DCP output color confirming method.
on Jun 28, 2014 at 4:58:09 am

Hello, sorry if this isn't the appropriate forum for this question, I couldn't find a better one.

I have tiff images originated from resolve that I am making a DCP with.
The color grader said he used Rec709 with 2.4 Gamma (while monitoring?)
If I do the dcp with the standard 2.2 Gamma input, the results are identical to the original tiffs.
However, if I make the DCP using the easyDCP creator with the amended xml to change input gamma from 2.2 to 2.4, the resulting images are darker than original tiffs. So I am going with standard 2.2.

My question is if my method to assess the accuracy of the results is correct.
Here is what I am doing:
-Creating DCPs with both 2.2 and 2.4 settings.
-Opening the DCPs in Easy DCP player with XYZ-->RGB conversion turned on.
-Taking screenshots of the exact frames on both DCPs.
-Bringing these screenshots and the original Tiff frame into After Effects and monitoring on HP dream color at Rec709.

I am under the impression that on the HP dream color, the screenshot of the DCP should be identical to the original Tiff.
Would that be the way?

Thanks four any advice in advance.
