Pop [In reply to] Can't Post

Yes, that's exactly what I am understanding here. But what the camera is trying to provide as flat, they are defeating by putting the "pop" back artificially through on-set saturated colors and makeup for filming. What you are saying seems to be in conflict with what they are doing.

flat does not mean without color [In reply to] Can't Post

you want a more saturated set => always easier to take away color than subtract it

but a flat contrast means there is no loss of detail in the highlight and shadows so you have leverage in post.

seems like they try to leave the most options open.

Agreed. [In reply to] Can't Post

The idea is to create the widest latitude possible at exposure/capture.... wether it's on a film negative or a CMOS Digital RAW Bayer pattern sensor.

It's interesting to note that they are not SUPER saturating every single color/texture/detail of every frame of every scene.

There is a certain aesthetic that they are looking for. (There won't be neon colors in The Hobbit).

By super or over saturating elements of a shot they can control those differently from other areas in the same shot.

Bottom line... it's about have pinpoint control on every level over virtually every detail.

Middle Earth is New Zealand!
