The Panasonic S1H has what looks like a brilliant feature for photographers… the ability to monitor through a 3D LUT. However, when I take a photo with the V-Log profile, the raw file (.RW2) that comes out looks nothing like a log file (using the jpg as a reference, which is encoded with the V-Log profile), through any software (capture one, raw therapee, exposure, Davinci Resolve [converted to DNG]). I also have a Varicam LT and when I shoot raw cDNG files externally to an Atomos Shogun Inferno I can transform the file, through the raw tab, into a V-log / v-gamut encoded image (they match 100% with the internally recorded files, meaning the raw conversion is is a mathematically correct version of V-log and not some chimped fake log file, and meaning my camera viewing LUTS look correct when applied in Davinci Resolve). I’ve tried a similar process with an .RW2 file converted to DNG and Davinci resolve doesn’t give the v-log/v-gamut option in the raw tab. If I try to use the color space transform the results aren’t correct, no matter what I try.
Basically, what I’m trying to do is create a raw file that converts to V-Log / V-Gamut, stripping it of any DCP / built in profile and then have the ability to use a 3D LUT, after any processing. I believe this is a scene referred grading style. The order would be camera linear raw -> V-Log/V-Gamut transform -> processing (white balance, curves, color balance, etc.) -> 3D look LUT into whatever applicable output color space / gamma.
Does anybody know if this is possible and/or how to do something like this? Thank you!
