Raw Video / AutoETTR option not available
« on: September 22, 2013, 05:50:33 AM »
Im planning to shoot a time lapse tomorrow , and I want to achieve the deflicker timelapse. but I dont see the autoETTR in the Expo menu. ALl isee is ML Auto ISO. WHat am i missing. I can shoot raw video just fine using my camera(5d mark III) DO i need a deflicker module? where can i get it.

I want to grade 5d mark III raw footage in Davinci resolve following this method @ However I am wondering if color space and gamma setting for this ML footage can be set to BMD film. The tutorial uses log controls in Resolve , therefore its necessary to have log footage. Therefore I was wondering if thats what the magic lantern hack provides out of the 5d mark III. Thanks in advance.

Raw Video Postprocessing / What LUT are You using?
« on: August 17, 2013, 09:32:02 PM »
Just wanted to open a discussion on what LUT are people using to  as a starting point for  color grading?

Please include some screen shots of images or/and wave monitor if possible.

Working in Windows Environment.

1ST Workflow (#1)  5d raw ->DNG->Premiere(using Ginger Wrapper)->export xml to Resolve(link to DNG footage)-> Grade in Resolve->output to final Media.

THE 1ST WORKFLOW OFFERS ME ACCESSES TO COLOR TEMP,TINT & EXPOSURE ,IF I CHOOSE TO INTERPRET 5D RAW AS BMD FILM. This workflow also has a PLUS that Resolve offers color grading work-space that is much faster than after effects or premiere(looks,Colorista II,etc)

2nd Workflow (#2) 5D raw -> DNG->Cineform Raw->Premier->->export xml to Resolve(link to Cineform Raw footage)-> Grade in Resolve->output to final Media.

THE 2ND WORKFLOW DOES NOT OFFER META DATA ACCESS IN RESOLVE,UNLIKE LIKE THE 1ST METHOD. BUT IT DOES OFFER IN THE STAND ALONE GO-PRO UTILITY APP.  Someone did post that there is a hack or workaround for accessing cineform raw metadata in Resolve but stated it changes the Resolve default Demosiacing(not sure what that means or if it effects the footage)if anyone know please explain. However  cineform Compression saves space so there is clear PLUS to the workflow as well.

3rd Workflow(#3)5D raw -> DNG->Adobe Camera RAW->After effects->Premiere(edit&grade)-> output to final media

THE 3RD WORKFLOW OFFERS THE USE OF ACR WHICH MANY STATE OFFERS BETTER RAW VIDEO COLOR CORRECTION (HIGHLIGHT RECOVERY,COLOR CAST REMOVAL ETC.), THAN CINEFORM UTILITY AND DAVINCI RESOLVE (ANY ONE AGREE OR DISAGREE). however color grading in premiere or after effects seems tedious, (nodal structure of resolve seems easier) and colorista II and looks seem relatively slow in comparison to resolve.

Sorry ended of asking lot of questions within each workflow, but Id be happy with just your input to the best workflow and maybe why.
Thanks in advance for taking the time to reply.
