Black Friday Deals 2020 – Workshops by MZed
MZed has quite a long history of holding quality workshops mostly targeted at creatives all around the globe (like this one here by Tom Cross ACE). Their workshops are hosted by professionals and highly regarded members of their respective field of work and these classes are mostly not only about learning a certeain piece of software or how to light a scene using 3 lights. They are also about the accompanying emotonal impact on the audience, lots of background intel, the whole creative process from start to finish, not only a simple how to.
For Black Friday 2020 MZed is offering the following:
Lutify.me is an online tool for managing and creating your LUT library within a convenient online interface (read here for our coverage). There are a a bunch of pre-defined LUTs available, and, depending on your tier level, you can also export your very own LUT creations to use them in any NLE.
Since the higher price for the professional tier is only valid in the first year, I think it’s the best choice, really. For Black Friday 2020, they offer 30% off of everything, jsut make sure to enter the coupon code BF202030OFF at checkout.
FilmConvert Nitrate Deals
Once you’re done shooting you need to get going with your post production workflow. And one of the easiest ways to achieve consistent, yet appealing, color grading is to use FilmConvert Nitrate. It emulates real photochemical film stock in order to get that nice look you’re after.
FilmConert comes in many shapes: as a standalone version, as a plugin for Adobe After Effects or Premiere Pro, as a plugin for Final Cut Pro or as an OFX plugin (for use with DaVinci Resolve for example). The standalone version is the most expensive one but it includes all plugins as well.
There’s also the new CineMatch plugin for color matching different cameras in post production.
That’s it for today, we’ll keepp posting more deals once they surface. Since we try not to publish just random deals, we will categorize them as far as possible.
