Massive LUTs Required for HDR

According to at least one study, in order to achieve a comparably error-free 3D-LUT to those used for SDR, a LUT size larger than 55x55x55 is required for 12-bit HDR (Rec.2020 ST2084). Of course, such gargantuan LUTs aren't currently feasible! "In 10-bit SDR, in order to achieve unnoticeable interpolation errors using the trilinear interpolation method,... Continue Reading →

Instead, we’re offering subscribers the opportunity to download clips, allowing you to view the picture as it was intended.

ICtCp, or Why We Can’t Have Nice Things

Here at the Daejeon Chronicles, we've tirelessly championed RAW for a long time now, for a multitude of reasons: it responds better to grading than heavily compressed, low bit rate chroma subsampled codecs and is less prone to banding; sharpening, noise reduction and white balance aren't baked into RAW files, giving more flexibility in post;...

Grade Reveal & Download with Grain Added

This video is the culmination of the many changes we've made since around the time we switched over to P3-D65 - some tiny, some significant - from shooting S-Gamut3.cine rather than S-Gamut3, avoiding yellow in the false color guide of the Ninja V for anything but specular highlights, monitoring with video levels instead of full...
