My post from October 03 has a very short clip, but I can upload a larger one if it's helpful and those ProAV ones referenced don't cut it. Can I ask why you need "a few tens of seconds"?

Hi Jacob,

Thank you for this proposal. If I want a clip of 10 seconds (or a 2x5secondes) is to better "appreciate" the raw and avoid looping too often. If it's difficult, it will not be too bad. I would understand. :)

Thanks again for the proposal.

Samuele Lilliu wrote:Hi guys, I just received the following reply (see below) from the Canon support (after 50 days...). Replying to them would not make sense, as I would probably need to wait another month and a half to get an answer. I'm trying to make sense of the first two replies. If what they say is correct, the following are taking place when recording RAW:

1) You apply whatever profile before recording (Canon Log 3, Canon Log, or BT.709)
2) The RAW file is recorded using these settings (what does that mean?)
3) Resolve 'magically' bypasses these settings
4) These settings become visible only if you 'develop' the files with the Canon SW.

In my opinion this does not make sense. What do you guys think? All these questions could be avoided if Canon had published a paper describing what's going on here.

Anyways, I still think no matter what you select (Canon Log 3, Canon Log, or BT.709) it does not make any difference to the recorded RAW file (however these settings affect the proxy files recorded on the SD card).

----------------------------------
- Do the Custom Picture Settings (see page 123 of the manual) affect the Raw file?

One can adjust the settings on the RAW file according to adjustments made in the CP menu. Effectively you are telling the camera to apply a set of conditions to the image. It will still be a RAW file however (this process is similar to that of setting a colour space etc).

- When the files are opened in the Cinema Raw Development or in Davinci Resolve they look identical, although they have been shot using Canon Log 3, Canon Log, and BT.709.

If the image is being viewed before development, then you would not expect to see any differences as you are looking at the de-bayered image – it has no post settings applied to it.

- I understood that Log and Log 2 are not the same thing. Could you explain why the C-200 has only the options of Log and Log3, while the Cinema Raw Development has only Log2 and Log3. Why this mismatch?

Log2 is optimised for 4:2:2 (or higher) 10bit recording and cannot be natively applied to the MP4 option as it is 4:2:0 8bit or to CRL footage. When recording CRL the footage is captured at 10 or12bit and using something called a RAW GAMMA. This is not a “curve” in the traditional sense. When you process in CRD the options given are for the output file Gamma Curve to be applied as either Log 2 or Log 3. At this point the same considerations as other cameras with Log 2 come into play with Log 2 giving wider DR but requiring more work in post than Log 3. (C700 RAW works in a similar way).

It is possible to apply Log 2 because the footage is either 10 bit 0r 12bit and there is enough information within the CRL file to allow this level of conversion as well as the ability to output (after conversion) at higher image specs. So, there is no actual mismatch. Log or Log 3 can be applied to MP4 recording, CRL recording options are Log 3 or Log 2 AFTER development.


So the question is: what is Resolve doing? It doesn't give you the RAW controls so that you can choose which gamma you'd like to debayer into. Visually it looks like CLog3, but who knows? It'd really cut out a step if they enabled the same controls other RAW shooting cameras have.

White balance being technically acheivable in post-debayer linear RGB has been mentioned many times now. Walter, would you mind showing us your process for doing this on Canon's Cinema Raw Light files? Here is a very small file you're welcome to use where I've white balanced incorrectly:

http://www.fennworld.com/jfenn/Misc/C200-Raw_Test.zip

Even if you don't want to screen record or screen cap the process, could you quickly detail how you'd set it up in Resolve?

Thank you.


Not tested with WB but always use same method to adjust Exposure outside RAW controls:
Add two Color Space Transform nodes, and one more node in the middle.
Set first node input gamma Timeline Gamma in , Linear out
Set another node input gamma Linear in , Timeline Gamma out.
Adjust Gain in the node located in the middle. This produce exact result as Exposure slider in RAW controls.

Thanks for that Dmitry. This is basically the way I've been doing it with the same result Hendrik got in Nuke. I didn't think my process was off but this confirms that it's a Blackmagic issue rather than user error. For now I've just made my own LUT based on Canon Log 2 gamma to get from Blackmagic's debayering of C200 into linear with a color transform that looks accurate in the blues based on matching it to a chart to help minimize the improper gamut transform. Not ideal though. I was able to speak with Michael Edwards, Canon's Pro Market Specialist and the first Canon representative I've spoken with that knows enough to be conversational on this topic. He stated emphatically that Canon has provided all the necessary information to Blackmagic, that the raw light format is a file size compression (hence the light) but is not handicapped in any way visually or with regards to post processing capability, and that it's Blackmagic that we're all waiting on to properly support it. Currently, Blackmagic can not claim Resolve support for Canon C200 Cinema Raw Light files. Ability to open a file isn't the same as supporting the format.

