Artificial Intelligence & Color Grading: Who's in Favor?
The topic is based off the subject this NoFilmSchool feature.
Right off the bat, I personally support any piece of technology that acts as a shortcut for workflows.
I'm, however, curious if certain editors in specific places will even care about this.
For instance, in Japan, 90% of video production is straight off the camera and onto the TV. Color Correcting is virtually useless, (at least in urban settings) because of the sheer amount of lights pouring from all directions, especially in places like Shinjuku. So they just do "more or less" white balancing, film, cut and boom, its published!
Unless, you settle for Orange Teal or some desaturated color scheme, which tends to be the case if someone REALLY wants to color urban footage in japan.
But that's my cookoo brain getting into many details! What about you chums? Are you in favor of this tech?
