For me it sounds like you should grade your MLV footage in Lightroom.

Davinci Resolve can take a while to learn, especially the raw settings.

Yep. 10 bit was enabled for more record time in 2.8K Mode.

Looks good, good grading! It really looks like film. It would be fun to see how it looks on Vimeo, since Youtube dont work well with grain. I imagine it looks great offline.

10-bit lossless?

This is a fun thread, now when watching the general popular creators on Youtube they do the same, shooting in 1080p and uploading in 4k/UHD.

For example PotatoJet explains he do that when shooting with his A7s3 in 10-bit in this video And also says its the same for all of them like Peter McKinnon, Matti Haapoja. So what I saw in quality has to be right. And I have to say that PotatoJets 1080p video looks superb uploaded in UHD.

To bad 50mm1200s found MagicLantern forum, and glad I stayed with what I saw and didnt view his graphs that compared nothing. I should move on and go forward yes. But its cool that 2021 people still shoot in 1080p and upload to UHD

Hi Magic Lantern members,

I post here sometimes and today aswell. I've been thinking of trying to record in UHD anamorphic resolution but I like the preview and easyness off 1080p raw.

I've learned much over the years what settings in Resolve yeild high quality footage, and especially from a FullHD source. As I only like UHD on Youtube I tend to upscale to UHD.
FullHD looks very bad there. I've seen som Vimeo uploads recently and I might go back to that path.

The recording part isn't anything special since its 14-bit 1080p.
400 5.6 L lens and 5D3 and tripod is the setup. Nice feeling and composition feels most important. ISO 1600 is the highest ISO in this video.

I like colorful grades with a bit off contrast, this is not a flat look, the power off raw here lies in the colortwist, you might see tendese to banding because of big twist in color.
No LUT, instead I use the 3 pages of HSL in Resolve in the curve section. I use SuperScale setting to upscale and I imagine raw footage result in higher quality upscales.
I really like the noise reduction page in Resolve aswell as the Contrast Pop sharpening.

Hopefully you think the quality and grading is good, I've enjoyed recently to watch others UHD recordings and grades but this is only 1080p.

Hope everything is well with you during these surcumstances, good new year and XMas!

Hi wib,

What grain did you use? Cinegrain or built in Resolve grain? Or similar product?
Nice grade! Vimeo does a good job preserving the quality especially from the grain.

Really nice like the high quality.

Is it a Canon 16-35 lens and what version? looks good

Vimeo quality preserves the grain aswell, i miss Vimeo

Post-processing Workflow / Re: Vegas Pro - What workflow do people use?

You need less GPU power then you think for 1080p CDNG at 25fps for realtime playback. Ofcourse integrated doesnt work but any GPU Nvidia 780Ti and up manage.

I have realtime playback in Ultra HD 25fps CDNG and doing superscale that involves noise reduction and sharpening. But then I have my computer for other stuff then Resolve sometimes with several 250W GPUs.

Please note that these artifacts can also be caused by the monitor.  If high-resolution footage is watched on a lower-resolution screen, you get such fake aliasing even if the footage is shot in one of the 1x1 modes.  Footage should always be rescaled to the resolution of the screen on which it will be watched.  At least, this is my experience.

Yes maybe, in this case it is 1080p footage upscaled to UHD/4k watched on a UHD/4k display. So in this case its the footage its post number #20 thats the one.

Resolve does a much better work when using superscale function instead of upscaling 1080p sequences from MLVapp, the upscale should be done in the debayring process if its MLVapp do it there, if its in Resolve do it there.

I think thats the answer for bad edges. I dont't know what videofiles you export form MLVapp but if you export 10bit 1080p from MLVapp and then upscale in Resolve with standard upscale function, yes you will have aliasing problems, but this isnt about 5D3 this will happen on any camera.

for the moment im sticking with 1080-3k-4k dng exports and if I have a serious aliasing problem I’ll definitely render as prores in alexa log (with in mind that there might be some banding)

Why would you have aliasing problem with 5D3 i shoot i 1080p and never see that even when upscale. Check your settings in resolve is my advice

I'm working on an R6 10bit vs 5D2 10bit video. Probably not the same but close enough right?

Not close enough for me :) you know why :)

The quality of R6 is outstanding ofcourse

You two should do a collab together. This raw postprocessing and quality at shooting is also outstanding. I post his forumthread here:

I post this here hope thats ok. Is there anyway how you can share a Resolve project with settings and all have find any solution yet.

Just wanted to share since I enjoy editing raw video files and the power of Resolve the more you learn it. In past years I would have had problems with a shot like this directly at the sun at 400mm with bad edges and so on. Happy as always with grading and my wallet is happy that I'am not looking at another more expensive camera then my 8 years old 5D3 :)

Resolve 3840 -> 960 width

Resolve center crop 1:1

Adobe Camera RAW default

Resolve Hue vs Hue Curve

Resolve Hue vs Saturation Curve

Resolve Hue vs Luminance Curve

Will post a video soon, happy to see so much highquality grades lately on the forum and many by shots from 5D3.

