Video Color Target
Specifically designed for today’s video production workflow, the Video Color target includes four rows of color chips designed for video capture and editing, giving you a powerful chart to speed up color grading.
Chromatic Colors: six chips specifically designed to align with the color axis on a vectorscope
Skin Tones: ranging from light to dark with subtle undertones
Linear Grayscale: six steps for even gray balance, including highlight and shadow regions
Highlight and Shadow Grays: six black and white patches, including a high gloss black to capture the full range of your video camera
White Balance Target
Starting with an accurate white balance ensures the colors you capture are true and provides a point of reference for post-shoot editing. The White Balance target is a spectrally flat target that provides a neutral reference point across mixed lighting conditions that you encounter during a video shoot. Since the target reflects light equally across the visible spectrum, creating an in-camera custom white balance can properly compensate for varying lighting.
With this color chart, you’ll be able to:
- Eliminate color casts
- Improve the color preview on your camera’s display so your histograms are more reliable
- Make post-production color correction and editing faster and easier by eliminating the need to neutralize each frame individually
“Why can’t I use just any white object for white balancing?”
White balancing on a piece of paper or other gray element in the scene may seem like a simple workaround, but most objects are not actually neutral under all lighting conditions, and they’re certainly not consistent.
An inaccurate white balance will result in color casts, and a lack of consistency between lighting conditions, making color corrections extremely time-consuming.
