  4. ACES otd - REC709 to SRGB (Davinci Resolve)

  5. Last week
  6. Media offline, player window - DaVinci Resolve

    That's strange. It's either a big or maybe, do you have an external matte that is offline? Maybe activated by mistake in the timeline level? Just thinking out loud
  7. Media offline, player window - DaVinci Resolve

    Never seen the highlight button do that to a timeline! Sounds like a bug. Are you working on v14 by any chance?
  8. Media offline, player window - DaVinci Resolve

    The problem was that I had the highlight button above the player window enabled, and therefore the player said 'media offline' even though all my clips except the first one on the timeline actually was online. Thanks anyway Bruno, always very helpful!

  10. Post your suite!

    This was my old suite: I put it together myself, but don't have it anymore, since I don't do any grading anymore :-) .
  11. ACES otd - REC709 to SRGB (Davinci Resolve)

    Here is a straight line ramp (Gamma 2.4), the resulting difference is equivalent: I would avoid sRGB and instead use Rec.709 Gamma 2.2
  12. ACES otd - REC709 to SRGB (Davinci Resolve)

    Well, that's wrong... And why is there an 'S' profile to the curves? sRGB and Rec709 are pure power law. (but as I don't know how the graphs were created I'm probably missing something). Steve
  13. ACES otd - REC709 to SRGB (Davinci Resolve)

    In Resolve the transforms are different:
  14. Scopebox experience?

    Very customizable, affordable, you can even use it as an external recorder. I feed mine via a Blackmagic MiniRecorder box. Works great!
  15. Scopebox experience?

    I quite like It. You have the choise or lots of different scopes and layout. Its rather precise and very cheap to bè an external scopes. The down side is that with resolve you must run it on a separate Mac computer.
  16. ACES otd - REC709 to SRGB (Davinci Resolve)

    Hi @Steve Shaw Yes, exactely, i know, in fact my original question was why in aces (davinci resolve) seams like the gamma change is a lot stronger and have a stronger effect in the Shadow area. I work around It not changing the odt but Just changing the output gamma
  17. ACES otd - REC709 to SRGB (Davinci Resolve)

    Just so you know the ONLY difference between Rec709 and sRGB is Rec709 is (nominally) gamma 2.4, and sRGB Gammas 2.2. There is no other difference. Steve
  18. Sony monitors

    I have the same experience with the PVM-series. I know it's not supposed to be a Grade 1 standard, but they were next to unusable and very experienced calibrators had lots of issues with them. We moved them over to our offline suites, and got them replaced with Eizo's.
  19. Scopebox experience?

    I see that Lowepost got a Scopebox software discount going from next month. Do you have any experience with it?
  20. Media offline, player window - DaVinci Resolve

    I'm not quite sure what problem you're describing. Did all the clips appear in the media pool when you originally brought in the AAF? Are these clips still there, but your sequence has now become unlinked to these clips?
  21. Hei all. I got all the clips on the timeline in Davinci Resolve perfectly conformed but the player window says that "media offline". I have tried to reload the AAF-sequence but no luck. Other sequences works fine.Any idea what is going on?
  22. Website showcase and career question

    I don't want to judge if you are ready to apply for job in a high-end post production house, but it's easy to read your taste and level of experience based on what you have put on your site. Joining one of the big houses is always a good idea for gaining more experience and learning from the best.
  23. Some works

  24. Yes You are right The main Horse is Baselight HDR Tools Baselight 5, perfect for this project , although ALogic started on Nucoda
  25. Earlier
  26. Sony monitors

    I can't trust any display that can't be user calibrated - ever. Having to add a LUT box to Sony display to calibrate them (regardless whether that is because of poor factory calibration, or die to display drift, as they ALL suffer) is just not acceptable in any professional display. We have not tested the v2 Sony X300, but the v1 versions we tested we not gamut accurate. But, I trust Juan's ability to test and verify any display - he really does know what he's doing! Steve.
  27. Alienware - We’re Game

    Thanks Margus
  28. Website showcase and career question

    Hi all, I wanted to ask a question and I thought the best way was first to show my work. So here's my website, I have updated it pushing on top what I like the most (I might be wrong and choose them based on feeling or difficulties, and something else is better to be shown first) anyhow: https://www.orash.it/ Now, I'm currently a freelance colourist based in Milan, Italy. I'm getting to the point where I need "bigger challenge" and learn more. Being a freelance in a small market makes it hard to find mentors and learn deeper technical and creative stuff. Having said so I'm thinking more and more to apply to big colour houses (in London as everywhere else I will have a visa problem). My question is, based on my work, do you think I am ready? How you think is the market right now, is it a smart move to go to some of the big house and become an assistant colourist? I would be happy to assist and learn for how long is needed, at the same time I'm starting to be a little old (37) and I wonder is it's a wise thing to do. Also, for the people in this forum that are already working in places like that, is it really that difficult as everyone says to get a foot in the door? cheers, Orash
