  1. Ya the same problem here. And can't access any of my old purchases.😬
  2. Thanks Mark for some great over the shoulder insights.

  4. I have a CG2420 & had a similar problem with the internal calibration. I came across a video on Portrait Display's YouTube page After trying this method everything looks right & the pluge on my colour bars is correct. Although you will need CalMan Studio to do this. Not sure it LightSpace can do a similar job.
  5. Not just buttons & knobs... you can get that in the manual. This is another peek over the shoulder at a colourist at work, with some great tips too. I'd really love to see more of these. Thanks John & Lowepost for a great insight.
  6. Hi Andree, in my experience a lot of the bigger facilities running Baselight try to keep their colourist colouring, which is what I think Derek is focusing on in this tutorial. The fixing & finishing would probably be passed on to the GFX department. If you want the in and outs of object removal, look at the Paint Fixing in Resolve Fusion course by Lee Lanier. I'm a freelance editor/colourist and unlike big facilities I have to do as much as I can in Resolve, editing, colouring & fixing shots. So I've found all the Fusion ccources very helpful, worth a look at.
  7. I've done various grading classes over the past few years & the one thing that always gets me is how rarely I see a colourist actually colouring. Thank you Derek for this real look over the shoulder of a pro at work. I'd love to see more of these breakdowns, they are invaluable.
  8. Color Space Transform will do a more accurate transform form one color space to another without any clipping that you might get with a LUT. It also has Tone & Gamut mapping options & uses the math as Resolve RCM. I use Color Space Transform when I have multiple camera formats to match. Say I have a project which used Sony, Arri & Canon cameras. I use Color Space Transform to convert to one common color space. For example convert Sony S-Gamut, S-Log2 to Arri Alexa, LogC and then Canon Cinema Gamut, Canon Log to Arri Alexa, LogC or whatever way you want to convert your cameras. You can them apply grades that you did on one camera to another. LUTS are more useful if you want to apply a look to your footage & it is quite east to break a LUT by grading in the wrong part of the color chain.
  9. Another great course Lee. Picked up some really useful tips & tricks. Totally recommended.
  10. Cine Grain is a scan from original film 8mm through to 35mm & is used as an overlay, so not a lot of tweaking. Film Grain OFX plugin generates new grain so every frame should be different. Plus you change all aspects & behaviour of the grain even going into the tonal ranges, shadows, midtones & highlights & individually adjusting them. FilmConvert plugin also has a very good grain generator similar to Resolve. As for aesthetics, I personally think the grain should be more of a feel rather than visually noticeable giving a bit of randomness to the perfect digital frame. If you have a less powerful machine Cine Grain might be the one to use as any OFX plugin will be a bit more of a drain on your computer. Hope that helps. Phil
