Hi there,
I have to work on some MXF files shoted with Canon C300 on C-Log.
When I import the files on AE CC, under color management I see "Embedded Profile: HDTV Rec 709 YCbCr.
The image doesn´t look Log. It´s like a LUT had been applied to it. I assume it is because of the embedded profile, am I right?

What would be the proper way to import and export the files so they can be color corrected in Assimilate Scratch after my work?

Any thought would be appreciated.
Thanks !

You will almost certainly not want to do your effects work in log, so you'd need something like a C-Log to Rec.709 LUT. AbelCine has published some here:

But of course I'm not sure what it is you're seeing now. Can you post a screenshot?
