Ram,

The way I have always used the V3 of Paolo's Scene File is to get as much as possible latitude of the colors present during shooting. It is then when you can go to post and tweak, only if necessary, your footage.

In other terms, it provides you as accurate color representation of the colors (hence called "True Color") as possible, as opposed to RAW type of footage, in which you MUST do in post a lot of tweaks to develop the color palet that best suite the intention or the mood of the scene.

I know is sometimes difficult to grasp this concept, but the HD100 has no RAW sensor, hence you must set the parameters in camera to obtain the best representation of the true colors during your shooting process. Still you can do more tweaks during post, but they are, IMO, minimal. That is why I love them!

Hope this helps,

Luis Otero

Hey Tim.

I didn't notice that you updated the sticky to include TC 3 until today.
Thanks!

Hi Ram.

Luis already explained part of this but I just wanted to be add a couple of things. Difference scene files are published with different purposes. Sometimes you might want to create a definite look in the camera. This could be the case of a video production where you don't have much time to do post work before it's shown in your local news channel. In this case tweaking the camera to adapt it to the situation could be the best option you have.

In the case of "TrueColor" the idea was to get the most 1:1 configuration I could find. It's not about creating a "look" as much as giving you the most color information in order to create the look in post. The factory settings for the HD100 are not very accurate. Having said so, a lot of people use TC the way it is, with very minimal post work.

Hope this helps

Tim, Any updates for the files you posted?

I am about to shoot some stuff and I wanted to use some of your files. I just wanted to know if you have any updates on your files, form your own shoot or others, and if so, what are they?

Question for Paolo.

Hi,

When you were setup with the DSC chart and did your adjustments, did you use ITU-709 as the reference for the color gamut?

Hi Stephen.
I used DVRack with what it was the Vscope agt that time. I looked at the difference between 601 and 709 and there are pretty small. Here is a link to DSC's founder white paper about it. You can see the two color spaces side by side. http://dsclabs.com/Image%20Optimization%20040227.pdf
I have updated DVRack and I'll re-run the test and post the results asap.

Hi Brian,

I answered the Munich question in your other thread.
http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showthread.php?p=516824

Khondji also used a silver retention process for Se7en, but it is slightly different than Technicolor's ENR that Kaminski usually uses.
Se7en utilized Deluxe's CCE process, which has more grain and is even higher contrast.
So, I would suggest that to emulate Se7en, put the HD100 on +6dB and use my Bleach Bypass setting. You may want to increase the colour saturation slightly though.

Thanks Tim. You're The Man...!

Since I use the Mini35 to shoot and sinc eit already has substantial amount of grain, is it still wise to put the Gain up +6?

It is really up to you and what you can tolerate for post-production and final print. Personally, I avoid gain at all costs. If you really want to add more grain, there are plug-ins that do it well.

Just a quick question regarding scene files and user settings- Say I have a 256 MB memory card. Would I be able to set up all of these scene files on it, or am I limited to only a few?

you can only put 4 scene files on a card name EXT1 thru EXT4

you can pop the card into your PC ... this is such a dopey limitation, espcially since the scene files are so small.

so if you have some old 16mb/32mb cards, this is the perfect use for them.

Actually, it's more like I bought the wrong 256MB flash card for the Rebel, and discovered it will fit into the HD100. Just trying to find a use for it ;)
