I'm a DP planing the postproduction for a feature length documentary for cinema I shot for a small production company here in Switzerland. We are planing to set up a Resolve system for the future, which a professional colorist can work with. I'd like to get your opinion on a setup that works for a professional colorist to get the job done.
We currently have the following system:
2x 2.26 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon
24 GB RAM
ATI Radeon HD 4870 512 MB
BM DeckLink HD Extreme 3D
2x Dell Ultrasharp 24" Monitors
1x JVC DT-V20L3D Video Monitor
We are planing to get a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 for Resolve GPU processing and the complete TangentDesign Element panels.
We were thinking to rent a high class monitor for the time of the color grading. Since buying such a monitor is beyond the budget an we have a JVC monitor to work with for smaller projects.
