  1. Red or Alexa?

    in DR you have to set the raw debayer to RedWideGammut as color science and LogG10 as gamma curve, then use one of the red lut downloadable from here: https://www.red.com/downloads/58de98eff77f300ebe00053f
  2. Red or Alexa?

    Between the two i prefere Alexa, i like better the color rendition and the general feeling, plus is much more forgiving (to my eyes) to the mistakes made in set. Said that since i'm working with the new ipp2 red pipeline i have to say things are much better
  3. Davinci Resolve Wishlist

    Now that i think about it. Since the intruduction of the 3d tracker i feel the need of a skew control on the shapes. It's hard to keyframe and fix under the perspective distortion sometimes
  4. Keyframe editor reverse

    yes, it happen when the clip had been set to play backwards as in "reverse speed effect" I hate it as it's really confusing When it really becomes a pain I sometimes duplicate the clip in the timeline, remove the speed effect and using the remote clip grading I correct the keyframe to my taste

    I wanted to check out this LUT, i know it's for baselight and I assume that .cub is the baselight 3d lut extension. I have tried with lattice to see if was possibile to open it and export it to a .cube file but I had no luck. Does anyone know if and how it's possible to convert it to use it in davinci? cheers, Orash
  6. Davinci Resolve Wishlist

    A qualifier that actually works!
  7. Focus methods

    Similar to the aproach described by @Frank Wylie i sharpen the luma Channel in a lab space node where i disable chanell 2 and 3
  8. Film emulation and actual film

    @Jussi Rovanperä no worries for the endorsment, its a good found and It will be a good experiment however it'll go!
  9. Film emulation and actual film

    Hi Louis! There's been a little misunderstanding, i wish was as you'r saying No, unfortunatelly i don't have a film to grade and in the market where i work i don't think i will ever have the chance. So i wanted to do it myself shoting motion pic film in a still camera and see if i can replicate the workflow. I will buy the vision3 from where @Jussi Rovanperä suggested, probably the hard part would come with the proccessing and scanning.
  10. Hi all, I have a question that is coming from a DOP friend of mine that with my limited expirience i can't answer. A film emulation lut (a proper one) does realistically emulate how the film behave. He wants to shoot film, but before doing that he wants to study on his film stage how different film react to contrast and color, to achive his aesthetic. Also, but that's for me. I never had the chance to grade film and i my market i don't think It will happend, so i was thinking, do you think its possibile to buy stock of films and a winding machine and use motion film in a still camera? Are there problema fitting the film because of the perforation? Once shot how do i procces It to get a proper workflow? Thanks! Orash
  11. Solid red color

    If you want a pure solid Red you could Key the thing you want, split the channels and trow away G and B. Then add It back on a layer either normal blend if you are ok with luma, or change the blend mode to color.
  12. Lum vs Sat

    Not even on dvr 14? I thought It had been fixed but i haven't tried yet. Man, that sucks...

  14. Playback quality in QT

    ok cool! I have taken the habit to send vimeo links, at least that something i can control. still the problem is that also the browser color manage, so it change is seen in chrome or safari for example. oh well, I don't think all this will be change anytime soon, so i guess we'll have to find a way to work around it.
  15. Playback quality in QT

    something I've never understood of this behaviour: If one grade on legal level project, with a legal level display and output a prores 422HQ or an h264 which is legal, why QT stills lift blacks? (sometimes at least) does it get confused and operate some sort of double transform? Is there a way to get around this problem? When you send files over to client remotely, do you suggest which player to use? and if that so, which one?
