gh5 vlog to rec 709 lut test
on Sep 7, 2017 at 1:26:09 pm

hi everyone!

I was doing a gh5 vlog to rec709 test lut I made from photoshop ACR camera mode and iwltap lut creator.
It keeps skins tones on skin tone line while making a unique carribean look at the same time. it is designed for vlog that is exposed for highlights.
it also normalizes primaries better than saturation by offsetting camera sensor data. anyone want to test and provide feedback?
it really pops off my screen.

I'll give it a go. Getting absolute crap out of my V Log video so far. It's not the camera, it's me. I suck. So if I get good results you can consider your LUT a resounding success.

Well, I tried it on 3 different clips and it turns everything orange. Even if I turn the temp all the way to max blue the skin tones are still orangey. Man, I really do suck at this and getting worse.

hey Duke,

what's up. Does your stuff look ok using the official gh5 luts? how about manually grading from vlog, any luck there?
my stuff is for really, really flat vlog settings, no grading before applying either.

Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. Manually grading, which I try to do a lot now since 422 10 bit doesn't play smoothly once I add junk like FilmConvert, is ok but I still don't get what I see other people getting. Before I got the GH5 I played with those Neumann clips. All I had to do was bring the blacks down to 0 and the whites between 90 and 100 and I got spectacular results. When I do it to my own clips it looks like crap. Crushed blacks and I can't go any higher than 80 or my whites clip.

I'll put up a video later tonight that will be half graded (on top) and half ungraded v log (on the bottom) so you can see for yourself. I might be too hard on myself but I doubt it. I'll post it here when it's up.

Here's the clip. It's short. First time around is ungraded V Log, second clip is with the official V Log LUT added, third time around is with your LUT. Notice the heavy tilt towards orange. Both LUT's are untweaked, just slapped on.

yea, i see what you mean. It looks too saturated for your particular footage. you can change the lut's saturation, black, white, highlight shadow inside lumetri. what was your iso? crazy that it looks so freakin good on 22 other clips, but on yours it looks like a vlogger's grade, haha! anyways, thanks for your time!

thanks for your input. I went over your footage again and realized that it was so delicate, I had to start from scratch. I ended up actually reverse engineering the panasonic lut!

I have attached the xmp files made in ACR in photoshop as well as the 64 cube luts. Now you can edit panasonic's offical lut(kinda) I fixed its incorrect skin tone(magenta?) and highlight rolloff(crushed)

i deconflicted your camera's sensor with a new carrabean designed for it. you can add the saturation amount in lumetri

Well, as I always say, never argue with a man who can deconflict your camera's sensor 😉

I'll give it a shot and report back. I will apply it to that previous clip and some outdoor clips I shot earlier that day.

EDIT: Wait I just noticed all those files in the zip. Am I supposed to try all three cube files to see which works best or add all 3 through adjustment layers?

i put in all 3. the technical vlog to rec 709 to replace the offical panasonic lut(which has magenta problems), the carribean standard(designed for your sensor) and my old one(ex). I also attached their photoshop adobe camera raw .xmp files so you can edit them.

To get right to the point, your GH5 Neutral should be the new LUT that comes with V Log. It gives me exactly the same result only with better black levels. And excellent skin tones! I still don't like the carribbean look. I guess after 17 years in Florida I hate all things carribbean. But seriously it just doesn't appeal to me.

Ungraded

V Log LUT

GH5 Neutral

NOTE* The far wall which looks blue actually is that color.

awesome! thanks for all your input. I didn't realize how screwed up panasonic's "official" lut was until I started this venture. makes me wonder if they had an intern make it in windows movie maker, haha!

photoshop is so much better for grading than lumetri, its almost sad, buts that's another story.

Yeah, I actually used to grade in Photoshop, I'd take a RAW still whenever I shot some footage and graded it in Photoshop and saved as a TGA image, but my old PC, as you may remember, was slow as hell so I stopped. Gotta try again although your LUT seems to do 90% of the work for me. One request if possible, if you'll notice, your LUT has the slightest hint of green in it compared to the official LUT, which is dead on color wise. If you can tweak that, that would be great.

this is an excellent example of how lut's won't work 100% of the time. at best, they will get 95% the way there, but due to lighting changes, temperature changes, reflections, they aren't perfect.

to demonstrate, I went back in, and made the lut work for indoors. I tweaked the highlights so that they rolloff differently and still maintain contrast and lowered green response. obviously, this lut wouldn't work outdoors as well on grass.

the green is reflecting into the glasses, so you either have to remove green/ cyan hue/saturation(which changes the wall) or go in with a garbage matte in post.

