Supervising colorspaces in different parts of the chain. As I understand it, Digital Cinema Projections are in P3 colorspace, and TV/DVD/Web is rec.709 colorspace. Then, as for the workflow. Images are captured in colorspace X (depending on the camera/stock) In the DI, images are converted to another colorspace, lets just say ACES In the master the images are then converted into either P3 or Rec.709 depending on the format. My questions are, 1. How do we know which colorspace we are exporting to? E.g. What colorspace does H.264, ProRes422 (HQ) or ProRes4444 have? Can you recommend any places to read up on this? 2. And how do we ensure to keep colors within the intended colorspace, as to not lose out of gamut colors when exporting? 3. I often use a Kodak2383 emulsion LUT when grading which clips out of gamut colors and remaps them to the closest color of same luminance. I suppose the gamut / colorspace is calculating what can be printed to Kodak2383 film. Do you know of any way that I can see / test how wide this colorspace is compared to P3 and rec.709? 4. I work with dailies & grades in photoshop as references for the colorists. Can you recommend a website where to read about color-management in photoshop as to stay within gamut, and 5. Would you recommend any specific image format. DPX, TIFF or PNG etc. for colorspace and accurate color rendition? Thanks guys, Will
