ShotCompare shows the differences of two videos – and this can be used as a fact, like a proof to tell someone: “You see, this is what we got – and is what we made of it.” No need to convince somebody with words, just upload & show. We just had a case where we made an estimate based on some material samples at the start of production. After accepting the job, the first shipments came in. Here it became apparent that the material required more restoration work than was previously apparent.
We had the assignment to create a look for a daily soap. After creating 2 different looks, we would have actually rendered out 2 videos as usual and emailed them, or shared them on another share platform. This would have given the client the opportunity to see both looks again, one after the other.
I often use the ShotCompare to demonstrate to my customers small changes I have made to the LUT settings. This often gives the customer a better insight into our work. I have also found that communication with the customer becomes easier. Using the video comparisons, he can better describe what he wants or doesn’t want.
