3CP HELPS TOP FILMS MAINTAIN COLOR CONSISTENCY
|March 11, 2008
The 3cP enables them to preview and communicate color decisions to
colorists and others in the post production process, whether they’re
producing dailies, doing pre-post, matching special effects or
performing the final color grade for the digital intermediate. The
system supports the American Society of Cinematographers Color Decision
List (ASC CDL) standard for the cross-platform exchange of primary RGB
and saturation color correction data.
Ueli Steiger, ASC, cinematographer on Roland Emmerich’s prehistoric
epic 10,000 BC used 3cP to communicate with the telecine colorists who
were working on the film’s HD dailies. “With 3cP I could establish a
color direction for the dailies and pass it to the telecine operator.
It was repeatable. If I had a photo of a shot in the system, it was
absolutely possible to reproduce it on the other side of the world in
telecine because they had all of the same parameters which 3cP has.”
Steiger also used the calibrated 3cP shots as references to guide the
final DI grading sessions at MPC in London.
Theo van de Sande, ASC, was the cinematographer on Walt Disney
Pictures’ father/daughter comedy College Road Trip. He also
employed 3cP on the film to establish color direction and consistency
in the dailies process.
