Last Thursday Leandro did a Webinar for FilmmakingWebinars.com, entitled "VFX in the Color Bay." Using advanced techniques in Assimilate Scratch, he shows how to problem solve some last minute visual effects work while working in a color session with the client. Typically some shots that would have to be sent out to a VFX artist and returned back into the conform can now me handled on the spot by the colorist.
Here is a 5-minute sample of the session, which is available in its entirety for free at this link: VFX in the Color bay on FilmmakingWebinars.com
Here is the description of the webinar from the website:
The art of digital color correction is constantly evolving and systems and operators are becoming more capable. DI grading consistently moves beyond simple color correction and crosses the line into what used to be considered VFX. A modern grading session blends the two and makes the grading suite a very powerful, sometimes daunting, environment for polishing a film in many different respects.
In this webinar, we'll address the short history of DI color correction, including the transition to digital, how much VFX can (and should be done) in the DI bay and work through some hands on projects using ASSIMILATE's SCRATCH, including how to remove a boom from a shot, how to perform makeup and beauty work, and even replace an entire sky.
