Image State Adjustment in Adobe After Effects CS4 Color Workflows
Source: Adobe Systems
Digital color values that travel through video or digital cinema workflows can be understood and interpreted in a variety of ways. A correct interpretation of color appearance can be achieved by using color management and assigning ICC color profiles to imported footage in After Effects. This paper allows the correct color appearance to be translated into a common compositing color space (working space) defined for their After Effects project. The Color Management System (CMS) also allows for the correct display of colors from the project's working color space on their computer monitor as well as correct color output to a variety of different output conditions like high-definition TV, standard-definition TV, DPX values for film printing, or digital values appropriate for digital motion picture projection.
