A Colorist's Take on High Dynamic Range

Publish date:

Colorist Bryan McMahan talks to Digital Media World about his experiences grading high dynamic range video.

He says, "Currently, I think success in grading HDR footage depends on both a person’s expertise as a colorist, and the software he or she is using. The color correction systems are just coming up to speed with this format and, for that matter, so are the colorists. Like any new format it takes a little time to get used to working on it, and time to gain the knowledge of how things convert to different displays. But as always, the most important point is the communication between the cinematographer, the director and storyteller as to how their story should be seen. Just because my car will go 200 mph doesn't mean I have to drive it that way all the time.”
