Raw Video Postprocessing / Proper RAW color workflow in Davinci Resolve???
« on: December 07, 2016, 12:15:38 AM »


Hi, there I recently bought a new computer so now I´m finally able to start using Davinci Resolve.

I have watched a ton off tutorials online so I have a okay knowledge off how to use the program.

One thing that´s not mentioned online that much is how to proper work with color (colorspaces, LUTs/Emulations etc)

So now I would appreciate some advice about just that.

I shoot Raw with Magic Lantern so the files in Resolve are CinemaDNGs 1080p. My ML Raw footage comes out with very little dinamic range but maybe that´s how ML Raw is acting.

Now I want to find the proper/professional color workflow within Resolve.

I have wound that the most common way to adjust color:

1.     Correct/balance

2.     Apply some sort of filmlook

3.     Final adjustments

In my case in the look stage I going to add something like the M31 Lut or a Film emulation of any kind.

The following question come up in my heat when trying to figure out a solution.

I have read a bit about Aces but I don´t see any advantages with that because I just have one type of files!

What colorspace to use in the camera raw tab? BMD or 709?

What node structure is the best? correction before or after look/lut? when to use scopes? when to correct skintones?

In words I want to know what the proper color workflow is? regarding Raw, Luts etc! Plz give as much information as possible! Every step from MLV Raw to impresivly graded footge!

Best regards //Olle form Sweden

Hi, I recently bought a new computer and now I'm able to start learning Davinci Resolve!
I have some questions about the correct and proper way to grade with luts.

1. I have found this tutorial from IWLTBAP Luts : https://vimeo.com/156630114 Is this the proper way to grade with luts on rec.709 even if I have raw footage? So if I have understood this right the proper way to grade with luts is following:
color correct ( WB, exposure with scopes etc.)
then apply the LUT for rec.709 and make some final adjustments.

2. In the camera raw tab it's possible to change color space to bmd-film or you can convert the footage to Cinelog if you have bought that. Now I wonder what the proper way to use LUTs on LOG footage is? And which way that is correct when grading raw, keeping the colorspace rec709 or LOG like Cinelog??

Youtube blocked the audio so please watch it here instead!: http://www.freeride.se/video/56545/

This is a video recap from the 10th longboard contest Ravenhill and also unfortunately the last Ravenhill. I went for watching longboard for the first time and of course I bring my new Canon 7D with me to try out its raw video capabilities. Ravenhill was hold 27-28 may at Ramberget (Gothenburg - sweden). The weather was great and the surrounding nature was totally awesome.

If you have any feedback please let me know, especially about color grading!

I also have a question to you guys. My computer has really bad specs and I'm wondering if the video can be choppy/laggy when exporting or maybe it is me messing around with the shutter speed!?

Really slushy skiing from the place where I live and a little ski resort called Ulricehamn. When the snow finally came, me and my buddy took with us some lights and our homemade rails and tried to ski as creative as possible. Around two months later we were at a little ski resort called Ulricehamn. The weather was totally sunny with 100% slush in the slope but it was a super fun day!

Raw Video Postprocessing / Best MLV converter for OSX?
« on: May 09, 2016, 10:26:13 PM »
Hi, as the title mention I wonder a little bit about the best method to convert MLV files to highest possible quality cdng or dng? Whats the differance between cinema-dngs and normal dngs and which one gives best quality? I know there is a lots of converting program and I really like RawMagic but I know the this software isn't supported of ML, so I'm searching for a new converter. I want a simple software that gives highest possible Cdns/dngs for further import to after effects? I post my workflow down here if you want to see!?:

Workflow:
MLV → convert to dng/cdng → After Effects (converted the footage to Log with Cinelog-C ) → export to (Apple ProRes 442 HQ) → Import to Premiere Pro (edit and grading)→ export to (Apple ProRes 442 HQ) → upload!

It would also be nice to have some tips how I can speed up the workflow and If there in anyway is possible to import multiple dng files to After Effects!?

regards Olle!