I have attached the lut and .xmp so you can edit

Excellent! Do you have any LUTs for footage shot in caves? 😉 J/K
I'll give this a shot on that same footage. Thanks again, Chris. I'm sure you'd appreciate it if more than one person, me at that, was giving you feedback. I'm on the GH5 reddit group. I'll put up a post there leading them to this thread. Hopefully more people will download and test it for you.

Yes, a night time LUT is what I was thinking but of course I always have to turn it into a joke so I said cave. btw I see that 2 others have downloaded this new LUT of yours, and I didn't even post in reddit yet. Doing that now.

EDIT: This new LUT totally nails skin tones on indoor shoots! One other suggestion. I think you should raise black levels just the tiniest bit. Lighter than what you have now but still darker than the official Panasonic LUT. That would be on GH5 Neutral and GH5 Indoor Neutral.

getting the curve shape is the most important. i raised the blacks 2%. anymore than that and the image will look like log, lol.

did you know that you can use the arrow keys in photoshop's raw interface on the curve keyframes?
you can move one pixel at a time and the curve barely moves . pretty neat.

do you have any nighttime or low light footage? anything with colorcasts from lamposts or sulfer lights? anything that
may be grainy? both low contrast and high contrast dim light.

Thanks, Chris. I didn't mean to turn you into my own personal LUTmaster 😉

I'm sure I've got a ton of grainy, but I'll have to search. Do you want me to send it to you or use your LUT on it? I'll use the LUT and, if you want some sample footage, I'll send a short clip. btw, there are no lamp posts where I live!

full sized png is sufficient for vlog nighttime work. if you record 10 bit video, I could compare with a png with trillions of colors instead of only millions of colors. not completely necessary because photoshop defaults 16 to image generator, but it would be interesting to see how it affects grading in low light 8 bit vs 10 bit.

I would further like to review the new all-i codec 400mpbs and anamorphic quality as well. do you have an anamorphic cine lens?

No, I wish, but I only have regular lenses. I do shoot 10 bit, however. The 400mbps ALL-I update doesn't come out until the end of September. I'll look for a low light still and get it to you shortly. Oh, btw, the latest raised blacks LUT is perfect! Both indoor and out door.

EDIT: Here's the still. Oddly enough when I went to apply the latest indoor LUT, Premiere Pro crashed, but I have a feeling it was just time, not caused by the LUT. I'll continue testing.

here's the low light test. I tweaked the highlights so details can path through and changed blue/green hue in shadows. skin looks same. after this, you would need to run neatvideo to remove grain. but it would be a good intermediate for denoising.

Thanks, Chris, but aren't we at the point now where your LUTs will only work in certain situations? I've placed LUTs that made Grandma's home movies look like Ben Hur, on to my clips, and they turn into mush. I'll try this new one on some other clips as a test. I will admit your other LUTs in this thread seem to be working across the board.

Will report back.

i get your point, but I did notice that underexposed footage has some unique characteristics like:

1. strange highlights with colorful detail mixed in
2. bluer/more saturated shadows
3. compressed midtones

this may not work for all kinds of low light stuff, but my suspicion is that it will get you there faster, especially if you have the original editable xmp!

I have no idea what to do with the xmp's. Anyway, I tried it on a fairly well lit clip by mistake and it came out horrible, however your gh5 neutral really looked nice. My sound bar was acting up so I've been messing with that most of the morning. I'll get to applying it to an actual underlit scene and, as usual, report back.

well, show me the well lit screen with my low light lut, jk! btw, are you going to make any more movies?

how to edit xmp files:

you can make your own look that is very high quality for free!

lut creation instructions:
grade inside photoshop convert video to smart object or just grade one png frame, and open as adobe camera raw, then save preset as .xmp. then you download
https://sellfy.com/p/aQ1y/
after generating its lut table, take that png into photoshop, apply your .xmp preset in adobe camera raw and save-as a new filename.
then open iwltap lut creator(click its question box to select 64 cube) and select the new filename. it will create a brand new 64 cube lut.

