We understand the true value of colour grading, its partnership with finishing, the connection with the audience and the transformation that beautiful colour grading can give – and we do it for clients all over the world.
As projects become ever more complicated, the requirement for advanced tools for managing the logistics and flow of VFX shots and their grading becomes increasingly important.
The Look has proprietary tools that enable lens effects, film grain, denoise and complex VFX matte controls for detailed work for bedding-in advanced VFX shots. This is combined with industry leading enterprise hardware for six grading systems to play 4K realtime simultaneously.
