ZeissNew lens metadata could really help to smooth post production lens corrections

RedShark at IBC 2017: Zeiss make incredible glass for cameras, but is there more that lenses can do for filmmakers than simply transmit light to the sensor? We caught up with the Zeiss at IBC 2017 to find out.

The CP.3 XD line of lenses from Zeiss promises to help smooth workflows by providing frame accurate metadata for post production, providing such information as frame distortion and shading characteristics. Aspects that can change depending on the iris setting or focal length being used. The XD line allows filmmakers to gain access to these characteristics for any given frame in the footage, and apply accurate corrections in post.
