Incredible quality!I try to do the same with my footages.....with no success.
There is no way for you tu have more explanations from the expert colorist about what he done with your footages?
You give him a Visionlog version??
I can try to explain as best what I did to prep everything for the colorist. But the colorist was a professional and his work far exceed my color correction ability to help make our video really look stunning.
To start, I converted everything with RawMagic Lite to DNG files. Then I imported those DNG files to Davinci Resolve to create the ProRes 4444 video files. I wanted to make the coloring process as easy as possible so I figured ProRes 4444 (12 bit) files would be more than sufficient. Once in Davinci, I only stretched the Raw files from 1920x506 to 1920x818 (since I shot it all at 48fps), and flattened everything to a BlackMagic super flat profile setting.
I did all my editing in Premiere Pro and when I was done I exported one final ProRes 4444 file for color correction. Normally that's not how it would be done, but for timing's sake we wanted to make it as simple as possible. I have had problems before linking and relinking files from Premiere to Davinci, so this was the easiest/safest bet.
The colorist then brought the master file into his Davinci studio and he used many layers and nodes to effect individual colors in the video and make certain colors pop, and certain colors drop. He added sharpening, contrast, slight grain and many other minor adjustments to each shot to help bring the whole piece more cohesively together.
I wish I could give you more in depth explanation but I'm really not that versed in Davinci myself. That's why we paid for the professional service. But I hope this helps a little bit.
