    Going forward, I will be supporting HLG with [PRE] files, one for Tungsten and one for Daylight. Also, updates to Main and Soft will be going out soon.
    I've been asked for an example of the Alexa conversion on HLG footage. With regards to if it is as good as VLog, it is a precision match.
    I finally got around to shooting a comparison, and here are the stills.

    Here are the side by side Log shots (matching exposure & white balance) converted with a popular film conversion software that is supposed to match Kodak 5213.
    These should be identical -

    GH5 V-Log to the software's Kodak 5213:


    Alexa LogC to the software's Kodak 5213:


    Now, GH5 V-Log converted to GHa LogC, and then to the software's Kodak 5213:


    And last, an idea of what the Kodak 5213 conversion is supposed to look like, from the software's website:

    Hi Sage, have you plans making a similar LUT for the new pocket 4k? It has a Sony sensor, it should be similar to GH5s.
    Would be beautiful having a LUT to match a GH5 and the pocket 4k to the same colors.

    Absolutely, yes.

    Ironically, with the Alexa conversion, both cameras will look identical

    At this very moment, I am working on something incredibly important for the GH5, that will then directly benefit the P4K.

    Emotive Color Version 3

    Core LogC Details

    - Rewrote engine to work at 65x65x65, main files are now at eight times resolution (supporting files processed at that resolution)
    - Fine tuned multi-pass/smoothing technique, to achieve absolute smoothness of final files
    - Introduced Averaging (averaging two separate measurements/conversions of a light source)
    - Corrected LogC rolloff artifact introduced with Verde
    - Corrected far magenta-red artifact

    Emotive Color Component Details


    - Remade EC component to incorporate new Arri primaries that were quietly revised this summer for Alexa LF release
    (much deeper, more accurate red placement in relation to blue/green, and subtle hue shifts throughout)
    - Incorporated 'Sat Lock-Out", like hue lock out, that is fully accurate to saturation distribution between relative hues of Arri RGB primaries
    (corrects excessive saturation of orange/yellow/green in highlights, and under-saturation of blue in shadows)
    - Significantly refined saturation model
    - Unified EC for both WBs (taking a que from Arri's single R709) [Tungsten has significantly more contrast, higher ideal exposure]
    - Smoother rolloff placement in EC component
    - Replaced Pop with Linear (no highlight shoulder, better alternative to Arri R709)

    - Remade all PREs with latest process (at 65, provided at 33) - much more accurate and smooth
    - Entirely new PDF (and supplemental waveforms)
    - Added Daylight Skintone SBS
    - Updated 'Always Already' with V3 (Download 'Original File' - *Avoid watching in Firefox)
