I've used it when it was available for free as a Beta version, and I'm going to buy it soon.
It's a great tool for RAW files, though I've heard many good things about Apple Aperture as well.

I'm pretty sure the image data from Lightroom won't work with After FX. I think the only thing you could do would be to have reference pictures taken with a digital camera on set and then process them in Lightroom or Aperture to get the right look for post, but then you would have to start all over again for grading.

Hi Ram...

I've been using Lightroom for about 6 months now. It's main advantage is that it processes lots of images in a very short amount of time. For example, I can set up a template that can be applied to a sequence of shots I may import from a scene's shooting. I can save a crop (say 2:35 or 1:78) and tungsten or daylight settings that I have tweaked to more closely match the stock.

In other words, it's a great start. It also has pretty good sorting processes so you can save folders and name them and create various collections. On the last 10 day shoot i did, i shot 3500 shots ! And I was able to generate stills each day and eve that I could easily post and upload to places like Flickr. I would suggest that for colour correction, it's probably not so great. t has all the basic tools, but it's not as precise as PS and you certainly don't have layers or masks.

You can also VERY easily export the images in various formats. As far as doing CC later, it's really only ever going to be a reference that someone else would be able to try to match to.

I reckon it's pretty good value for money. I tried Aperture before that, but I actually found it to be VERY slow, but otherwise similar.



BTW, I have seen some great films coming out of the Sam Spigel film school there...I think there's going to some great features coming soon.....

You could shoot a macbeth chart in each scene. After your color correction all a colorist would have to do to match your work would be to look at the RGB values for one of the patches and compare those to the proper value that macbeth provides.
