    Ok, filmed my first test footage on my new BCC. Used DNxHD Film mode to record. Using Premiere Pro to look at the footage. It is beautiful but of course has that log look. What is the easiest way to get the color back to normal? Is there a lut I can use in premiere pro CS6, or should I just throw a s-curve on it or use colorista or what? I just want to ballpark it at this point.

    Put it in resolve and put the BMC lut on it and export it to cs6...i mean you only want to view it right? Other than that you'll have to do your own s curve and contrast ect in premiere

    The one problem I have in doing that is that I have a radeon 5970 graphic card on my PC and apparently that doesn't support CUDA which is necessary to run Resolve. So I guess I'll have to mess with the footage in PP on my own until I can upgrade my card.

    Have you tried running it?
    I run Resolve on a 5770 and 5870 time to time (Mac Pro).
    Sure you wont get real time playback without that CUDA card but you can at least bake some LUTs

    You can export the BMC LUT from Resolve and use it in Premiere with the free plugin "LUT Buddy" from RedGiant

    Don't worry so much about Resolve being realtime, it's still a very useable program when it is not. I've been working with 5K Red files and I imagine the workflow without CUDA would match my experience using 5K Red with no redrocket card. I suggest applying the LUT in Resolve, PP's coloring tools are prehistoric, even with curves. Frank's got a great tip above.

    Give Prores a try. DNxHD looks too washed out in Premiere, like "double log"...
    Prores has the correct log look and can easily be corrected.

    My research indicates that Resolve has to have a CUDA card to run in Windows. My Resolve just crashes when I try to run it. Thus the problem.

    xD! I donīt know whatīs wrong with premiere. If you render out DNxHD in Premiere itīs perfectly fine. It reimports and plays back in quicktime with the correct gamma but DNxHD from a hyperdeck or the bmcc has messed up gamma faaar too logish than it should be.