Too much trouble for me. I'd rather have you do it 😉

By making more movies do you mean my green screen comedies? If so, yeah, I've made 3 since we moved to my new place. I'm currently dry on ideas right now. If I could I'd make 2 or 3 every week, but I make up the dialog and situations as I shoot. It gets hard after a while. But I love doing it, I'd love even more to be able to get out and shoot some really nice footage.

Anyway, here's the latest 3. If you've ever watched The Haunted Collector you'll get a kick out of them. If not, they won't make much sense.

I don't know why I didn't think of this before. Here is a video with a "look" that I always am striving for. I can never get that skin tone. I don't know if he's wearing makeup or what, by my face is always 4 different skin tones with glare on top.

I'd like you to either:
1. Create a LUT that can get close to this look. OR...
2. Tell me why it needs more than a LUT to accomplish this and what I need to do. I just shot some footage in these same conditions and it just looks like crap even after color correcting and grading.

If you could do that I can finally die ;-)

i need a png that has grass, sky and a close face in focus to do a reference shot. at first glance, it looks like they moved the orange, red and green hues around. also, possibly, the white balance is offset a smidge. the other 50% is that in that place, you can't make bad photos, the lighting is diffused, colorful, and well, that's why people go traveling abroad and all consumer camera companies go to iceland and such places :)

i can synthesize a lut from your property's grass, sky and your own face. it has to be properly exposed, and not high contrast sunlight but it is possible, albeit, very difficult. I would have to extrapolate a 3D lut without a chip chart of two completely unmatching pictures. keep in mind, the colors would match, but the light diffusion would also have to match. ie. slightly diffused clouds around 15% cover. that's one thing luts can't do, mimic light diffusion.

btw:
i am curious, did that low light lut work for any other dark footage?

I must have to shoot in really low light because it just turns everything into super nova bright. Also, and I hate to tell you, but it appears some of your LUTs causes Lumetri to throw an error that you can't recover from. I have to shut down and restart PPro. I believe it happened, in fact, when I tried the low light LUT on some footage I just shot.

Anyway, believe it or not, the pest control guy was at my house just now and sprayed me full on the face by accident so I'm off to take a loooooong shower.

i've been using iwltap luts for months, almost a year now, and never seen any crashes. did you accidentally put them in creative folder? that will crash premiere all right. they need to go in technical in a subfolder or on your desktop and also need to be in adobe media encoder same folder structure. is lumetri crashing any other things? try software render.

also, hope your feeling better after that sprayer guy. at least they don't use that old stuff anymore which is not sewer safe, you know, the crazy strong stuff.

No, the LUTs are in their own folder (which as you know doesn't neatly organize them) inside the Technical folder in both PPro and AME. I don't think it was the LUT, like I said it was just time for PPro to crash. You know how it does on occasion.

I've been getting weird skin tones today. Shooting in the same room but under a sunnier conditions. Here's an ungraded shot, then with gh5 indoor neutral/w lightened blacks (they're all doing it while the official LUT is getting a lot closer to correct skin tone.

EDIT: I'll have to do it tomorrow, for some reason my upload speed right now is like 5kbps.

what you need is a sunny lut at 6500k lol. I recommend using a white balance card using 90% white. it makes post easier.

0% reflectance (black): 7.3 IRE
18% reflectance (middle gray card): 42 IRE
90% reflectance (white): 61 IRE
absolute clipped superwhite: 80 IRE

you can also try a chip chart and resolve's color match or 3rd lut creator which reads the chip chart and builds a custom 3d lut.

I use 18% gray and sometimes white when it's too dark for the camera to see the gray, but that's not the problem. I know how to do manual white balance, and it's not the camera as I've had this problem with both the GH4 and GH5. We're getting back to my original point. I just plain suck.

Still can't upload those latest samples. Waiting for the friggin' cable guy to come tomorrow.

Let me know if you need any thing else. you're gonna love the chip chart auto color and split vectorscopes, tracking, etc. when you get 400mpbs codec, let us know, we'd love to see the footage.

Will do!

