Log/raw and Rec709 stock b roll in a project rendered in PQ
Log/raw and Rec709 stock b roll in a project rendered in PQ
by Greg Knollmeyer on Jun 26, 2020 at 11:03:51 pm

I’m doing my first project in HDR. Typically I use stock footage for a good bit of b-roll. But most of it the stock stuff I’m familiar with is already color corrected and rendered out in a rec 709 color space. So even if it was shot in log/raw, the data is gone when I get the clip.

There does seem to be a pretty clear visual difference in the stock b-roll shots vs. the log stuff I’m grading and putting out in the PQ project. So I’ve got a few questions:

Anybody know of a good place for stock HDR footage?
Is there a quick way of identifying color space in a downloaded clip?
Is there a good way of making the rec 709 look better so it’s not jarring when going between those clips and the ones captured in raw/log and graded initially for PQ?
Thanks for any help.
