[Tig] NEW Kodak Super 16 mm "FILM SYSTEM" for HD
Tue Mar 8 15:45:18 GMT 2005
My guess is that this is an intelligent blend of the Kodak TCS hardware,
Kodak science (LUTS) and a primetime like stock.
Scan only could mean it wont print without cross curves, and it could mean
that the intention is to calibrate the telecine and apply Kodak LUTs to
design the stock to be daylight, tungsten different EI, etc etc. Probably
means both. Process would be TK-Kodak-Color corrector in the traditional
flow, or in DI could be scan + Kodak or Kodak + color.
I have been playing with TCS recently and its an interesting tool, Like most
of out tools it is capable of more than it was designed for, and this new
stock approach should look great, as long as the DP informs the colorist of
how he exposed it :-). Currently TCS reads keycode, but in the new stock
that wont be enough.
TCS hardware is pricey, but if the results are good...
Other problem is TCS hardware is SDI only, so for data there is a question
on how the LUTs are applied. Software solution?
All this is of course just speculation, and guesswork, but it does not seem
so strange to me.
