  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Yeah, I had that feeling also. We will try with OCIO color management tomorrow. Hope that will change something.
  6. 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 ha
  7. 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
  8. 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

  11. I think (almost) every shot was capture in camera and every shot was done in DI.
  12. Thank you Amada, just trying to make it look analog
