Resolve’s tracking tools and Power Windows with the aperture correction helped Nakamura to emphasize specific objects in the frame with some additional sharpening. “The filmmakers’ vision was of a burnt, almost ashen like look. Everything had to be muted and cold looking,” said Nakamura. “But the actors still needed to maintain their human qualities, and be seen in warm light without causing the darkness around them to appear muddy. To accomplish this in his films, and with Prometheus in particular, Ridley likes to make use of the aperture correction feature to subtly enhance the sense that the images have a more limited depth of field. It helps direct the viewer’s eye right to a specific person or object without looking like a special effect,” he said.
