    I've always did my color correction with the standard Avid options, but looking at some of the nice Davinci corrections I;m wondering if it's time to switch to Davinci. Can't work with the software now but curious how it looks when one of the Davinci users works with my footage. Who is willing to make test correction with some 50 seconds footage shot with the 5D in Technicolor Flat? I can send a very short clip just because I want to see an example of the options.

    Unless you want to keep it private. How about posting a link and let a few different people have a go? Might be interesting to see what different people might come up with.
    Some might be experts, others not, but interesting nonetheless.

    Put it on Vimeo if you have it or post a link. I like haavard's idea, most of us here aren't experts, myself included. xD

    I've used the word expert but I'm looking for users not just experts. File is uploading to Viemo now and I will place the footage when Vimeo is ready with transcoding.

    I've placed a file to download on Vimeo. Just some random shots from one shoot. All shot with technicolor picture style Canon 5D MKII. Curious what Davinci will bring for the correction.

    Is this a compressed file or the original? Looks compressed. Would likely need the original or a ProRes HQ Upload of the original.

    Here we go:

    I havent pushed the grade too far so the footage doesn't fall apart - I've left your white balance exactly as it was. You'll have so much more flexibility using Resolve wih BMCC footage...

    I didn't include the first 4 clips, since I ran out of time...

    I reckon you should switch to Resolve

    Thanks, looks good. Punchy, aspecialy the violins look great, glossy and shiny wood. Did you add sharpening? shots have a lot more punch and nice color grads. Details in de blacks are still there so nice tonals in the blacks.

    Yeah, I've added sharpening.

    On the blacks I'm trying something new with curves - lifting the blacks and adding a control point to bring back some of the detail and definition. So you still get lifted, creamy blacks but dont lose detail. Seems to work quite well...
