TechCrunch TechCrunch has a great feature that takes you inside a production room to get a peek inside the workflows that go into making anime light.
The video is below, and if you want to skip to the part that’s actually really interesting, here it is.
If you’d rather watch the whole thing in its entirety, the video can be viewed here.
The tech behind the “dark room” is actually pretty basic, and the concept is really simple: A camera is used to capture a series of images from the room’s viewfinder.
Then, the images are then projected onto the wall with an LED lamp.
The room is lit with a custom software application called “Aulux.”
The whole process takes a few seconds, but you can do it in just a few minutes using the “Aux” app.
The process can be as simple as capturing a series and then applying the lighting to the series, or as complex as using the Aulux software to apply lighting and compositing effects.
The video above shows the basic Aulix workflow.
Once the series has been captured, the application can then be used to apply the lighting and composite effects to the images.
The application also lets you change the color of the images as well.
The lighting in the video above is done with “a combination of LED lighting, and custom compositing techniques,” TechCrunch writes.
A “dark-room” is basically a “room with the lights off, and composites the lighting,” but that’s not what the application is doing.
Instead, the AULX software is using an array of LEDs to light up the entire room.
The application uses an array (or set of LEDs) to light a room.
TechCrunch screenshot The software can be used on a variety of different types of cameras and sensors.
You can capture a sequence of images (a series of light-captured images) and then use the A ULX app to make the lighting changes on top of that.
TechTech and AULUX have a very specific workflow, so TechCrunch asked the two to walk through the process of creating a “Darkroom” from the start.
The AULx application is used on the Canon EOS 5D Mark III.

TechCards TechCARD The Aulx application can also be used with a number of cameras, including Canon Epson C1000, Nikon D700, Nikon S-Logic S-100, Olympus M.
Zuiko X, and Sony E-mount cameras.
TechHub screenshot You can also apply lighting effects using “a custom composited workflow” using “AULX,” but there are more options for light effects.
Tech Cards Tech CARD AULIX can make lighting changes for a series using a number, from one to five, of custom “light sources.”
The lighting can be set up in various ways.
TechCenter screenshot AULXX is also used to create “effects effects,” which are made from “a specific combination of lighting, compositing, and blending techniques.”
The effects can be made up of light, shadow, and other effects.
TechCards The A ULXX software allows users “to create and apply lighting, effects, and lighting effects,” TechCARDS writes.
“You can apply lighting changes to a sequence, from series to series, on a range of cameras.”
TechCARD AulX can also make “effects effect” which can “create a unique look and feel with a specific combination and composition of lighting.”
TechCERT TechCERV The AulaX software lets users create “effect effects,” and then “apply lighting, shadow and other lighting effects.”

You can make effects “by using light sources, such as lights, mirrors, or lenses.”
