Издательство Focal Press, 2003, -209 pp.During the time in which I have worked as a colorist, I have been constantly confronted with new challenges. Whether it was to change a gloomy afternoon scene into a sunny day or to simply create a particular color effect, each provided a new and exciting learning experience. Being familiar with the techniques and processes of color correction is vital for not only the operator but also the client. If the client is unfamiliar with the process, he or she is likely to come into the session with expectations that may be difficult to fulfill. Keeping these ideas in mind, we have compiled this book as a comprehensive how-to guide for taking full advantage of the color-correction tools contained within each of the software applications we mention. We also give the reader a basic knowledge of the techniques of color correction. This book is quite unique in that, along with the sample scenarios and tutorials, there are also Quick- TimeTM movies and Web page examples contained on the accompanying CDROM. These examples visually show the reader exactly how the effect or color correction was created. The book is divided into seven chapters. In Chapter One we cover the basics of color correction along with a small history of the process. Following this, we cover the role of the colorist along with how to create the ideal colorcorrecting environment. Chapter Two provides an understanding of the video signal and covers everything from what a waveform monitor or vectorscope is to descriptions of the individual video systems and standards. Chapter Three then describes the various recording formats that the operator may run across. Chapter Four covers the various color-correction tools contained in the software applications. Chapter Five takes us through the various forms of color correction. Chapter Six describes seven sample color-correction scenarios, along with hints and tips for color correction, followed by suggestions for the appropriate applications for various types of color correction. Chapter Seven is a series of tutorials that take us through the processes in a step-by-step fashion, with illustrations. Additionally, many of the tutorials contained in this chapter are accompanied by either Web page examples or QuickTime movies on the companion CD-ROM. Finally, we end with appendices that contain additional useful information, along with a comprehensive glossary.Getting Started The Video Signal Videotape Recording Formats The Color-Correction Tools Types of Color Correction Seven Sample Scenarios and Operational Tips Tutorials A: Additional Resources B: World Television Standards C: Color Temperature Chart D: Video Recording Format Chart
