LightIron Digital – DIT Training
If you’re a DIT (or want to be) and interested in learning more about LightIron’s own brand of DIT carts and software then this post is for you. I love LightIron’s philosophy that their training is ‘in house and on the house’ and with their recently announced Outpost University they’re extending their training online with 2 hours of free video lectures as well as their usual follow on ‘in person’ free 3 session courses.
The State of D-Cinema course covers file-based workflows, best practices for storage and archive, strategies for improving hand-off to post, insights on the newest technologies in the marketplace and creative options for on-set color correction and look management.

Jay breaks down how the bars are designed and how to use them effectively.