General Help Q&A / Buy a 7d? slow motion?
« on: March 29, 2016, 05:34:24 PM »
Hi, I don’t know if placed the thread right but anyway I wonder a little bit about what you guys think about shooting raw with the 7D and especially the slow motion capabilities.
Now I have a canon 600d/t3i and I plan to buy a second hand canon 7d just to get more reading/writing speed. 
Overall what experience do you guys have of shooting raw with the Canon 7D? any specific things?
I have been looking around on these two links for information about the 7ds capabilities ( http://rbrune.github.io/mlraw/  and https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/16cgnRivbUv7nA9PUlCLmLdir3gXdIN3pqzCNAAybepc/edit#gid=5 ). My conclusion is that the maximum writing speed is around 80 mbps and especially if you use this Sandisk cf card that guaranty at least 65 mbps and maximum 160 mbps, I think it is the fastest CF card on the market! (https://www.sandisk.com/home/memory-cards/compact-flash/extremepro-compactflash ). According to these two site: ( http://rbrune.github.io/mlraw/ and https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/16cgnRivbUv7nA9PUlCLmLdir3gXdIN3pqzCNAAybepc/edit#gid=5  With aspect ratio 2,35.1 it will be possible to record 1728x442 at 60fps for a pretty long time. Am I right? How long?
I also would be really glad if someone could do a test for me? I really should appreciated it. I would be really glad if someone could record a MLVfile in highest possible resolution (1728x442) with aspect ratio 2.35:1 at 60 fps (Change NSTC to PAL in the Canon menu to record 60fps insted of 50fps) and send me a download link to that file.
One more thing; I wonder how good the 7d is in aliasing compared to the 600d/t3i?

Best regards Olle

Hi, here is my two frist videos with MLRaw. First it's a video from the past summer when I was on a trip to the German island Rügen. This is my first “kind of landscape video” and it was the first time I did walking shoots with the Gildecam HD-2000 and also my first time using Magic Lantern RAW. It took me a lot of time to figure out my Raw workflow but now I'm more comfortable with the Raw format.
 
Camera settings:
Magic Lantern RAW
1600x408, 2:35.1, 24fps

Workflow:
RAW → raw2cdng → cdng → After Effects (converted the footage to Log with Cinelog-C and also added a Log to Rec709 lut) → export to (Apple ProRes 442 HQ) → Import to Premiere Pro → export to (Apple ProRes 442 HQ) → Youtube


The second video is just a quick test about the “Magic Lantern RAW” slow motion capabilities of my Canon 600d/ T3i. I'm pretty impressed of the image quality, just a little of noise and aliasing.

Camera settings:
Magic Lantern RAW
1280x326, 2:35.1, 60fps

Workflow:
ML RAW → raw2cdng → cdng → After Effects (converted the footage to Log with Cinelog-C) → export to (Apple ProRes 442 HQ) → Import to Premiere Pro (Log to Rec709) → export to (Apple ProRes 442 HQ) → Youtube


On my Instagram I have a few shorter videos shoot with MLRaw that i'm actually is more satisfied with  https://www.instagram.com/olle_98/

Pleas give me some advice on how I could imporve my video!? I Haven't spent so much time on color grading but I'm really appreciate tips about color grading!

Best regards Olle

Raw Video / 600d serious raw problem! plz help!
« on: July 25, 2015, 12:32:22 AM »
Hi, first I would say that I really enjoy your work with the Magic Lantern and I am a big supporter of ML. I have a Canon 600d and I have had magic lantern on the camera in a month now and it works perfect. But I have some serious problems with raw record! I can actually record raw at 1728 resolution in 10 seconds but when I import the files to my computer I get really disappointed because on my raw files there is very much of  “aliasing artifacts from horizontal lines of pixels being skipped” I have talked with a ML user and he said just that. I have tried all things to get it working, I have tried to shoot in 720p and 1080p mode, different resolutions, both PAL and NTSC, MLRawviewer, Rawmagic and MLVFS and nothing will fix my issue. I really really want to get raw record to work because it opens much more doors otherwise the 600ds video capabilities is not that good! I have seen a lot of good raw videos with the 600d but I don't understand why just my 600d not will work! So can you guys in any way help me with my problem? I would be so thankful!

Down here I send you a picture so you easy can see what I mean!
