apple color – work with R3D files natively?!

Just posted by Terrence Curren of Alphadogs fame to the FCP-L:

>From the Color list:

<< Hi there,

I was at the FCPUG Supermeet in Amsterdam and the first presentation was a
working
new Version of Color featuring R3D support. You can edit your footage in FCS
with the proxy
files created by the camera – send to Color and Color will access the R3D
files. First light will
be done in a new advanced tab in the primary in room!
I know that there are already screenshots about the new features floating
around.
But this was a working version!
No infos about release date.

Cheers,

Holger

Simultaneously, Mike Curtis is reporting similar news over at pro video coalition:

Apple Color support – same way last year there was a demo of Redcode import into FCP, they are demonstrating native R3D support in Color. You can work with up to 2K resolution from 4K footage (only extracting the 2K layer from the wavelet). You can then work with that footage at 2K, 1080, 720, 480, whatever res you want that is below the 2K source extraction. But YES, you can bring your 4K Redcode RAW files into the future version of Apple’s Color and work with the full frame, but only at up to 2K deliverable. You can also access the source RAW metadata, just like on camera and in Red Alert/Redcine, to adjust Saturation, Exposure, Tint, Black Level, Exposure, RGB gains, etc. (No Brightness (gamma really) or Contrast (S-curve really), but you can do those with Color’s tools). Merely a technology demo, no ETA on ship date from Apple – so I’d GUESS in next major release, which could be what – NAB next year? Dunno, my guess, not based on hard data.

Red One Redcode RGB mode is still under development – read that two ways if you will – pessimistic – “darn, still not done/shipping!” or optimist – “GOOD – they are still working on it, it IS coming.”

If you’ve got links to screenshots please post, my hasty google searches have proved fruitless thus far…

My Motion 3 mentor Mark Spencer has produced a new video tutorial explaining how to animate a photoshop document’s layers in z-space.  He’s posted it to the Pro Video Coalition website. Mark’s brain and collected works are required ingesting for all FCP and Motion users, so drop that beer and get hoofin’ over to this awesome video toot!

apple color – steve hullfish video tutorials

This just in from the FCP-L!  Steve Hullfish writes:

I just started doing a weekly series of color correction tutorials on
http://www.provideocoalition.com. They’re free. Each is between 3 and 12
minutes. Some will be quite basic and fundamental and others will be
very in-depth and “pro level.” Most of the tutorials utilize Apple
Color, but others use Final Cut Pro, Avid or Color Finesse. You can
subscribe to the tutorials via RSS if you want. The tutorials are
part of the newly revised edition of “Color Correction for Digital
Video” which Jaime Fowler and I wrote in 2002 (the first color
correction book on the market). The book is completely revised and
the new edition will be out in December.

click thru here for the Amazon link.  Looking forward to your Color tutorials, Mr. Hullfish!
