Artificial intelligence is everywhere. Sometimes we don’t even know we’re using it. Yet it’s important to keep an eye on technology development and learn which useful tools it brings to the table. Coming up next week, Colourlab Ai offers a week-long virtual event for all things color and AI. Every day, from March 13-18th, participants will dive into new techniques and get to know the latest AI tools for color grading. Seminars, workshops, and presentations are free of charge. What’s on the program for Color Creative Week, and how to attend – let’s take a closer look.
As the event description states, it doesn’t matter if you are a seasoned colorist or just getting started.
This event is a chance for attendees to explore the latest in color grading technology, learn from industry experts, and connect with other professionals in the field.

AI tools for color grading and other highlights of Color Creative Week
Planned sessions on color and AI include showcasing different ways in which new tools can assist in color grading: from automatic matching and grouping to AI-generated look recommendations. One of the event lectures, for example, will be fully dedicated to tips and tricks on how to deploy advanced color-managed workflows in Adobe Premiere Pro.
Another seminar features the widely known AI language model ChatGPT. We previously gave several suggestions on how to support your writing with it. Apparently, ChatGPT is also useful for colorists and color scientists, and we can discover why and how on the second day of Color Creative Week.
Organizers have also invited Jeff Greenberg (aka Mr. Green), one of the trainers for the International Colorist Academy (a veteran trainer for Avid, Adobe, FCP, and Davinci), to talk about his intense experience with artificial intelligence. In the Office Hours session, he’ll give an overview from the editorial perspective on what new instruments you can implement in your postproduction workflow.
As a bonus, Color Creative Week will give away one Colourlab Ai studio license every day. This software (developed by a Hollywood-based startup Colour Intelligence) uses a neural network, which is trained for cinematic content, to simplify some of the color grading processes. For example, it helps instantly match hours of dailies to a graded clip or reference image.
Every day – new topic
The event sessions start each day at 10:00 PST (Los Angeles time). Here is a brief overview of the schedule and featured topics:
- Day 1 – Five ways in which AI can help with Color Grading
- Day 2 – ChatGPT for Color Science
- Day 3 – Premiere Advanced Color Management – ACEScct to Dolby Vision Master
