I see all of these options under Color Space and Transforms and I don't see any difference in image quality when I change them, but there must be on correct setting for each, isn't there? I have a GH5, set to C4K 24fps 400mb with All-I compression. Is there one proper setting for each of these?

Short answer: Don't touch the color management settings if you don't know what it does.

Long answer: The Resolve color management is neat if you have bunch of differently shot formats and work on them without adding a lut or a base grade to every one of them to a common gamut/gamma. Or you want to deliver/monitor your input/output to a specific gamut/gamma.

Also read the manual. Page 135 ->

I'll put it on my to do list 😉

Tero, you may act like you're frustrated with me but I can tell, you think of me as a doddering old grandfather type, who digs hot chicks. Admit it! ;-)

If you have a few bucks to spare I would heartily recommend checking out the Resolve 14 101 from Ripple Training:

http://www.rippletraining.com/products/davinci-resolve/editing-color-gradin...

They go through pretty much every little thing in the program and it's probably more fun than the manual. When a new version is released there's also usually a "What's new in Resolve xx" series made by Alexis Van Hurkman who's written the Color Correction handbook and a few editions of the Resolve manuals.
