  1. #1 DPX 10 bit from REDAlert to Shake 
    Hi everybody,
    I known this is a "deja vu" post, but I need some more specific coordinates:
    I'm gonna color correct a 4k shooting with Shake in DPX 10bit log. What's the best settings for render dpx from REDAlert (I mean Color Space, Gamma Space etc.)?
    Thank you so much

    If you can make a custom log-lin conversion, you can go with redlog gamma, here you can find the conversion settings:

    Now, if you need a classic CINEON-like density values (blk95, wth685, etc), read the autodesk document:
    http://images.autodesk.com/adsk/file...whitepaper.pdf
    Redlog makes optimal use of the dinamic range over 10-bit resolution, but it´s a non-standart curve, so you need non-standart conversion to pull a correct video gamma image.
    In my case, I need an image as close as posible to a cineon scan because all film post software that works with log files (color, shake, autodesk, scratch, cinespace, etc...) are waiting cineon-like densities and some are not very friendly to adjust the log to lin conversion or view LUT, so, I´m using Autodesk´s setting (pdlog 985 exposure -2) to convert to DPX.
    If you´re going to film-out, you´ll need anyway to end in correct cineon densities if you want a no-problem film recording.

    Thanks...
    I'm going for video, but colorist and compositor asked anyway for log files.
    You would rather use RedAlert, RedRushes or Crimson to get Dpx.
    Ps editing is in Fcp

    Is Shake the best call for colour correction?

    not at all. you won't see playback in real time and is basicaly a compositing software...
    best one is depending on workflow and budget
    - scratch
    - pablo
    - color
    - lustre
    and more..
