Panasonic Collaborates With Pomfort

News Image
Panasonic has collaborated with Pomfort to introduce in-camera live grading for the VariCam 35, which can be interactively controlled by Pomfort LiveGrade Pro.

The camera now supports creative work with the image using 3D LUT (lookup tables) as well as CDL (colour decision list). Look metadata can be controlled and managed with the colour grading application LiveGrade Pro via an Ethernet or Wi-Fi connection. The camera also allows non-destructive or baked-in recording of look metadata.

"As workflows have changed, most productions are aware that post-production starts on the film set during shooting," said Rob Tarrant, European Product Marketing Manager for Panasonic. "Post-production colour management efficiency can be drastically improved by good preparation and pre-visualisation during shooting. Initialising the image look in-camera is the best way to enable a managed colour process throughout production and post-production."

LiveGrade has been designed to interactively apply and adjust looks on the live image of digital film cameras. By pre-visualising colour corrected images on set, LiveGrade supports the filmmaker for image composition, exposure control and lighting of a scene. The software establishes a starting point for the colour management process at the film set.

Live demonstrations of the in-camera live grading will take place at BSC Expo at the Richard Attenborough stage at Pinewood Studios, UK (30-31 January 2015) and at the Micro Salon at La Femis, Paris (6-7 February 2015).
