LightDensity enables customers with their own stand-alone densitometer to convert density readings into XYZ profile data for use in building Film Emulation and Look LUTs LUTs via ColourSpace.
- SpecTD & SCD integration
- X-Rite 310T integration
- Film Emulation LUTs
- ColourSpace compatible
The maths behind density to profile data is no simple conversion, and for best results both the neg. Status-M and print Status-A density data is used in generating the final XYZ profile data, combined with a mathematical profile of a film projector lamp, etc.
Measuring film density accurately is key for generation of the final calibration LUT, and care must be taken when measuring the film flats with a hand operated densitometer. For the most accurate film density measuring a fully automated system is recommend, and the SCD Stepper Controlled Densitometer system can be purchased from Light Illusion for this purpose.
