Shooting on one Camera is most common, but more cameras can be managed. One deliverable is usually requested – typically Avid DNxHD or ProRes. The DIT role can be combined with video, if the shooting plans are complimentary. DIT applies sync’d sound and colour adjustments. If creative looks need to be developed, this should ideally happen during prep period with DOP.
Shooting 1 or 2 cameras is common. The DIT would be based near set – managing all media from the cameras, handling back ups to secure drives, adding colour adjustments, sync sound, and metadata inclusion. Two deliverables is usually required – typically Avid DNxHD or ProRes for editorial. And dailies version for DIR and DOP viewing. A dailies cloud delivery service can easily be arranged.
Shooting 2 or more cameras is common. The DIT is based onset right near cameras. Wireless links provided to each camera. Applying LUTs and CDLs, and managing the DOPs viewing experience, in either REC709 or DCI P3 colour space. Collecting frame grabs for lighting reference, with metadata inclusion. Creating all camera set up files, frame lines, frame leaders, focus and exposure management. Editorial and Dailies media created by a separate offset DIT.
