While working at Volition, I found myself spending a lot of time explaining to artists why they were having issues getting their content to look the way they wanted across multiple displays. I knew there had to be a better way to get the info out, so I created this training video on what color management is.
Unfortunately because I did this on my own, I didn’t have the budget to do things like rent a teleprompter, or get a UI team to do professional graphics. It’s still a good piece of information, but I always wish I could do more to make this just a little more professional.
It was a big success with our artists and even though they may not be able to troubleshoot color management issues, they do come to me now better informed on what the problem is. They also go out of their way to calibrate their monitors too, so it’s been a big win for the studio. I petitioned the art council if we could release the video publicly since I felt it was a valuable resource for any artist struggling with color management issues, and they agreed.
