Sony Electronics, Inc. has introduced a Virtual Production Tool Set.
Set for release this summer, the tool set works with the Sony Venice and Crystal LED and other HDR-enabled LED walls to improve performance and help solve common virtual-production challenges such as color matching and moiré.
The Camera and Display Plugin is a software plugin for Unreal Engine that allows productions to identify and solve common virtual-production workflow issues. One of the most common is that the virtual art department is unable to anticipate the actual color performance of specific cameras. When installed in Unreal Engine, the Virtual Venice in the Camera and Display Plugin allows productions to reproduce the settings of the Venice, Venice 2 and Crystal LED display; this allows the VAD to create assets using the Venice's color pipeline during preproduction.
Color Calibrator is an application for Windows 10 to ensure proper color reproduction when shooting LED walls with the Venice. An intuitive interface calibrates the look of LED walls, including HDR-enabled LED walls, to the intended look of the camera.
