please make sure to check the 'enable grading' in the timeline setup panel.
if you use custom preset, you dont see any grading effect at all in the render result?? (please recheck and do a extreme grading, re-render)
A very light/soft grading + qt gamma shift can look odd.
did you check the 'automatic color calibration' box in the output panel?
let me know if that helps.
Thanks for responsing Duy-Anh.
The box is checked for 'enable grading'.
What does the 'automatic color calibration' do? That is not checked.
I still don't see any grading effects in the rendered results. I have to use Prores 4444 than transcode that to the desired specs. I'd much rather do it out of the program instead. I've current in the program release so I don't know why I'm having this issue.
Rendering to Quicktime (h264... etc) will result in a gamma shift. The 'automatic color ....' will compare input and output and apply a correction lut.
Sounds really odd.
did you test the "extreme" scenario I suggested you above? can you try rendering to other formats like dpx? You can also attach some screenshots, that would be very helpful (Monitor - Look applied, Output Panel and Result)
I will get you those screen shots hopefully by tomorrow. Thanks.
. i have the same problem with speed grade ...i have imported canon 5d footage with cinestyle picture style...in osx preview or quicktime looks like in camera very flat but after import in speed grade it looks like standard picture style ...i tried to calibrate with default color profile from my macbook pro (after conversion from icc/icm to cube file with DispcalGUI as Alex Meija..described here ) but nothing happen when i select the cube profile in calibration..i think this is a bug inside Speed Grade i can't use it...i m back to colorista ii in AE..
the single profile in calibration that looks nearly like original footage is when i select gamma 1.8 but is not ok
I got the same Problem! When I export a file to H264 it looks like the original clip. Also the looks are not working any more...
