Sample text

If you’re in such a borderline situation and see that you’ve created an illegal color, the fix is fairly easy: either reduce the lighting level a bit (on a reflective surface) or toss in a little white light (with a strong colored light) to desaturate the color until the chroma reads legal. For lighting, you don’t really need to know much more than that! Leave the color burst and back porch measurements to the engineers. One of the great things about digital video is that we no longer have to worry about these obscure bits of the video signal; in analog days they were a great worry and deteriorated with each generation.

21 22 Lighting for digital Video and Television The video signal is measured on two devices, a waveform monitor and a vectorscope. In analog video days, these were both specialized, calibrated ­versions of the oscilloscope. Often, the two functions are combined in a single unit. 6) and vectorscopes of the past. Most nonlinear editing programs (Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple Final Cut Pro, Sony Vegas) now include built-in signal monitors. The analog waveform monitor basically measures the varying voltage of the signal across each scan line of the TV picture.

While this sounds easy, and often is, you’ll be astounded at how frequently it proves rather complicated. It’s easiest in a studio where you have full control. But when you’re shooting in a factory, or in an office where other activities must continue, you may find yourself truly challenged. Sometimes in a realworld situation you simply must live with a less-than-ideal situation and make the best of it. That’s when you choose the compromise that will look the best. There’s another issue related to color that you may run into: the CRI, or Color Rendering Index.
