For graded dailies creation, looks created in Livegrade can easily be transferred to Silverstack Lab. The provided looks act as a starting point for rendering dailies from camera original raw data into multiple formats. Livegrade and Silverstack Lab just added new color grading nodes and the option to adjust the intensity of grading nodes, so that color grading in Livegrade and Silverstack Lab gets boosts in speed, precision, and flexibility.
The curve nodes in Livegrade and Silverstack Lab are powerful grading controls for applying creative looks and secondary color corrections. Having these grading tools available for live grading and dailies creation adds a lot of flexibility and allows to work more precisely compared to grading only with ASC-CDL compatible grading nodes. This article explains third-party compatible export formats and shines a light on the benefits of staying within the Pomfort ecosystem.
Pomfort products such as Livegrade Pro and Silverstack Lab come with a broad range of color grading features and share the same, flexible concept of grading nodes. In this article, we want to take a look at what you can do with these grading nodes, illustrate a few best practices for using them in real productions, and point out the consequences for the production’s color pipeline and workflow.
With the last update of Livegrade, numerous new features and grading controls have been added, which offer more variability in creating and adapting looks and further support the DIT in making them accessible directly on the film set. Over the past few months, we have posted a three-part series on this topic on our blog, which we would like to put in an immediate context in this compilation article and thus offer a good foundation for making working with Livegrade a real pleasure.
