Our great cinematography receives fine tuning from our in house colorist using various tools: Color, Color Finesse, Premiere, After Effects and Avid Media Composer. It depends on what is being color graded. At present, we mainly choose Color, version 1.5 from Apple, as we can use our color grading control panel, the Tangent Wave. This allows us to operate similar to larger color grading set ups such as the DaVinci and Baselight. The Tangent Wave can be used with DaVinci’s Mac Pro software version, which we currently do not have but are seriously considering as a future upgrade.
We are excited about the results that we achieve using Apple’s Color and find that the Tangent Wave makes our workflow faster and the color grading experience better. Color grading is fun to do and it’s amazing how an image that is already fantastic can be tweaked and given greater improvement. Also grading the color to achieve moods and effects is easy with our colorist’s skills.