Two questions. I know you have to use .wav file audio in Resolve, but I tried applying a .wav file to an audio track and it doesn't take. I even get the red circle with the red slash going through it when I hover over an audio track. What up with that?

Second question, I suddenly can't place transitions between clips. I don't get the red circle slash thing, but they just don't get applied. Any ideas? They worked in other "projects" but in this one project it won't work. Same type of clips as other projects. Weird.

UPDATE: For some reason only certain clips won't let me add transitions. Even if I place one of these clips next to one that does let me apply a transition, only the side with the "good" clip will accept the transition. Even though these are all V Log clips shot on the GH5 in C4K 24p. Like I said, weird!

I will definitely zip up some 400mpbs ALL-I clips for you once the firmware update comes at the end of the month. Might have to shoot indoors as we're being bombarded with stink bugs round these here parts!!! Seriously.

btw I tried white balancing using the color chart but it turned everything acid trippy like. I found a cool way to fix white balance using curves and a key, though.

Hey Chris, just an update. Still waiting for firmware 2.0. Saturday is the latest we should get it but I've read that Panasonic "Luminaries" are planning events for this weekend around the upgrade so it could be Thursday or Friday.

Also, just to wrap things up, my transition problem turned to be that Resolve, unlike Premiere Pro, won't let you drop a transition between clips if there isn't any extra footage at the end or beginning of a clip, whereas PPro will let you do a transition but it warns that it will repeat frames.

Hi Duke

"For some reason only certain clips won't let me add transitions."

In Davinci resolve, you can select a clip - hold Shift + ALT and then drag the clip over another clip - thereby creating a Cross Dissolve automatically - In the Inspector you can then choose another transition.

Thanks, Ole, but I found the problem. Unlike Premiere Pro, if you don't have excess footage you've trimmed from the beginning and/or end of clips, Resolve won't let you create a transition. In PPro, you still can but it will use the last frame and beginning frame, causing a bit of a freeze frame effect. When I trimmed a clip, then Resolve let me drop transitions between the clips.

But thanks anyway!

btw, just got firmware update 2.0 for the GH5. I'll be uploading short clips here later today for people to play with, as Chris Wright requested.

Hey Chris, in order to make the clips useable for you let me know what you'd like. V Log or HLG. Properly exposed or dark. Indoor or out. I will keep the clips at around 3-5 seconds since they're huge at 400mb's.

Really? A png file will hold all the data you need to experiment with 400mb's of data? OK, coming up.

Hey Chris, could you do me a favor and post the results of your tweaking here? I figure if the pumpkin shows up as purple on my monitor I've got some adjusting to do ;-)

I tested it with the gh5 neutral 2% raised blacks. I fiddled around and couldn't get better settings from the xmp than I had before. But wow! the all-i has beautiful highlight rolloff now. just check out the reflection of the sun off the wood railings and the leaves. no more ugly dlsr clipping. man, that lut sure loves that camera.

Yikes, I didn't realize my face was that out of focus. I always have a problem with that. Since the pumpkin is in focus my face should have been too. I'll send you more later if you want. Are you sure you don't want like a 3 second clip to play with?

any shots with motion? the all-i was supposed to make really nice motion like film movement as well.
you know what I mean? weird judder with h.264 cameras. this could make the gh5 a workable film camera now.
12 stops dynamic range, no clipping, good colors, good motion.

also, a shot of the sky or a flower at 10 bit would work well with trillions of colors(might need to export from AE as premiere and media encoder doesn't support png higher than 8 bit. your skin was exactly 70 ire and dead on the skin tone line.

ok so you want a shot with motion blur?

I'll get these other shots to you tomorrow morning. I don't know where you live but it's nighttime here.

I didn't mean introduce a false motion blur, I meant capture a still from the video where motion blur exists.

There's no flowers here, only green stuff. I'll have to go to a nursery. Tough finding open sky as well with all these trees!

The soil here on my new property is excellent. Where I used to live, developers had a habit of scraping all the top soil away from new construction and selling it, leaving only clay. I'm pretty sure I can just drop a potted plant here and it will take root and grow.

I sold my G7 to get a GH4. Then I sold the GH4 to get the GH5. Remember, this is a hobby for me. I don't expect the upgrade in cameras to make me a better videographer. In fact, other than my green screen crap, I really haven't shot anything worth talking about.
