Working with Arri alexa LOG C footage in after effects

Here is a quick tip about how to properly use Arri log C footage in after effects!

1. First set your after effects project settings to

32 bit Float and working space to sRGB IEC61966-2.1

2. Then import your footage into after effects

Now right click and press interpret footage on your shot or image sequence. Go to the color management tab.

Tick the little empty check box "Show ALL available Profiles"

And then for assign profile choose "Universal Camera Film Printing Density"

3. Click ok.

Now your video should display properly and be alot easier to work with. Now when we export we need to still use that same "Universal Camera Film Printing Density" setting in the export module.

That should do it!

It's been a while since I posted but here's why...

Hi folks! For those of you who don't know I work as a VFX Supervisor and I got wrapped up in a BIG vfx project called Woodlawn for the last year.

I supervised a team of hand picked artists to create digital crowds for over 350 stadium shots. Many of which contained 25,000-50,000k digital people. We used a plugin called goleam for maya and rendered the crowds with vray for maya.

At any rate I got so busy I neglected posting to my tips blog,

If you are interested here is a short vfx reel showing some of the work we did.

Here is the article about the project on Goleams website

VFX isn't easy... keep plugging everyone. Thanks for visiting my blog :)
