Prospect 4K and 25P

I observe the available Adobe Premiere presets in Prospect's 4K workflow do not seem to include a 25P option, only 24P or american rules for video. Does anyone know if there is a 25P version in more recent builds?

No need, create you own preset, there are just too many combinations to have preset for every shooting/editing mode.

1) Select New project
2) Select a preset that is close in resolution and frame rate.
3) Click "Custom Settings"
4) Experience more power, adjust however you like.
5) If you like you new creation, press "Save Preset"

Thank you again David.


I seem to recall that custom option. Will give it a try.

The SI2K camera owner has a Prospect 4K licence which has pride of place on the office wall. All he has to do now is come to grips with it and probably buy a decent editing computer to rent out to his clients.

One other question. Can custom lookup files be created in Prospect 4K and taken back to the SI2K camera?

Hi Bob,
I don't think that changes made to .look files in Prem/Prospect can be exported back to the SI-2K camera.
If you want to create new or modified looks away from the camera you would need a stand alone copy of Speed Grade On Set - it's much more fun than the embedded version that comes with the SI-2K.

You can export looks back out from Premiere that work with the SI-2K, athough Speed Grade OnSet is a nice solution.

Thank you Rohan and David.

I'm also after making something which looks like two older 80's stocks, Eastman 7240 and Agfa Gevacolor XT320. One for 70's Kodachrome with its brown-green bias might be also handy one day and could then be made fairly close to the BBC "Vera" telerecording look, which was basically any colour you liked as long as it was khaki.

I assume that the "save" function in the metadata page puts the new .look file somewhere which can then be copied. I shall search for it. Any hints which speed up my knowledge quest remain much appreciated.

To generate LUT from a filter stack within Premiere.

1) Only use 32-bit filter.
2) Match sure you timeline resolution and frame rate matches your source source
3) Start will only one clip in a sequence (not a requirement just easier.)
4) One you have the look you want, go to File -> Export Movie and select CineForm Look Exporter as the file type.
5) set you name e.g. MyNewLook.look
6) In the Compiler Setting you can select what features to bake into a single look (the defaults are normal correct.)
7) Export/Render.

In a second of so you have created and installed a new look, and can be added to any CineForm clip for realtime color processing.
