Houston-based digital cinema mastering facility Eye Candy has increased its color correction capacity with the addition of a new tool set for Nucoda Film Master.
With the addition of Digital Vision’s 2013 rev2 grading and mastering suite (including ACES [ST 2065-1-2012]), a non-proprietary workflow based on the Academy Color Encoding Specification, Eye Candy can read the ACES color space directly, de-bayer realtime and work non-destructively at half float from the R3d files without rendering.
Eye Candy’s new tool set includes, among a dozen upgrades, a Deformable Shape Tracker. This allows the colorist, for example, to track a woman’s lips as she speaks. The bezier curve will deform automatically with the motion of her mouth as she speaks without further intervention, allowing the colorist to precisely change of the color of her lips.
