Home > News > THE LAST JEDI: Utilized 1,000 SkyPanels over the course of the shoot

From the massive stages to location work, the production reportedly utilized 1,000 SkyPanels over the course of the shoot. SkyPanels are fully tunable, with correlated color temperatures adjustable between 2,800K and 10,000K with accurate color rendition across the entire range. 

Yedlin says he consistently used the ARRI SkyPanels in HSI (Hue, Saturation, Intensity) mode, for several reasons. “In HSI mode, the chromaticity tracks almost perfectly,” he says. “If you set it to its chromaticity coordinates for hue and saturation and then you turn the brightness up and down, you have unbelievable solid tracking of the color. The thing that is amazing about HSI mode is that you can get to any color that the SkyPanel can make with only three channels of DMX data.

The fact that we can get to any color with only three channels and that the chroma tracks really well as we brighten it and darken it, is why we used HSI.
