    Hi

    Have a quick question.

    When shall we make the changes to R3D files, in terms of White Balance, ISO and Hue (for correct skin tones)? Is it after applying the IPP2 Luts or Before? Which is the correct way and what would be the issue with doing it in other way?

    I kind of feel, ISO and Exposure changes shall be done prior to applying LUT and WB/Hue changes after applying the LUT.

    Also, after applying the LUT, is it ok to adjust ISO settings in R3D metadata than using exposure sliders that comes with in FCPX? My thought about preferring R3D metadata over FCPX exposure sliders is that, applying LUT may have already crushed some of highlights or dark areas.


    Your inputs would be very helpful.

    Thanks
    Uday
