COST-EFFICIENT IN-CAMERA GRADING
Preloaded looksAdjustable looks – total color control on setHigh creativity, low postproduction costsUniquely, AMIRA comes with a number of 3D LUT-based looks that can be applied while filming.
The pre-loaded LUT feature essentially amounts to in-camera grading; it allows cinematographers to craft a consistent, identifiable visual approach, even on small- scale productions that cannot afford to pay them to attend the grade. Documentaries, dramas and commercials often involve a number of contrasting looks for different narrative or thematic elements. With AMIRA these looks can be either ‘burned in’ to the recorded footage or used purely for monitor imaging. Either way, they give cinematographers and directors a greater degree of creative control on fast-moving productions, while keeping costs down for producers.
