Color Science for Film, Video, and CGI
Level 7
This introduction to the science behind image digitization, tone reproduction, and color reproduction in film, studio video, and computer generated imagery (CGI) explained and demonstrated the color science that underlies each of these domains and details how color is represented and processed as images are transferred among them. Topics included the different forms of nonlinear coding used in film, video, and CGI; why one system's RGB does not necessarily match the RGB of another system; color measurement instruments such as densitometers and colorimeters; monitor calibration; and color management technology. This course was suitable for people who have no fear of mathematics and who are experienced in creating or manipulating digital images.
