Any settings recommendations for grading with Speedgrade?
« on: March 06, 2014, 07:17:08 PM »
The following has before and after of 5DMk3 raw.
Used older version of ML that outputs raw and then converted with new raw2dng that support prores4444.
When filming I made effort to not overexpose, but prores44444 initially appeared overexposed - guess that is just how raw2dng converts.
Is it intended to output linear? I was expecting log - maybe we could have an option for that?
Just imported prores4444 into Speedgrade and adjusted exposure, saturation, black levels quickly to eliminate hot spots on white costumes.
So there was at least 10bits of information captured!
Used linear and 5DMk3 profile settings in speedgrade.
Curious to know if others have speedgrade settings recommendations or custom profiles.
Will also try with davinci.

Just got Speedgrade there myself. I intend to use Lightroom, using the visioncolour LOG, first off, export to TIFF's then import and grade in Speedgrade - then export to edit in Vegas. SOunds hectic but it seems the easiest way to use the Osiris M31 Lut.

We'll see.
Some Canon stuff and some other stuff too. You can't polish a turd but shit does wipe off.
