MatchLight is an Image Matching System that enables LUTs to be automatically generated by the direct comparison of two or more images, creating a LUT that matches the before image to the after.
- Automated LUT Generation
- Match Cameras
- Extract Grades from Before/After image pairs
- Use Image Sequences
MatchLight can generate LUTs automatically from 2 or more images - original and graded versions - with MatchLight automatically using the difference between the two to generate the LUT.
The LUTs generated can be loaded into ColourSpace for LUT format conversion, or into SpaceMan to generate ICC profiles.
Cinematography is where a lot of creative material starts its life, and there are some very specific issue to overcome, from on-set look management through the use of ColourSpace generated LUTs, to a need to match the images captured via different cameras.
MatchLight is an Image Matching System that enables LUTs to be automatically generated by the direct comparison of two or more images captured by different cameras, and create LUTs that therefore match one camera image to another.
Another application MatchLight has been used for to great effect is the generation of Film Emulation, or Look, LUTs to enable digital captured imagery to feel more like traditional film captured footage.
A good example are the ImpulZ and Osiris LUTs from visionColor, as well as LUTs from LookLabs, as well as the colour services provided by TrueColor.
