  1. Log controls are mainly designed for log images and you can manually set how wide or narrow range you want to affect with your corrections.
  2. In this case he just means working with the log tools when going out of linear.
  3. Hi Andrea, In a printer lights workflow the LUT represents the film stock and should be at the very end of your node stack. That way every correction will run through the curve of the LUT. Experiment with using different LUTs such as the Kodaks and Fujis coming with Resolve as those mimic the original film stocks. By pushing exposure and colors through the LUT you will see that the image will be affected more in the mids and less in the blacks and whites. I suggest you watch the professional color grading course here on Lowepost for some examples of this workflow and you might also read the printer light article in the Insider section for a better understanding.
  4. The course will answer these questions, it's a large topic and you need that basic understanding to pull this off properly.
  5. Not sure if I'm allowed to share this but this is the result of the low sat green technique demonstrated in the color grading course.
  6. Agree with Amada. Looks like rather hard offset adjustments + saturation through a curve with rather flat ends so that mainly the mids are affected.
  7. Can I ask why you don't go to a post house with flame/Nuke artists of you want to pull of complicated stabilizations? Baselight is a colorist tool and it's highly unavailable for the regular man on the street. Over the top expensive and hard to learn for doing a single shot once in a while.
  8. Now that Flame included Lustre, I'm tempted to go that way. Pricey though, but you can't beat that finishing package.
  9. The motion algorithms are different on all applications so for lipsync you need to test which interpolation is the closest to what is created in FCPX. Translation data such as position, scale should transfer well, but you need to tick the scaling button when importing the XML in Resolve.
  10. Mocha is superior when it comes to screen replacements!
  11. You can right click the root folder and choose to import all the clips in both the main folders and subfolders.
  12. We have an Avid project that needs to be moved over to Premiere? What will be the fastest way to do this?
  13. Nice one! Super solid masterclass, thanks John!
  14. It will not solve the issue, just tell them it doesn't match and they will make it match.
  15. When you switch between the interpolation alternatives in Avid, you will see a slight difference as it generates some offset values in how the motion appears on the screen. You can also choose between a couple of interpolation alternatives in Resolve so my bet is that the slight differences you describe is cased by this.
