QuickTime Colour Management-With Resolve

Recommended Posts

I came across this very interesting video from Film Light, https://www.filmlight.ltd.uk/training/resources/truelight/QuickTimeColour.php, which talks about how Baselight handles the video tagging within quicktime. For me, and many others I assume, the "gamma" shift in quicktime playback has always been the biggest headache. After watching this video it seems like so many videos render out the incorrect TAGS for QuickTime to transform them correctly, thus they look "wrong". Either to washed out and desaturated, or much to dark and contrast. Yes, many people say "don't use quicktime" but the reality is, so many devices are based around the quicktime platform, just ignoring the problem seems irresponsible. Baselight looks like they have solved this with the way it encodes its videos. 

My question is, is there a way to control the Tags in Resolve? Is there a way to manually tag the QuickTime after export? How have others handled the "quicktime issue"?. Thanks
