Just because I don't jump from joy at any "new" color science iterations, that should had been done right in the first place? RedLog anyone? Or because I don't buy this demonization of DPX?
Funny thing Mark. It seems, that you yourself, without even realizing it use DPX for grading every time you use Resolve. Why? Because, as you know you can't grade RAW. First RAW has to be debayered, decompressed and finally gamma encoded, be it linear or log. Only then you can start grading it. And guess what happens in Resolve or for that matter in any other grading software? The same process, except some software, like Nucoda or Flame/Smoke does it explicitly in the background and actually writing DPX to the drive, while other, like Resolve or Baselight (instead of DPX, it uses uncompressed 16 bit RGB files) do it on the fly and keeps it in the RAM without writing it do disk. But it's the same process. So, I don't understand this notion, that using DPX is bad and anyone still using it is wrong. There are many reasons why you'd want to use DPX, as few already pointed out. May be if Red would stop releasing new SDK every few months, may be then manufacturers would have a chance to catch up with "newer and more better" SDK. In the same time frame, how many SDK did ARRI released?
I work with pretty much every camera out there. I can't afford to favor any camera, Red is just one. And I do what I have to do to keep up with ever changing technology in order to provide quality service. Said that, Red clearly takes more time to keep up with, than all other cameras combined. May be Red should listen a bit more instead of keep talking over users. There is a clear need to simplify and KiPro or Sound devices is not it...
No, I'm not angry:-)
