This gives you incredibly and i mean INCREDIBLY noisey video...
I still think that my method of using visionlog and setting the contrast to -50 is much better.

That applies only when you are not using Cinelog for true Rec.709 or LogC conversion of ML RAW.

FilmConvert's film curve is pretty aggressive and as @MGerard pointed out, even genuine Arri Alexa footage doesn't fair well without some tweaks. I would recommend setting the film curve to 70-80% and adjust shadows, mids and highlights to taste. FilmConvert can't be just added without some adjustments. We have Cinelog-C and Cinelog-C Film Matrix LUTS coming next week that match Alexa Log-C gamma and color quite well and we will include what we feel are optimum settings for FilmConvert. When you get it right it really sings! :)
