Title: DNG comes into DaVinci looking already color graded. So I used Cinelog-C
Post by: aworkofmarc on May 30, 2017, 03:50:24 AM
I took a sample video / MLV with my 5D3 using Cine (Neutral) picture style. I used MLV Mystic to convert it to DNG. I bring the frames straight into DaVinci and it does NOT have that flat neutral base starting point.

So thinking I needed a plug in or something to get it there, so I can begin to learn color grading I bought the Cinelog-C for DaVinci. Which as you can see by the second picture it gets me that flat starting point. I think I just wasted my money cause it SHOULD come that way from the ML/5D3 --right?

But why did my image not just come that way straight from the MLV?

As straight from DNG into DaVinci

With Cinelog-C

Laughing is totally understandable.., I am so green at this.

Ah.. so it technically hasn't been color graded it's just the way it comes from the camera as a starting point. It was confusing because when taking CR2 images they come in quite flat. Hence my confusion.

So I just threw $80. for Cinelog-C at a problem that didn't need solving. But it got me Cinelog-C so for that I'm grateful!
