To help you find out more about maximising your DCP from shooting through to post, fxguide and Adobe are presenting a free event during SMPTE15 in Sydney, in association with Sydney ACM SIGGRAPH (Professional Chapter) and Australian Cinematographers Society.

The event will feature Lars Borg, Principal Scientist at Adobe and of the leading minds behind ACES, and Bill Roberts, Senior Director of Professional Video Product Management at Adobe.
