How can I say the profession of one who color grades films, in German? In English this is said as "colo(u)rist" or "colo(u)r corrector".
This is a niche profession, however many of my family members work in this industry, so it comes up for me in conversations.
What I tried:
- I looked up colorist / colourist on wiktionary. Doesn't provide the definition I am looking for and has no translations.
- I looked for the article on English wikipedia. There is an article for Colorist which has a German version, but it's a different kind of colorist, and there's an English article for Color grading with no German version linked. This suggests "Colorist(in)" as a possible translation
- I checked on dict.leo.org, which gives Kolorist(in) as a translation, but doesn't say for which definition. (This is the dictionary my course instructor has recommended)
- I checked Kolorist(in) on dwds which does not include the definition I am looking for. Colorist(in) redirects to Kolorist(in).
