When using ACES In Davinci Resolve 16.2.5 (and all versions that I have tried) when you wipe to the offline reference, the colour and contrast is wrong. I am using ACES. cct 1.1, but it doesn’t seem to matter what options are used, the same problem occurs.
All i want to do is to see what the edit was looking at in their suite as a reference.
I’m pretty sure Dado Valentic mentioned that there was a process to correct this in his Aces seminar, but he never mentioned how to do it. I’ve messaged Dado to see if he can explain his process, but thought I’d post here too. I’ve also posted on the blackmagic forum with no luck.
I’m not sure what the problem is. In theory, if you chose the correct IDT (in this case the reference is Rec709), it should just work. Gallery stills work ok, so you would think that they would follow the same colour pipeline.
I’ve tried converting the reference file as Aces CCT and bringing back in to Resolve but that’s not working.
Anyone know what is happening with it? Is it a flag in the file? My theory would be that I simply have to convert the reference to something else prior to bringing it in as a reference. I would have thought the obvious answer is Aces CCT but as that doesn’t work, does anyone have any ideas?
I can bring the reference into a track above and this works fine, but I’m not able to wipe to it. And it is very frustrating to use.
Thanks for any help
