It’s a bit off topic, but on a still running project we got drone footage as ProRes RAW.
We don’t have a Baselight or Scratch available, so we converted the ProRes RAW files with Apple Compressor to D-Log with Rec.2020 primaries (this is the proposed default that is set automatically) as ProRes 4444 files.
Only now we were able to further process the footage in Resolve and later work with it in Nuke (ACES).
In Nuke we have seemingly clipped blacks with a ACES Rec.709 ODT, but in reality the darkest shadow pixels are all just filled with a lot of negative values.
I wonder if nowadays the default knob in the grade node in nuke to clamp at “zero” is the best choice if we may encounter more and more negative values from camera encodings.
In this case I am not really sure if something unwanted is happening in the Apple Compressor conversion step.
