  1. On macOS if you install the plugin, the LUTs can be found in: /Library/Application Support/CrumplePop/Koji Advance/Cube
  2. sRGB has the 2.4 gamma part in the middle. Rec.709 is 1/0.45. In any case this is just the encoding/transfer function. https://www.image-engineering.de/library/technotes/714-color-spaces-rec-709-vs-srgb Which is different than the decoding/display gamma. (Gamma 2.4). The combination results in an end-to-end system gamma that isn't 1.0 but rather around 1.2 to compensate for viewing environment. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rec._709#Transfer_characteristics https://www.chromapure.com/colorscience-gamma-new.asp
  3. Yea, you still linked to the wrong product. For video you should be linking people to the DFT suite which includes a light plugin, but for video. Linking to the Light plugin product page takes them to a product that only works with still applications
  4. That's for DFT. http://www.digitalfilmtools.com/dft/ You posted a link for Light. http://www.digitalfilmtools.com/light/ Light doesn't work for video/film applications. These filters do however:

  6. Meh. The only validation I need is knowing that the people paying me like my work. DPs, Editors, Directors, Cinematographers, etc all know what credit to look for and where to look. I don't think it's that big of a deal. The whole process is collaborative and I'd rather focus on gaining respect amongst my peers and industry colleagues, rather than where my name lists in the credits
  7. When is Resolve Stills coming out? Haha I want to stop using Lightroom and Capture One for my still work all together Resolve is so powerful and I feel like even with 90% of the tools taken out and some better RAW support/adjustments and modified asset management and UI, a version could be sold as Resolve Stills and it would be more successful than any of the current tools in photography, except Photoshop.
  8. Quick video of Printing Density ICC method I was experimenting with. Using the Resolve Rec.709 Kodak 2383 D65 LUT and Adobe's Kodak 5205 Printing Density ICC. http://cloud.cameronrad.com/sVQ6
  9. I agree about color correcting by hand, I always tend to get the best results when I just do it manually. I'm a color geek though so I just like to experiment with these types of transforms to try and see what happens. The ICC profile experiment was based off this presentation I saw online: http://www.color.org/ICC_Chiba_07-06-19_PM_DMP_Float.pdf No clue if it's even accurate or this technique is even relevant anymore, I haven't heard any updates and I believe Lars Borg from Adobe is currently working on ACES. Interesting technique to try though. With the Colorchecker chart, I use the SG but my primary use case is a bit different. I deal with still camera RAWs which benefit from having the extra patches and extended gamut of the SG vs. the standard or the CC Video. The biggest issue I have with the SG is lighting it evenly due to the gloss
  10. I'm not sure how accurate it is to be honest. I wish I had more first hand experience with this stuff to know for sure. I tried piecing together what I understand from various sites, this one included. Mitch Bogdanowicz's posts help a lot. I picked up some stuff from Adobe's old white papers and patents also https://patents.google.com/patent/US9443327
  11. I've tried using Adobe's Printing Density ICC profiles to emulate printing density data and got this as the result. https://helpx.adobe.com/after-effects/using/color-management.html I used the Kodak 5218 profile. ______ Adobe Camera RAW Default Color Rendering Adobe Camera RAW (Custom Cineon Log DCP Camera Profile) After conversion to Kodak 5218 Printing Density ICC Profile + Kodak 2383 LUT. (Exposure bumped slightly to match ACR Default)
  12. Thanks man! I need to update it with some new work some time. Haven't updated it in a couple years. With VSCO and filters I think toning them back and using them in conjunction with Photoshop isn't bad, especially if they look good and get the job done. The issue i have is when people just paste them on and it looks "filtered". A lot of people don't modify the preset and eventually they all look the same. Also you might dig this free opacity plugin for Lightroom https://www.capturemonkey.com/thefader/
