we just bought a mac pro and davinci. Our preview monitor is a Flanders Scientific LM-2340W (couldn't afford the 2461) hooked up to a Deckling HD Extreme 3D.
The movie I will be grading is already cut in Adobe Premiere. We used the RED RAW data for cutting and have quite a few Effect Shots which will be thrown in as DPX Sequences out of After Effects.
I have a few questions about the workflow and especially about the color management and settings, because I couldn't find any infos about DaVinci with a LM-2340W.
I hope you can help me out and give me some hints or links which would help me along.
My first problem seems to be, that I have to grade for cinema. As I understand the LM-2340W is calibrated for Rec709 or at least has no color space selection.
Is there any way I still could manage a grading in DCI P3? Like Applying a LUT in Resolve? Or is the FSI display simply too far away from that color space?
Would it be possible to grade in Rec709 and transfer it to DCI P3 later (obviously with a worse quality - but how worse?)?
If I can't select a color space on the previewmonitor - how would I set up Resolve to get the correct colors?
In After Effects the projects are in Universal Camera Film Printing Density. When I use the LM-2340W as Previewmonitor in AE I have to apply a LUT Converter (Uinversal Camera Filmprinting Density to Rec709) above my layers to get it to look right.
Is this correct?
Also in the systemsettings of the Blackmagic Card if i choose 444 I get a green tinted preview. Can someone tell me what that is about?
I would really apreciate it if someone could help me out or give me a little push in the right direction.
Sorry for my english, I'm from Germany.
All the best,
