I have some more samples in Raw but the files will take a long time to upload.

Enjoy! Try the Alexa curve in Resolve 9

Question, is the Alexa curve a preset in R9?

I downloaded the footage with the pan from the building to your wife. Beautiful shot definitely reminiscent of Alexa footage! Mind if I ask your settings - ISO, lens, f stop etc. Nice operating by the way!

Cheers,

Sam

Thanks for sharing. I am looking forward to seeing some grades of these.

Hi!

If you right click on a Node and hit LUT - there should be a LUT called Arri->alexa rec709

That's the one!

Hi Sam,

Thank you for the kind words. We were just playing around.

I was using the 24mm Rokinon by Samyang - I believe I was around a 2.8 towards a 4 split - no ND at this time of day, 800 asa.

I was testing using a 1/2 UltraCon - also think I want to add an Ultracon 1/4 and Ultracon 1 to the set. I also have a Glimmer Glass I haven't tested yet, but all the diffusion filters out there will push you even closer to an Alexa (or Epic which is also quite a gorgeous and smoothe camera when used correctly) I leave it up to you to find the recipe you like best for your footage, but I think the lack of an OLPF on this camera is actually a unique asset when treated correctly. I want to do more testing regarding IR pollution...

I will do my best to make this happen soonish.

I'm aiming to shoot some humans with a BMCC + Epic + Alexa to do a little comparison (I don't dare call it a shootout).

Just downloaded the clip with your wife, opened in FCP7, pushed all the saturation, Half mids and a little of white and it's amazing how is good!!

It's been mentioned elsewhere, but there's now a "bmd film" curve in the release version of Resolve to replicate the FILM curve from the camera.

It's also worth noting it's aplpied in the DNG file.

This is done BEFORE the footage hits the colour corrector. Yopu've only applied a "LUT" when doing it in the colour corrector. Using the DNG page and loading the curve is a much better way to get the most out of the camera.

If you don't want to pass by Resolve, you can apply LUT directly in your editor:

This curve is only for the dng sequences though right, since they come in as linear.

So, one could use the dng to film lut as a default and then relinearize with the Alexa rec709 out transform if they feel lazy.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all about a full one light for every scene but this is a great way to do a simple comparison because many people react well to the Alexa default curve.

I've even used it on epic footage with redlogfilm as the baseline.
