Hi,
Nowdays every still photographer has some skills on photoshop. I thought maybe it is time for me to go that way. so...
What is the best software for a cinematographer to use as a personal post station?
I though about Discreet Combustion because of it´s ability to work with Lut´s and files like cineon or dpx.
I think it i could try to learn it as a color grader and basic composer.
Is it a good choice?
i wouldn´t want to waste my time learning software that will be useless later.
I´d love to hear your thoughts or (even better) experiences on this.


P.D: I know lustre is better, but it is out of my personal budget.

Combustion is just fine. It really doesn't matter what software you learn on- the interfaces change depending on what you're using, but the underlying theory and practice do not. I first learned color correction and compositing on Combustion, and now I do it in programs like Fusion, Shake, and Flame.

Shake seems to have a pretty reasonable price, at least for mac, don't know how much it is for linux...
