Flanders Monitor Hot Buttons: LUM Coloring False Color Function
Excerpt from the lesson:
…When Shane toggles on F1, he can easily see the exposure in the image.
The Lum Coloring feature is one of the most powerful functions of the Flanders monitor. While other monitors have false color, they do not allow you to select your grayscale like with Flanders and SmallHD.
|PRO TIP: Shane uses the grayscale technique when working with green screens and typically works between 25 to 35 IRE. For high-key light balance scenarios, Shane recommends working between 65 to 75 IRE.
When the gray is consistent across the green screen, it indicates that you are perfectly balanced — not too hot or underexposed.
|IRE LIGHTING GUIDE:
Say you select F1 where the Lum Coloring function is in place; it then populates another monitor where you can scroll through every possible function within the monitor.
So, if you ever wanted to change your function, you would simply select the button you wish to change and then press enter and navigate to the function of your choice.
