    God bless you brother! I loved this tutorial! Funny with the part about the HUE vs HUE where you said it might look intimidated… it was to me until you explained it. Then I tested it with my footage and wow QUALITY of footage improved a LOT!

    Hi Stewart, impressing short tutorial for quick action after D-Log. What I didn't understand is which colour correction and grading software you use.

    Being colourblind, i've always been nervous about colour grading. This though, this i can understand perfectly. Now if only Fife weren't so grey and windy I'd maybe get some footage WITH colour to correct and grade.

    Would you recommend D-Log (P4P) and D-Cinelike (Mavic Air 1) for night, low light videos…or Normal mode? Hope to save shadows and dynamic range if possible.

    Great video very helpful. So you suggest we color correct then put the LUT on? Or vice versa?

    hi. i just got the air 2 s. im having probs editing the h.265 d-log. you need to have a pc from Nasa to edit it lol. why are we not told about this before we get the drones. if i had known how much trouble it would be to edit i would of stayed with my mini 2. i have a i9-9900k 2080 super pc and it wont run smooth at all. any help welcome. thanx.

    Thank you Stewart! Very helpful! What does the DJI LUT for Dlog-M to REC 709 exactly do? It is my understanding that it is the fast way to convert the log footage into a somewhat acceptable format? If I would use the Dlog LUT at first, can this help me to save time? I would then apply similar adjustment like to showed, but they might require less adjustment and then I could add a custom LUT as a third step? Thanks in advance!

  • Sergey Alimov
    March 16, 2022 at 1:51 pm

    Omg. Why didn’t you change first the color profile from 10bit DLog to Rec709 ?

    It's funny how I've already learned this stuff, yet watching it from someone else makes me feel a stronger sense of discovery and gratification I felt when I was learning it by myself through experimentation.

    I already was familiar with photography and editing, so I was applying it to the drone footage. The information just hits differently coming from someone else and I feel even more pleasure. 😁

    Stewart explained the concepts as well as the procedure. I am new to the game and use Davinci Resolve so a different editor. I have watched a number of colour grading videos and this is the only one that resonated. I'm not good at it yet but my videos are better because of the advice in this video.

    Very helpful video. Just one question. I just started messing around with HLG footage on my new Air 2s. Do I want to keep my project in REC.709 or should I be setting the color space to wide gamut HDR?

    Useful video….I had always being doing it the other way (ie LuT first) but now I can see the sense and logic of adjusting first before adding the Lut

    thanks

    I subscribe to your channel & appreciate your videos. As a photographer for over 50 years I have somewhat different thoughts on what "color correction" means than some others. To me that means getting colors right, what they actually are as opposed to something we may find pleasing. I would call it "color adjusting" when we set colors to something we like rather that what they actually are because while they may be more pleasing they are incorrect.

    I color correct by neutralizing any color imbalance in an image or footage. In order to make colors "correct" one has to know their values, what they should be in order to set them to those values, and this requires having known colors in the subject which isn't always the case. I look for objects I know to be black, white and gray. These are all neutral, and absent color bias. Read with a software sensitometer like the eyedropper tool in PhotoShop all 3 channels (assuming an RGB color space) must be of equal value in order to be neutral.

    Clouds during mid day are pretty neutral, so I would set a sensitometer point on a cloud and while making sure the brightest spots are below 255 (in order to avoid areas that may have been clipped) I adjust two of the three channels to the value of the third thereby correcting the whites to neutrality. If I am lucky enough to also have a known black in the image I will set a sensitometer point there and again, adjusting the same two channels used to correct the whites I will correct the blacks. It's important to use only two channels or you wind up undoing previous adjustments. (e.g. If you adjust red and blue [which combined make magenta], then also adjust green [which is magenta's compliment] you also adjust magenta which you had just set by adjusting red and blue. It is necessary to understand something of RGB color theory–complimentary colors–in order to grasp the explanation I just offered.

    When the whites and blacks have been neutralized I find that all the other colors fall into place. (Incidentally, black, white and gray in a sense are not colors but rather the absence of color because all three channels are of equal value representing neutrality and it is only when at least one channel is different than the others that color or color bias in introduced.)

    Only after neutralizing color balance will I adjust hue, saturation, contrast, etc. I am careful to call these latter adjustments which are subjective rather than corrections which are objective.

    I am not saying there aren't other ways of doing things but the way I go about it seems logical to me and almost always if not always works.

    Why isn't the first step to apply a DLog to 709 LUT? Wouldn't that get you closer to the color correction starting point?
