Mixing Light Color Correction Podcast Series

Going Freelance As A Colorist + Using Scopes With RAW Footage

November 29, 2013

When is the right time for going freelance as a Colorist? Do scopes work with RAW? We answer Member questions in Episode 6 of our Podcast.


Episode 6: From the Mailbag

Going Freelance? Do Scopes work with RAW?

We’re back with another installment of From The Mail Bag.

Remember, if you have questions that you’d like to get an opinion onĀ please use the contact form. Your questions can be aesthetic, technical or even client related. We’d love to hear from you, and your question might make future episodes of From the Mailbag.

As usual, we cover two different topics:

Going Freelance
First up, we’ll discuss a question we got from a Mixing Light member about when is the best time to go freelance? Having all been freelance at one time or another, we’ll help our Member weigh the options and discuss some things not often considered when going freelance.

Scopes and RAW Video
Next, we got an interesting question about if/how scopes work with RAW video. This one gets a little technical – and Robbie gets a little worked up – when we discuss how RAW is not video and video is not RAW. . . and how scopes are, for the most part, scopes.
