Tutorial: Color Grading in ACES on baselight and the theory of ACES
I recorded a combi-tutorial, using baselight:
1. Dealing with Highlights in a LOG and ACES timeline
2. Differences and benefits of ACES
3. The theory of ACES
In this breakdown I show some of my techniques that I am using for beauty commercials.
I recorded the monitor output and edited the 30 min realtime-grading down to this 3 min clip.
To be frank I don’t show to much of the beauty retouching and skin grading.
The model has a very nice skin and with the help of Garnier it was not much work for me.
I hope you enjoy the breakdown.
Please watch it directly on VIMEO
On my Facebook Fanpage I am posting and explain my actual gradings and give some tips.
Furthermore I started to publish every week one of my grading rules.

In this tutorial I explain my workflow for the Akbank TVC.
Especially the use of alpha channels and how you deal with it in Assimilate Scratch.
Because of the codec and the size the highlights in the tutorial are a little bit crashed…sorry for that.
You can see the better quality of the commercial when you watch it directly her on vimeo.

In this Coca Cola commercial we had to combine lots of different footage. Arri Alexa and youtube footage doesn’t really fit together. So we decided to make a natural, colorwashed grading only for the Alexa shots. I gradet only the singing kids and the couple.
Freelance colorist, Andreas Brueckl shares a tutorial on how to create a monochromatic „silver look.“ The footage is from the great directors of www.kronck.de. Normally the set design and the dresses have to be in the same monochrome kind of color. In this case everything is warm, but we tint it blue to achieve the silver look. So you have to keep the highlights neutral and tint the rest dark blue with keys and masks.
Another tutorial by Andreas Brueckl: Surrealistic skin tones are very popular with photographers and photoshop artists. In this tutorial Andreas shows you how to create the look with Assimilate SCRATCH. Have fun! www.colormeup.de
