Final Cut Pro X 10.4 Simplifies Working in HDR

Dec 5, 2018

The release of FCPX 10.4 adds a lot of functionality and allows for smarter workflows when mastering in HDR. Version 10.4 supports most popular HDR formats, including Rec. 2020 Hybrid Log Gamma and Rec. 2020 HDR10.

With this new update Final Cut Pro gains access to an expanded range of brightness levels so that editors can output video to HDR monitors using I/O devices from AJA and Blackmagic with brightness levels up to 10,000 nits. The new color grading tools support both HDR and Standard Dynamic Range (SDR) video, and with tone mapping, users can easily change HDR to SDR output for broadcast.

Staff Pick - The Haunting of Hill House

Nov 26, 2018

The Haunting of Hill House is the latest horror series from Netflix which draws you in and puts shivers down your spine. Flashing between the past and the present, a fractured family confronts haunting memories of their old home and the terrifying events that drove them from it.

“As a fan of spooky shows, I watched this as soon as it was released and within mere minutes, I realized this show had one of the most unique looks I’ve seen in years” states LookLabs chief colorist Jeff August.“The blacks are blue and the highlights are gold/orange. The skin tones feel natural considering the overall color. I wasn’t sure I loved the look but as I continued watching I felt the pallet helped to create an overall uneasy yet hopeful feeling”.

If you are looking to achieve this look, start with SpeedLooks Matrix Blue to give you the creepy blue shadows.Then, add orange into the mid-tones and highlights to achieve the gold feel.All very doable with a minimum of work.

Check out the official trailer for The Haunting of Hill House and get ready for some shivers!
