    Sony A7III - Slog3 LUT & Avid's levels scaling

    Hi all,

    I'm ingesting footage shot in SLog3 on a Sony A7III.  When I link to the files, Avid automatically sees the source color as "full range" and applies a color transformation of "Levels scaling (full range to video levels)".

    The preferred LUT we want to apply, which Avid contains, is "SonyS3C SLog3-SG3.Cine to LC-709TypeA".

    Would the correct procedure be to remove Avid's automatic "Levels scaling (full range to video levels)" color transform and only apply the LC-709TypeA?

    If I clear all transforms, and use the LC-709TypeA and then add the levels scaling as well, the effect of adding the levels scaling is the blacks become less crushed and the colors less saturated.

    I appreciate any thoughts anyone might have.  Thank you.

    Yes that sounds right. 

    Remember you can do all the clips in the bin in one go.
