So having difficulty with redcin-x build 221 and trascoding to prores 4444.
I'm using MacPro, redcine-x build 221, redrocket card that is running from HD-SDI dual link out into an AJA Hi5-3G that converts HD-SDI to HDMi and that is connected to my HP Dreamcolor monitor.
The monitor is set to REC 709 that has a gamma of 2.4 (not 2.2)--I suppose this is normal for REC 709 ? I have many options with the HP Dreamcolor for colorspace settings such as:
*Full; AdobeRGB, Rec.601, and a few others, but REC.709 seems appropriate.
everything goes nice while using redcine-x v221 and image looks great on my HP dreamcolor. My other monitor is a Dell u2410 that has the viewer and other workspace on it. It does not match perfect the dreamcolor, but it's not terrible. So, when making color corrections everything is good, then i go to transcode to Prores 4444 and my settings are:
frame per second: 29.97 (it was shot at that speed)
Gamma Correction: None
Depth: millions of collors +
**When i finally get the file baked as a .mov and play it, the image/movie is very unsaturated and has a WASHED OUT look to it. It's as if all the color I put into it with the first pass of color correction was for nothing. It is quite frankly not even a close representation of the image i created.
*I also had downloaded the latest quicktime component and installed it in the redcine library. So that was done.
Anyone have an explanation or fix?
