                                                                                                How HDR was used on Solo: A Star Wars Story

Join J. Schulte, Senior Image and Process Engineer at Industrial Light & Magic, for an exciting look at how the latest HDR Imaging and Display technology was used during the VFX and Post on Solo: A Star Wars Story. We’ll take a look at how the choice of cameras, color management approach and overall workflow design allowed for a seamless transition through the various stages of the VFX process to deliver the underlying HDR Data to the Cinema Screens and HDR in the home in the best possible way.

About the Speaker:
