  1. First of all, "working under the transform" means the opposite of what you write. It means working prior to the transform / on nodes before the transform. If you want to work on a normalized image you will have to work on a node after the transform. If you want access to the log data, you will need to work on nodes before the transform. It can be more complex, but you are confused enough. I suggest you watch the first lessons of this course, it explains the concept very well.
  2. Yes of course, what is your question really?
  3. Because the transform is applied on the third node. Resolve processes the first node first, the second node next and finally the third node and it will stay in camera space all the way until it reach the transform. I guess what confuses you is that you see the transformed image on your monitor. That does mean the image is rec709 but it doesn't mean the nodes prior to the transform is rec709.
  4. I have a grade and need to adjust the mid gray to 18% prior to exporting the LUT. How can I extract the mid gray from the grade on the scope to be sure to put it on the correct IRE level?
  5. If tint is a hue + white according to color theory. Why is the tint slider something different?
  6. What is the Mitch method? He "codes" color into LUTs, he's not working with Resolve.
  7. Through the analogue outputs, but it seems like this is an issue with speed overall. Maybe because I have my Prores HQ footage on an HDD external disk connected to the USB-C output on the Mac Mini M1? Will it become speedier if I put all the footage on an external SSD disk? The frame counter in Resolve shows it uses a few milli seconds until it reaches full frame speed.
  8. I have the Black Magic Ultrastudio Mini 4K connected to a Mac Mini M1 and I do experience some latency / delay. When I click "play" on the timeline in DaVinci Resolve the image plays immidiately but it takes a millisecond or two before the audio is sent to the audio monitors. It's annoying because it's not possible to edit precisely this way. Any idea how to deal with this?
  9. To make Ravengrades Cinelook Plugin work with Mira PowerGrades you need to use v.1.5 on both. Can you confirm please?
  10. Lee demo this workflow in several of his classes here on Lowepost. You simply bring the log shot into Fusion or whatever compositing app you are using and key under a LUT. Apply the LUT, key the shot and remove the LUT when you're done and ready to render. It's nothing else you need to know really.
  11. That's not your problem, they will apply whatever transform is necessary before they do their keywork and remove the transform when sending the file back to you.
  12. Deliver the log image, original file or flat pass render.
  13. Watch Jason Bowdachs color grading training on Lowepost, it covers it quite well.
  14. Always try to get your skin tones where they should be with your overall global grade. Balancing an image with the skin tones in mind often gets the rest of the image where it should be. When doing secondary work on skin tones, try the broadest brushes first. Personally I try to reach for the hue vs. sat and hue vs. hue curves. If that does not work, I will key.