Yes and at the shot with the bus at 23 sec its even more noticable. Other then that it looks really good I like the grading and I think I really like the quality of the lenses you are using, it is some old ones? Now I saw you vimeo comment. Good lens quality.

What resolution height and width are you shooting at and what do you upscale to? UHD 3840x2160 in the end?

Yes, I forgot to mention that the strong aliasing in anamorphic was in 1080, in my 5D3. But not as much in 5K on thin and diagonal lines. Also, after a few test, yes unfortunatly I had some severe banding, even with prores 4444. So I guess from now, I'll stick to 3.5K and DNG, as the color are more richer and allows more control over the highlights in davinci.

If you link a video its easier to see and follow

I'm totally convinced by grading in Arri Log C, but the reason I ask is because I was reading over on the MLV RAW on EOS M facebook group that MLVapp has much better debayering and upscaling capabilities than Resolve. So I've done a few comparisons and to my not very well trained eye, it seems like exporting ProRes 422 HQ in a log profile from MLVapp does yield slightly better results, especially if you're upscaling a lot. And of course it makes for smoother playback in Resolve than working with CinemaDNG, which is nice if you're editing in Resolve too before grading.

Curious to hear your thoughts!

I think you can have the same quality in Resolve, but when using Resolve for the first time it has so many settings that's not set right so you have to do that first, I think that's wheres the problem lays. Its much fiddling before you can export your first movie. But when you have learned Resolve and setting it up you are done and can start us it. But yeah MLVapp is set up right from the start so its much faster!

Yeah, you would get so much more comments if the forum was as active as few years ago.
I really like your grading especially then the cars is driving out from the ferry for example, able to show how the "curves" or what it is looks like?
Maybe you could raise the white level from 16200 to 16383 in MLVapp before export DNGs for improved highlights rolloff in Resolve from highest and maybe avoid som pink tones idk. When using Resolve I have seen it makes a difference espasially when using older builds with 15000 white level.

What else to say... I really like the grade, feeling inspired to film something similar with great tones from sky and water, but in 1080p since I'am not that advanced :)

What bit depth and framerate is this shot at by the way?

Had to start up my desktop pc to watch this on 4k screen. How beautiful this 4k detailing is, it feels like a good looking grain thats generate an image that looks stunning with high detail without close to looking to sharp. Good looking compositions, and that grade dealing with highlight rolloff and very good looking dynamic range that has a perfect contrast and not close to looking flat, the grade is very well excecuted. This is the best ML footage I ever seen. Your workflow from start to finish has everything, from recording settings in camera and post workflow. Thank you for making this short film it was a pure joy to watch!

Cool to see that MLV app CDNG export to Resolve where everything else is done. Thanks for making!

Sorry for that, I just want to give some advice but I think it came out harder in text. But yes my post before that is not necessary against reddercity. But I think it was on topic to talk about 1080p.

Anyways i think you will enjoy R6 yourboylloyd, and i also think you will start using UHD because the filesize is still very small only a quarter of ML RAW 1080p 25fps is. And it looks really good that 10bit.

And who knows you might be the first who do serious overheat tests, because i havent seen that on the internet yet. Good luck.

What are you talking about? Entire productions (Iron Man, HOUSE TV Show, and a lot more)
Besides Anti-aliasing, yes but antialiasing is the only thing I'am suggesting is different and makes a big difference, no edges on object going crazy at anytime how ever you shoot. And on this forum I've havent seen a 5D2 RAW clip that doesnt show those edges when using fullframe. For me atleast I see a big difference in image quality about anti-aliasing between the two.

5D2 owners seams to dislike the 5D3, thats very common on this forum. I dont dislike 5D2 but image quality in fullframe is worse.
The 5D3 came to the thread because topic starter said he likes 1080p. But the big disadvantage between 5D3 is lack of autofocus and IBIS.

Do you read what others write Reddercity?

I have a 5D2 already. There isn't much point in getting a 5D3 when the only thing the 5D3 can do better is anti-aliasing.

Only thing, thats a major thing in image quality, I havent seen one video of 5D2 using fullframe that looks good. I had the 5D2 7 years ago and bought the 5D3, the only thing that is similar is the file size the image quality cant be further apart.

Profiles doesn't effect raw files when you export as DNGs from any app. DNG's is still raw data. Your hole color workflow is inside aftereffects and adobe camera raw inside there.

But about the overheating I haven't seen one proper test on it yet. Hopefully EOSHD will make one when he gets the camera.

This is interesting...

I also realized that I don't really care for 4K as much as a lot of other people do. I wonder how 1080p 24fps does on the R6

If you don't care much about 4k then I would say a 5D3 is a very good choice, if you care more about color and think 1080p is good. IBIS and aucofocus is maybe what you are after but for 1080p 5D3 has a stunning color and image quality. And you will save a lot! of dollars
