King Kong VFX Realized using Autodesk Solutions !!


Ideas for 1930s Adventure Realized by Autodesk technology
- Press Release : Color grading for Universal Pictures' King Kong was realized using media and entertainment technology from Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADSK). Visual effects facility Weta Digital relied upon Autodesk's Discreet Lustre system to digitally color grade the entire film.
Senior Visual Effects Supervisor Joe Letteri summarized Weta Digital's use of the Discreet Lustre system on the film: "
Weta Digital used the Discreet Lustre system as part of the entire visual effects color grading process while making King Kong. We used it to grade at the front end, before the computer-generated elements were added, and also at the very end of our pipeline to grade the final images. As the elements came in, the Lustre system helped us work out the look for complex environments like Skull Island and 1933 New York." Lighting and color are key aspects of King Kong. The Discreet Lustre system influenced the film’s creative process. The filmmakers knew they had control and flexibility in the digital grading post-production phase, which gave them more freedom while shooting. For example, when shooting took place at various times of day, the lighting could later be corrected with the Discreet Lustre system to match the preferred lighting and time of day.
