Grading Control

On Set grading is available in two ways. Control using control panel of VariCam 35 or from third party’ products via Ethernet port or Wi-Fi interface. Grading result is stored to Main recorder, Sub recorder and V-RAW Recorder. VariCam’s 3D-LUT data can be delivered to color grading system at post process together with the V-Log clips. 3D-LUT data also can be delivered from In-Camera Color Grading system. 3D-LUT data (.vlt format) can be created at the test shooting and imported to VariCam on site using SD card as LUT to be applied for monitoring.
