Here is a TIFF file that I had worked from Rocketcine-X using dreamcolor monitored from HD-SDI thru AJA to HDMI so viewing and correcting at 10bit with dreamcolor monitor set to "FULL" as colorspace with the Gamma in FULL mode set to 2.2
Looked great on the Dreamcolor monitor, but on my Mac via DVI and ATI 4870HD graphics card at 8bit using Mac's gamma of 2.2 it looks washed out and de-saturated. Not sure if this screenshot will do this rant justice.
EDIT: the screenshot does not show anything....since i have no reference.
Ok....I think I've run out of ideas and tests. I would be perfectly willing to send you guys a clip to see for yourselves what i have tested. Say (as David suggested) a small 2-3 second clip to see for yourselves. It would be however nice if one of you had a dreamcolor to monitor extactly what i see, but at the least a QT prores 4444 clip transcoded may tell???
Here are two screenshots of the EXACT same image BUT one was corrected in Redcine v 20 and the other in Redcine build 221 with redcode QT component 4.1 added.
You'll notice a big difference in the saturation in the two shots. I had originally corrected the RCv20 image using my Dell U2410 and the image showed on my non-calibrated screen nicely, but on a REC.709 it is darker and more saturated--but the difference is not ovewhelming.
The image RC-X-build221 was corrected using RC-X and corrected on my Dreamcolor emulating REC709. Looked great while correcting on the monitor, but when I output a QT it looked terrible and washed out.
CONCLUSION: i can only come to the conclusion (no science--only my eyes and two days of testing) that RC-X build 221 and the new QT component are not outputting the new color-science correctly. It is clear that with Redcine V20 i could get images to look fairly close to what i saw them looking like in Redcine and the prores transcodes, but that is NOT the case in my recent transcodes using build 221.
Comments?? other ideas?
I can't be the only one experiencing this problem??
This a huge difference.....
please post the short r3d.
I'll see about posting two clips tomorrow.
