  1. #1 Importing footage looks over saturated 
    Everything I shot comes in looking nothing like it did when I shot it or the same when in FCPX. Very saturated and I can't seem to change it to how it looked when I shot it. Any help please.

    Make sure you update the Apple Red Workflow plugin.

    Noticed i have to change my settings to this to get it to work. Guess I need to stay away from IPP2?

    Austin,


    The Red Dragon 6K camera was incapable of IPP2 in-camera and only capable of a "Legacy" "Color Space" and "Gamma". So it makes sense that using "Legacy" controls in Redcine-X would make things look correct. If I may ask, what IPP2 settings did you have before you changed them?

    Austin,

    Yeah, those settings will take you strictly into IPP2 Land. I personally like all that the IPP2 workflow has to offer, the Out of Gamut Control, Smoother Highlight Roll-offs and the Highlight Recovery Algorithm. However, some who own and use Red Cinema Cameras not capable of recording in the IPP2 workflow in-camera, may simply want to just use their cameras in the "Legacy" Mode which their footage was originally recorded in. This way, they will get the image they tweaked so carefully in-camera in post.

    Thanks Rand. I noticed that it it was like putting a lut on it, but one that was super over saturated. Didn't really want to reverse it all to build it all over again. Hopefully ill have an IPP2 camera some day, then hopefully I can enjoy in all the offerings.

    Austin,

    Yeah, I don't think I would want to rebuild the look over again in the "IPP2" workflow when I already got it the way I wanted it in the "Legacy" workflow.
