VFX - Resolve Roundtrip

Recommended Posts

Currently i'm working on a project shot with Arriraw format, VFX was done in Prores 422 HQ,  but when i test a VFX shot with my locked color grade, the result is quite different, the contrasity is diffrent from what i've graded. Should i tell VFX Department deliver DPX for me instead of Prores 422?

It will not solve the issue, just tell them it doesn't match and they will make it match.

Can VFX  department confirm, that source footage and vfx shot match 100% on their side?
You should compare files with and without vfx. Probably this isn't their fault. Maybe they received incorrectly encoded prores. For example Premeire Pro has some issues with video/full levels on DNxHR 444 import. Maybe somebody did something wrong  somewhere in the pipeline before VFX. Import a shot that VFX received for their work and import the shot with their work done and compare it.

Maybe the VFX artist worked without color management? I assume he's working on AE and he didn't select the right colorspace?

If you can provide more detail it would help.   What programs are you and the VFX team working in?  Normally VFX is always done in linear colour space.
