  • Re: LUT just makes my footage look awful - advice pls!

    As an accredited TV cameraman I just dont get why you would supply weird custom stuff for bread and butter TV! You'd become known as the cameraman that supplies difficult material that costs money to grade and cant be done in Avid easily! I doubt this cameraperson would have tweaked deep in-camera settings as they shot Slog2 at night...under...

    How do you verify what LUT you need then Jef - I even asked the cameraman and he said Slog2, as written on the drive... The bin gamma metadata said "user defined curve 9" which implies that he has tweaked the Slog? Or shouldnt I expect that metadata through and to state Slog2? I know i get my HyperGamma metadata through no problem in the bins

  • Re: Slog3-Cine3 to LC709 with Symphony.

    Thast pretty clear Pat. Thanks. I tried my first proper Slog edit with a source based Slog2 to 709 LUT but this did terrible things to the images which threw me as surely it should just be the equal but opposite of Slog and just bring it back into normal 709 territory? What it was doing was bonkers though. Whats this function even for then? So I removed

    Thanks Jef. I too have concluded that grading with no source LUT is beyond better - I had to strip it all off and start again - have far better results now. Symphony's auto balance tools for contrast and then colour get you in teh ballpark and then I fix gamma and white balance and then black balance. What a PITA for bread and butter stuff! ;) I

  • LUT just makes my footage look awful - advice pls!

    Grading something someone else shot. Personally I would NEVER have shot Slog 2 at night/low light - Hyper Gamma 7 or REC 709 is far more appropriate than this bright highlight handling gamma type... Looks like this: So it gets a Slog2 to 709 LUT in source bin which makes it as noisy as VHS and does crazy things to the whites (look at the purple whites

  • What causes the screens to black out during a render?

    I get this now and again when doing intensive tasks like an UHD fluid motion render on a clip with a LUT on it? No ill effects and only lasts a second or two but wonder what causes it? I have a middling K2000 Quadro GFX card, but always thought that yiou didnt really need a 3D CAD style super expensive GFX card with 2D video Avid? Cheers

  • Re: Xeon or i7 / i9?

    Now that is getting your value for money!!! What sort of peak temps are you getting? I run a hex core i7 5820 at 4Ghz very stable for a couple of years now with a simple water cooler. Peaks about 75C which is too hot to touch but acceptable I believe!

    Go PAL mate - change countries - may be easier? Computers love even numbers rather than odd multiples ;) Sorry I jest :) If you want files to test and dismiss let me know - maybe even test 25P on your generated files? I know nothing about Drop Frame / NDF but is that a setting?

  • Re: XAVC-S Timecode - AMA link

    Yeah Im 25P - everything must multiply with 25 for an easy jerk free life :). Scocklin was 23.976 I think. Happy to swap files and do any tests if it helps you guys.
