Zissou's a little bitch.
blow the whites.
i felt the need to bump this.. purely as its so damn entertaining to re-read
Obviously Zissou never saw a Wes Anderson or Noah Baumbach film?
Get over it, Zissou.
I was working on a project, and my animator said he "crushed some of the blacks."
i thought this thread was deleted.
Hooray ! 4 pages in and we've finally got the word 'curve' into the discussion. That's always what I thought it to mean, and am mystified why no one had brought it up. Including me.
popping up the black levels is a digital photo trick to add drama to an image without going straight for the contrast and frying the highlights or muddling up the midtones.... just a bit can pop a pic in post....
but yes, desaturation + "crushed black levels" so the curve is flat at the bottom is also a lazy way to fix stuff that wasn't lit too well.....
