I'm shooting a VFX heavy short-film with the Black Magic 4K Production camera.
I shot some tests using prores 422, but when I bring the clip into Nuke (or Premiere, or After Effects), all my highlights are clamped at 1, instead of having range beyond white.
I also tried using prores QTs from other people's BM cameras, same problem. So it can't be my camera.
I have a feeling I'm doing something wrong in my workflow.
Are prores Quicktimes only meant to be used in Final Cut and then exported as a DPX sequence? I tried viewing them on a PC and a Mac, but I don't have Final Cut. I was hoping to edit everything in Premiere Pro, then export DPX sequences to do the VFX
Anyone experienced this problem with having no dynamic range with Prores QTs?
Adobe CinemaDNG @ 2.5K RAW
Apple ProRes Log 4:2:2 HQ @ 1080 "Film" (log) or "Video" (Rec. 709) gamma.
Avid DNxHD @ 1080 "Film" (log) or "Video" (Rec. 709) gamma.
here's the 3 modes. if you selected rec709, there is no beyond white, its burned in. if you selected log, its stuck in there
as needing a log to linear lut called a BMD film log lut in Resolve. I like captain hook's grading luts myself. http://www.captainhook.co.nz/blackmagic-cinema-camera-lut/
