Matching footage

PostSun Jan 13, 2019 1:37 pm

Is there a way to match footage from a canon C300 mk ii with footage from Ursa Mini Pro?, by which I mean that they look the same aesthetically rather than splicing. We shoot a 2 camera set up with A cam as C300 mk ii and B cam Ursa Mini Pro and cannot seem to make them look the same. any help greatly appreciated. Cheers

an experinced artist should be able to get to a reasonable match quickly

kinda funny really... but no, my name is not Rube.... and yea i do have a clue how to match camera's ;-)

i'd think starting by watch Baselight's excelent tutorials on the subject would be a decent place to begin as the concepts and ideas are also valid in Resolve, although the names of tools are diffrent;
https://www.filmlight.ltd.uk/products/t ... iew_tl.php

This video covers two topics: traditional grading workflows, and the challenges faced with modern digital image acquisition and digital colour reproduction.

So that we can view modern workflows in the right context, Daniele Siragusano first describes the behaviour and limits of different traditional workflows when grading an image. He then goes on to explain the new challenges we face when mixing different cameras and different display technologies, so that we can understand how modern colour management concepts - like ACES and Truelight Colour Spaces - can provide an answer.


ACES is your friend on this file, as is a reasonable amount of seat time gradeing, haveing access to Baselight makes matching faster in my hands for sure, but i've got some worthwhile resualts in Resolve as well

Do you mean ... beyond whites are white, blacks are black and common elements are the same color? Resolve does have a kind of auto-match that might serve as a starting point. It's discussed in the manual. Mileage will vary, of course.

In the end, though, the main challenge will be trying to match "optics". The light path through the glass landing on the image sensor will have different physics and this will be apparent mostly because of differences between the lenses in use on the two cameras. This goes well beyond colorspace and value matrixing. It is why there is more than one kind of lens and many kinds of cameras and not just because the numbers coming out the back end can be modified to resemble each other. The math around *aperture* is immutable.
