[Tig] DI workflow, capabilities and requirements

I have to agree with Steve here.
What I've always wanted is some way of getting what I shoot transferred
the way I want, at least initially.
That will obviously need some kind of reference.
In the past I've shot a grey scale in a reference light and asked for
the TK to be lined up to that and then for the colourist to take his
This would then allow me to see the colour/exposure as I intended it to
be, everything after the grey scale may be under/over and an different
colour, it doesn't matter, that's what I intended.
Unfortunately it seems that dailies colourists could never resist
"correcting" my "mistakes".
I look forward to LMS working but at present it really only works in a
conventional optical print finish process.
I know they're working on a DI version, jam tomorrow :-)
I'm also aware of 3c), although I think limiting it to a Mac limits
this, as well as the Iridas approach.
I expect to see lots more :-)
Steve is certainly right when he talks about automation in the dailies
process and removing bodies, it's certainly what Kodak seem to have in mind.
I love the idea of set LUT's that are non-destructive and get the "look"
that I want from the beginning, I then look forward to altering that
look with my favourite colourists.
