    What Brian said is also valid. I sometimes run the Legacy mode for grading and other times I run it through the IPP2 and they both, for me, work absolutely fine. I find that the IPP2 gives me better highlight retention and rolls off a little nicer than the Legacy workflow.

    Run 10+ year old MX footage with the older color science through the newer IPP2 color science and that same footage looks like it was shot with a different (upgraded) camera.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding. I am aware that Alexas have a RAW option, but a lot of productions are very happy with ProRes.
    Good production values may not be noticed. Bad production values will be.
