  • house keeping

    The menus of this site were getting too crowded with entries over time. I rearranged some of the menu points and brought three topics up on the main menu structure: HDR.toodee.de Learning ACES Understanding ACES I hope in this way the site is easier to navigate again.

  • projects: February 2021

    After a quiet January without any project, here is the first project of 2021 for Deutsche-Post and DHL. The main task was to “paint” the building outside yellow and slightly altering the age of the actor in one shot plus some display inserts. A fun one week job. https://www.markenfilmberlin.de/index.php/benjamin-brettschneider-dpdhl-vogelcheckt/ The second project for the month […]

  • project review: 2019-2020

    One of the longest projects I have ever worked on: The VW project for the new ID.4 started in November 2019 and I worked on it (with a long corona pause) until July 2020. The project contains two campaigns for two versions of the car. The format mix of 25 & 50 fps on the […]

  • Resolve Studio HDR tests

    Why can’t I see a proper HDR preview on an iMac2020/MBP2018 UI screen? In FCPX this is possible. For some time now I am testing with HDR content in FCPX and Resolve Studio. FCPX works best for me with Alexa LogC material in HDR/WideGamut projects. In Resolve I set the project to ACES 1.1 and […]
