers roundtable, I feel compelled to draw more attention to one of the key issues they discuss - the lack of control of the final image in todays modern world of different screens and projector standards. I've been lucky enough to have a few films I've shot recently coloured by Rob Pizzey and Adam Glasman at Co3 in London and we've achieved results I've been delighted with in their colouring sweet, both in the P3 space on their projector, and in Rec709 on their Dolby monitors. The problem however, is when we output to home deliverables in Rec709 h264, the image is so drastically different on my home macbook, iPad, TV that I find when sharing it I'm constantly having to explain and apologise for the final quality. Personally I've found this much less of a problem with DCPs in theatres, but modern displays at home are surely capable of better. It strikes me that rec709 (created in 1990 for TV) surely can't still be the answer for grading to a standard that will look good across all devices. Of course the issue is in two parts here, but is there a push anywhere to standardise a modern colour space and standard across hardware, that can reap the benefits of more dynamic range, contrast and better colour representation? I've heard about rec2020, but as far as I can see this seems to be just for 4K TVs? Would love to hear your thoughts and hopefully there's an answer out there in the works, to ensure a more modern and standardised presentation of the work we do in peoples homes and on their devices.

noob question, sRGB and REC709
Cristian Arevalo posted a topic in Grading, DI and TelecineNoob question, don´t laugh. I´ve made my research and I don´t really understand the phenomena. Let´s say I want to grade a video for broadcast, I´m grading it in sRGB on my monitor and I forget to choose the REC709. How my video will look on broadcast? It will look darker (more constrasty)? The second question: When I toggle between sRGB and REC709 I see a slight change in contrast. Viewing in REC709 my video looks contrasty. Is this how my image should look on broadcast? Thank you!
