    I have to hand it to Adobe, if they had fixed CDNG raw debayering, I wouldn't have stepped into Resolve 11 and seen how wonderful it really is

    I love the way Adobe ACR doing that. But I limited to 2003 process now because of flickering in motion. It is not a big trouble but I miss per--channel curves a lot! Hope Adobe will fix this bug sometime. This way of CG is much easier than rendering a ton of files in Resolve. And by the other hand a lot of photographers can use ACR easily without digging of another complex software. Resolve wins when some tracking or dynamical windows needed.

    In my opinion, resolve wins in every way - it just takes a bit longer to learn.

    Can I cheat, and make "grade my PNG" post?
    Everyone here seems to know way more about grading than I do, which is: pretty much nothing.
    I recently shot a music vid here in Tokyo at a restaurant and the only light I had was a small LED panel to light up the singer. The rest was the very-red restaurant lights. I think it looks not half bad with some of Film Convert's presets, but I'm wondering what the magical bmc community could do with it

    Here's my Day-for-night on one of Vic's military scenes....
    Went for more of a suspense vibe rather than a classic action film grade.

    My take:
    day_for_night_military_graded.jpg

    Original:
    day_for_night_military_original.jpg

    Resolve 11 Lite Process:
    • RAW data adjustments (notch down exposure by 1 stop, switched to tungsten WB to add blue to image, popped mid level detail by a bit and clicked the "retain highlights" checkbox)
    • BMDFilm to Lomo Color Implosion 21 CIN LUT
    • nodes to grade: desaturation tweak, exposure tweak, vignette, skin tone tweak, more blue/green color
    • Cineon to Kodak 2383 FPE (D50) LUT

    Hey here's one from a short we shot this summer that's being edited right now. I'll take a stab at one of the others myself tomorrow.

    Not an easy one to grade this, I guess its down to where you are willing to compromise on colour. Balance the background and you have a green singer, balance the foreground and the band are dark and red. I have tried to split the difference here and give the singer a bit of separation.

    Graded in R11, no power windows, just LGG and my lut.
