Hi everyone, Long time Premiere Pro user here. I'm giving FCPX a try because performance of Premiere Pro on my Mac has never been good and I'm hearing FCPX is far better. When I'm grading my footage, I like to the "Channel Mixer" tool in Premiere to make adjustments to the individual color channels. Does anyone know if there is an equivalent tool in FCPX? Thanks!
Further to my previous two posts on this topic, PART 1 and PART 2, I practiced with grading of my HLG footage in FCPX a little bit more. So far, I found that the best way to grade HLG footage for SDR TVs and screens is to grade them on Rec.709 Timeline using the following LUTs: Lemming Camera LUT 'Pro Sony A - HLG to Rec.709 and Custom LUT 'Quicker - Neutral Film Brightest'. After applying LUTs, I graded clips as usual. It does not take more time and does not require a special monitor. There are probably other and better ways to grade HLG footage, but I do not know them yet. Here is the link to the video Shooting HLG Underwater-Grading on Rec 709 Timeline You could see depth, ISO and F values of each clip in captions. Another version of this video, graded in Premier Pro, was kindly put together by Juan M.Núñez It would be interesting to know your opinion about the quality of images on SDR screens. Also, if anyone would like to play with raw HLG clips that Juan and I used in these two videos, please let me know and I will share a link to the Dropbox.
Quite a few people ask me to help with workflow on their Adobe Premiere Pro workflow. I'm far too busy to help people individually and they don't seem comfortable to ask the questions in the forums. Vince LaForet made a video tutorial for CS5.5 Premiere Pro last year. CS6 has many more powerful features but the basic functions of power of CS6 were mentioned for basic editing in NON-LINEAR fashion. This video is a great little tutorial to get people started (even some info for Final Cut switchers). For Red Epic/Scarlet/One users, there's a section on importing .r3d files and working with Red Cine X. Again please note CS6 is more powerful and has more features: [vimeohd]26657845[/vimeohd]
