This masterclass offers an in-depth exploration of Color Management, Color Spaces, ACES and Workflow, aiming to provide a comprehensive understanding of the reasons behind different Color Spaces and effective methods for managing footage. The discussion specifically delves into the next phase of color management for on-set virtual production, emphasizing the transformative impact of color science in this evolving landscape.
Mastery of color control across cameras, LED displays, rendering engines, and on-set lighting is highlighted to efficiently realize artistic visions and avoid costly post-production issues. The masterclass draws inspiration from Picasso’s philosophy, referencing the SMPTE Rapid Industry Solutions initiative’s Color Council to recommend best practices and enhance color management in the virtual production ecosystem.
The significance of accuracy and reliability in virtual production, especially in maintaining color consistency when filming from LED walls, is explored, and provides an overview of essential tools for precise LED wall calibration in ICVFX environments, aiming to minimize efforts in both on-set and post-production for color correction. The importance of maximizing shoot days and ensuring high-quality, authentic image production is emphasized, particularly for creative teams in studio facilities.
Dive into the cutting-edge world of virtual production with our Masterclass on Virtual Productions, focusing on the powerful capabilities of Unreal Engine 5. This intensive course is designed to equip participants with the knowledge and skills to harness the animation full potential of UE5. From setting up animating characters to syncing audio-visual elements and employing advanced animation techniques, including physics and simulations.
Participants will gain hands-on experience in character rigging, and the integration of motion capture data for creating lifelike animations and cinematic storytelling.
During the day, attendees will have the opportunity to work on a group project, and receive individual consultation, to prepare them for project presentations, embodying roles from environmental artists to technical directors. Ideal for aspiring animators, directors, and technical directors, this Masterclass offers a unique blend of technical skill development and creative application, leveraging tools like Rokoko suit or move.ai for motion capture needs. With this software being provided for free, for educational purposes, this is a prime opportunity to explore the frontier of virtual production in a condensed, yet expansive format.
Participating in Virtual Production necessitates a comprehensive understanding of the intricate technical ecosystem it encompasses. This specialized masterclass is tailored for Directors of Photography (DOPs) and technicians keen on delving into the realm of virtual production in a LED Volume. It aims to equip participants with the fundamental skills necessary to navigate within an LED volume environment, shedding light on the myriad interconnected facets involved. Through this masterclass, attendees will gain depth insight into the LED Volume, including LED color management, HDR workflows, and dealing with camera artifacts.
The Masterclass will take place in the BUas LED Volume Studio – XR Stage.
