Blackmagic Releases DaVinci Resolve 12 as a Free Public Beta

Blackmagic Design releases DaVinci Resolve 12 free beta
Those longing for the features of Blackmagic Design’s (nearly) $1,000 DaVinci Resolve 12 Studio take heart — the Resolve 12 version is now available as a free public beta. Compatible with Mac and PC, this is a professional editing system for projects in standard-, high- and ultra HD-definition and its enhanced color correction and finishing capabilities was first described at the NAB show earlier this year.

My business partner and I are trying to match our cameras color settings.

He ownes a Canon C100.   I own a Panasonic AF100.


Does anyone have any advice on how to match the camera color settings?


Usually we both shoot flat so that the color correction has more of a range.

From our tests the AF100 shoots more blue, and the Canon shoots more red.


Please help!!!  

Thanks.  -Brad's picture

hello all,


i recently bought a canon xf300. it is my first high def tapeless camera... and it is my first time working with the 4:2:2 colorspace. first off, let me say that i edit using FCP 6.0.6 and that this is the first time i've used the color-corrector with 4:2:2 video and what a dream!!! it works so much better than with SD.


Get Better Black and White by Adjusting your Color First

After Effects interface with black and white shot
We recently published an article on shooting in black and white, but that was really a beginners primer to black and white. To achieve truly great black and white shots, there’s one more step you need to do in post production to add polish.

I saw a tutorial where the guy talking about color correction said that the luma value should never go over 100 (he used the Waveform monitor in FCP X)


I shot this video and applied some color correction. After this process, the luma value is way over 100%. I think it still looks ok, what do you think?


I also applied the broadcast safe plugin but it didn't do much at all..
