    In Baselight Sony F55 Importing clips are not showing Poper S-Log

    Well, I don't have any Sony footage right now, but I would set working color space to some Sony flavor if all material is coming from Sony camera. I would leave input on automatic from metadata, set color result from stack and for DRT you can try Truelight CAM or Arri Photometric. Viewing color space I assume you want to be P3 DCI, if you monitoring on projector or P3 capable display. You can also set white point in Mastering color space. That should give you clean color space journey.

    For me your setup looks completely wrong. To my understanding working color space should be scene referred while yours is display referred. Another thing is grade result should be from stack and on top of that you don't have DRT. Maybe I'm wrong. If everything is setup correctly you should see properly interpreted image which is not looking LOG. If you really want to look at the LOG image you can just change the interpretation to let's say REC709 so DRT is not applied or you can use Color Space identifier. In the input menu you can force slog 2 or slog 3 interpretation.

    Daylight as a dedicated Color platform

    To be honest, I've never used Editions. I've tried once but I was so frustrated with Avid interface and lack of realtime playback so I gave up. Daylight is very capable software color grading wise. You should check that trial.

    Daylight doesn't have timeline so it's not like Baselight. It has all the tools but conforming is limited to one video track with simple transitions. Other than that is very capable.

    Baselight, ACES, BLG and Nuke/Flame

    Yeah, I had that feeling also. We will try with OCIO color management tomorrow. Hope that will change something.

    Baselight, ACES, BLG and Nuke/Flame

    Thanks again Andy! All that make sense and is very similar to my understanding. I've tested BLG ACES workflow today with colleagues and while Flame side was pretty straight forward and successful, Nuke was giving us very hard time. We also had negative color values issue, but I already know how to deal with it. Basically, for the test that worked on Flame we were using AP0/2065-1 as input and output color space for BLG plugin, running Flame in ACES color template, all smooth, matching with reference DPX 99,6% In Nuke we tried all the possible combinations but no luck. We had success using so called 'telecine' script preset in Nuke and that works fine, but ACES nope. Maybe I'm missing something. Also Nuke color management is far from artist friendly.

    Baselight, ACES, BLG and Nuke/Flame

    Hi Andy, thank you for answering. Can we break it down more detailed? So, if I understand you correctly, from the Baselight side: - I should use ACES preset for BL project - my working color space should be ASCEcct/AP1 - my DRT should be set to Truelight CAM or ACES RRT 1.0.1? - mastering color space set to automatic from DRT or to something else like REC 709 in case of TVC workflow? - set the correct (or use automatic) interpretation for different camera footage - during the grading add Compress Gamut to avoid negative values? - render Open EXR in linear color space, using stack color space, rendering flat pass? - export BLGs - pass flat pass and BLGs to Flame and Nuke Please feel free to modify/adjust

    Baselight, ACES, BLG and Nuke/Flame

    Hello, I'm looking for some clarification, real world examples and best practice of using BLG workflow (in ACES) between BL, Flame and Nuke. Lets say if you have project shot with one camera things are pretty straight forward. Fun starts when you have timeline with Alexa mov, mxf and Arri Raw, few Red shots, little bit of Phantom Cine (that can not be loaded in Flame it seams) and few other exotic cameras and of course shots from CGI. I'm curious how other people tackle this problem. Especially from the Nuke side, since options in BLG for Flame are quite clear. What would be the best way to prep this kind of project? Thanks, Nikola

    Blade Runner, color grading

    I think (almost) every shot was capture in camera and every shot was done in DI.

    Beauty Box Video - skin retouching plugin

    Beauty Box is simple and automatic to use. This video plugin automatically identifies skin tones and creates a mask that limits the smoothing effect to just the skin areas. Just apply the filter, let it analyze the video, set a few Smoothing options, and let the plugin render to make skin retouching incredibly easy. Beauty Box Video works in Davinci Resolve, Assimilate Scratch, Nuke, Sony Vegas 12/higher, and other OpenFX hosts on Mac and Windows. Linux support coming soon.
