View Full Version : Resetting LUT Metadata
01-07-2009, 10:24 AM
Okay so quick question.
I shot a project using a LUT applied in camera to give the director an idea of the look. But now working in CS4 we want to remove that LUT from the r3d to edit natively. Is there an easy way to do that on a PC? Premier doesn't give the option to access all that data so how does one get back to true raw?

I'm curious to find this out about Meta data in a CS4 workflow as well.
Is there a way to edit R3D meta data with an external application?

When I shoot redspace and import to premiere, it looks nothing like redspace, very flat etc, so I presume the look you shoot with is not applied inside premiere at this time, it's rec709 from what I gather from the manual, as they say to adjust afx to view rec709 to look the same as it does in premiere, can adobe or red confirm this? or anyone else that knows.

hmm, the only way I can match the footage between prem and afx is if I interpret footage in afx and chose preserve rgb.
Every other way I try, using rec709 etc like they say in the manual, produces a much lighter picture in afx.
What settings are u all using in this regard?

Sorry for all the posts, just another note, when I import thru dynamic link a sequence from prem into afx, the picture is the same, when I import the premiere project into afx, then open the sequence this way, each clip needs color space set to preserve RGB for it to look the same as premiere.
Any input on how u are all going about from prem to afx greatly appreciated, as of now I'm just setting each clip in afx to preserve rgb, but the clips seem a bit dark to start out with for my liking.

From what i see here, Premiere assumes it was shot in REC709 gamma space, so if you have shot in RED Space (boosted levels), il will appear flat at first.
BUT, if you shoot REC709 in camera, the footage would be very close to what you saw in camera.

antoine, I have to check this out (shooting in 709-space), good hint!
but for now I already have a lot of shots done in redspace and as mentioned before they really look flat in premiere/afx. preserve rgb doesn't seem to be right - looks too dark indeed. anyone here who found the best matching presets for shots done in redspace? or how to conform the finished sequence in redcine? I tested different workflows but they all didn't work, so right now I'm doing it manual (clip by clip) to re-edit in DS for final grading... pretty annoying! fortunately it's just epk-footage, so it's not too hard to do so, but I can't believe there are no better opinions when working in pc-world... any tips would be greatly appreciated!!!

From everything I can gather, we are stuck with no redspace and flat/dark picture until the plugin gets updated so we can chose and or edit the metadata.
