    Testing my UM4.6K and Resolve workflow. The best way I found is making some storytelling.
    Here's a couple of frames in natural light. Shot in 2K, Prores 800 ISO.
    These are just a screengrabs of a preview 720p or Resolve crash over and over in my computer. Sorry the bad quality. (the frames looks pretty desaturated here, not sure why)
    Grading was simple: Kodak Lut after my own "Alexa" LUt and some touches for skin color and contrast. Then grain.

    That´s a great look, even with less saturation
    Can you post some Full Resolution Stills too, 2K or 1080 or what ever your Final Version will be.

    I'm struggling with the final version because only VLC can show the right color and contrast. Quicktime and FCPX annoying me.

    You need to go to your graphics card options and choose the whole spectrum (0-255) and also uncheck whatever you may have that makes the video player decide how it will play the video. It must be your graphics card to decide and it must be 0-255. Otherwise it will look like it lost contrast.

    I'm on Mac, not sure how to do that.
    Is kinda weird because it only happen in Quicktime, FCPX and iMac images preview. Show a bit desaturated, not much, but what annoying me is the color shift and highlights changes.
    In After Effects and VLC looks right. So it makes me think I'm rendering nothing wrong in DaVinci.
    I read a lot about it, but still don't know how to fix that.

    Thanks!

    On these a cheap Sigma 30/1.4 at 2.8. I don't like it but it's what I have.
    For the photography just natural light from a window and negative fill, black reflectors everywhere.
