I have viewed Andrew Devis’ tutorial on matching cameras and I have also tried Colorista and Resolve. I’m still not happy trying to match my cameras. I have two Sony FX 1000s and a Panasonic AF100A. Under some conditions the difference is hardly noticeable because I use the Panasonic for the master shot in a three camera shoot. Usually the problem is reds and oranges. The skin colours are generally fine but dancers and actors with costumes in red and orange are problematic. I’ve heard that the biggest problem between is usually with blues and greens. I haven’t had too much of an issue with these. I have also tried Rematch but the rendering times are ridiculous. My project average an hour and a half. Maybe the solution is to replace these with three matching cameras. Or just replace the Sony’s with two Panasonic 250s. I’ve never hear a client complain but it still bothers me. Any thoughts?

You could try cropping the image (cropping the image helps isolate that information in the scopes.) On the color you want to match, then firstly use the waveform to match the luminance, and than use the vectorscope to match the hue and saturation?
It’s hard to make suggestions without an idea of what you’re working with. Can you post some stills?
Also, bear in mind you can set up cameras so it’s *impossible* to match them. I’ve seen it done on a shoot with AF100’s.
You can use the ‘DigitalColor Meter’ found in utilities to see the exact colour values… but bear in mind that there still may be some differences in light intensity and hue effecting the colour depending on the position of the camera’s.

Sorry this happened. There is a bug right now preventing launch on computers with dual GPUs. We’re working on a fix for that. In the mean time, you can disable one of the GPUs or roll back to SpeedGrade CC (7.1).
