A Beginner’s Guide to Color Management

In today’s age of raw formats, LOG recording, and multi-cam projects, Color Management is an essential concept for filmmakers and video professionals.

Color management is the process of transforming your footage from what the camera recorded to something your monitor can display.

There are many methods of color management, and a lot of things to learn in order for a full understanding.

If your projects only ever use one type of camera, that will certainly save you some time. But a professional colorist working with several cameras, formats, and delivery types should ideally know these… or work with someone who does.
