Compositing techniques and luts

I have been struggling with the lighting in the new set visuals as Cycles is such a different rendering system to cinema 4d. And I over read someone on a forum talking about the compositor… now while i have know that the compositor is there and I have dabbled I have never seriously had a good look at what it can do for me.

Remembering some basic colour correction ideas from my photography days I have worked out this little system to work out the lightest and darkest point and I’m still working out the best way to find the grey point… although this might want to be a floating point as you can burn out the lights that can be very useful for a more punchy look.

So this is a massively useful tool that I really shouldn’t have been overlooking… Will also see if I can find luts for this tool… or it may be fun to make my own system for look ups.
