Proper way to grade with luts? (the professional way!?)
« on: November 26, 2016, 02:08:33 PM »
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??
