I am working on a short film in Premiere and trying to determine proper sequence settings for a 1080p export to be used for an online submission to Sundance Film Festival. I am shooting with a Sony A7RIII (S-log3, S-Gamut3.Cine, saturation +3, detail -7, auto knee) recorded on an Atomos Ninja Flame in Pro Res HQ and I also have 120fps 1080p 100M XAVC.MP4 clips from the Sony. fyi There are several high dynamic range scenes in my clips with landscape sunsetting scenes etc.
I would like to know if I should use "composite in linear color" and how this will affect my project. my intention is to assemble clips then color grade in davinci resolve. I would also like to know if it makes sense for me to edit native Pro Res HQ without creating proxy files for my system.
My System Specs:
My sequence settings:
Do i have it right? Any insight is greatly appreciated, i apologize if anything is unclear here.
I do always un-check "composite in linear color" since it mess upp with transitions under some circumstanses. No one from Adobe has never in detail commented what that setting actually do, in fact they never comment it for some reason...
If your footage is 8-bit you don´t need "Maximum Bit Depth" either. If your source footage is 1080 you don´t need "Maximum Render Quality" either.
