I got my hand on the first Alexa35 footage from a project that we are started to work on now.
The film has a lot of bluesceen shots. We will comp in Nuke.
We converted the footage with Resolve 18 to ACES 2065-1 in an ACES project.
The grading will be done in another post house on Baselight.
For a test we received a graded DPX (Rec.709), a ungraded EXR in AWG3/linear from Baselight
and a BLG file with the grade.
The grade with the Baselight for Nuke plug-in matches the DPX reference frames when I am using the ungraded EXR footage from the Baselight export.
But I found a difference between the ungraded EXRs from Resolve and Baselight.
The red channel and a bit the green channel is different. Its not very obvious when viewing the blue screen shot as a whole, but it’s visible in the histogram and if you look closer.
Here is a little A/B comparison from Nuke.
Maybe someone has an idea why the two conversions look different?
After watching the ARRI Tech Talk from @SeanCooper I wonder about the colourspace journey in Baselight a bit. Can I always easily convert between AGW3 and AWG4? I thought this was not so easy?@daniele
