Any questions feel free to ask. Was a bit of a rushed shoot with minimal lighting, locations weren't great either but hey!

I think this should help
Good footage doesn't make a story any better.

So here's my LUT table setup in resolve:


Once I have set all my clips to BMD, the above LUT settings are then converting to Cinelog and then to LogC. When I'm first importing my clips I'll also put a Log C to Rec709 LUT on the 3D Monitor output so I have a better reference for setting my white balance and exposure. I usually remove this after I'm done though.

Once I've rendered out at Pro Res HQ 422 and done my edit, I'll export my edit XML to film convert standalone and grade using the 'Arri Alexa LogC' camera. It'll seem quite dark and contrasty but just bring down the curves slider.

Saying all this, I had an email from Cinelog last night saying they're going to release a LUT this week which is just straight BMD -> LogC and is supposed to yield better results than this two LUT process.
