It’s not just for the color page.
If you’re learning compositing, you’ll want to learn the basics of color management.
For VFX workflows, it’s important to know the color pipeline to keep your output consistent.
You’ll want to know your color space & gamma for the original footage, doing your work (usually linear gamma), output from Fusion, and any viewing transform you’ll want to use.
It can be a lot to keep track of at first, so here’s an explanation that should help.
In this video from Casey Faris, you’ll learn about:
- The three basic jobs of color management
- Using a Color Space Transform node
- Converting to linear gamma
- Converting into a log space for grading
- Generating a preview LUT for the Fusion viewer