Yes, it seems Canon (same as all other cameras) use some kind of additional input correction for RAW files that Color Space Transform node in Resolve can not implement.
In Resolve it always was a difference in colors from BM cameras RAW files compared to in-camera ProRes files. Few days ago i found that there are two different implementations of RAW input colors in Resolve. To get correct colors from RAW you need to bypass input color space transform in project settings. Probably we can see same issue with RAW files from C200 in Nuke and Resolve.

I also spoke to my canon rep and this was the response that i got. In fact, at IBC and at NAB, Canon and their multiple reps told me that this is on Blackmagic to implement and that they (Blackmagic) have the proper SDK in their hands to implement more controls and in theory un-grey the RAW tab, if they wished. When I talked to Blackmagic at those conferences, they seemed clueless on the subject. Here we are, months later with still no answer.

another update and yet the RAW tab is still greyed out for canon cinema raw light files...

Can we at least get some sort of acknowledgement that this is or is not being worked on, blackmagic?

This lack of support is as I suspected...incredibly helpful bunch of folks here.

I would say this is our # 1 issue with the Canon C200. Love, love the camera but i know wherever I grade i am leaving some bits on the table so to speak;

We have used Canon's RAW tool for 3 years for our C500 and now with the addition of the C200. it Does work, but it's kludgy, is terrible at tweaking per clip ( While balance and in/outs) and wildly slow to debayer.

In Resolve the workflow is sweet. But i can feel i am working in a small sandbox so to speak.

Mr./Ms. Black Magic - I have come to Love Resolve - much to my surprise - but I ( and it sounds like this entire growing community) need this to work properly, and professionally.

Thanks,
I play hockey & surf. This is my side gig.

In the case of Robert M., that's a pretty feeble GPU. It could also be a win7 issue, though format limitations usually don't lead to crashes.

If you post a link to some footage I'll try it on Win7. If you're on 10, what GPU?

Thank you for replying.

I am on Windows 7 and I really hope that's not the cause because Windows 10 is a non-starter.

I'd love to send you some of the footage but it belongs to the client and it wouldn't be prudent without their permission.

I am able to load the footage into the Canon RAW software and view it so I don't think there's anything wrong with that. Resolve does recognize the footage as c200 in the camera window but crashes immediately afterwards.

Here are my specs:

-Supermicro SuperServer 7048GR-TR
-Windows 7 Professional
-Dual Intel Xeon E5-2697 v3
-Maxwell Titan X GPU x 3

I tried one of the samples, linked to above. Selecting the drive on which that media resides was enough to crash the system.

Until there's formal support for Canon Raw, I don't how much you can conclude.

@Adam,

I wouldn't worry about it in the short term; C200 is a fantastic camera and an absolute treat to travel with!

I just got back from a trip to Hawaii where I shot a pro surfing tournament on the C200 in Raw (at both 23.976 and 59.94) and dropped the footage straight into Resolve for grading without a problem.
(You can see some clips here: .)

Although there is less guesswork involved (and it is therefore faster to grade) when the Raw controls are present, I would not let their absence stop you from shooting with the C200. Especially since there are some shots that you just can't get* without DPAF. (*Without the benefit of multiple takes, a focus puller, etc.)

Canon has released some video training series. Just watched it and finally understood how Resolve handles Cinema Raw Light files. DaVinci Resolve interprets it as CanonLog2 with Cinema Gamut for the best dynamic range. From there you can use Canon's own LUTs on the last node to transform to whatever you want i.e. CLog3 or Rec.709 or WDR. 1D LUTs for Gamma transform and 3D LUTs for full color transform.



I use this LUT from Canon on the last node for a neutral starting point. All adjustments have to be made before this LUT:
CinemaGamut.CanonLog2-to-BT709_WideDR_65_FF_Ver.1.1

The same to me, the only drawback (not mentioning shifting WB) is that if you unintentionally overexposed the image, you can't return it on a post the same way as with DNG files for example.

To be honest. I think CRM is very difficult to grade to a satisfying result. I've been trying every single route in Resolve from RCM, using the color transform fx, working with the canon luts, grading from scratch with curves and wheels...but I always end up with an image that is harsh, too sharp, aggressive video-like colors...for sure not cinematic! I'm starting to have doubts about this sensor, or is it because of the the raw file. I always liked the cinematic look from the c300, even the mark I in just 1080p, but I haven't seen anything spectacular from the c200 yet.

We really need to have full access to the debayer settings in particular sharpness...
Why nobody from BlackMagic is capable of giving a clear answer about what is happening???

No because resolve user get the software for free, hence i will not be surprised if they want deliberately to protect the hardware they sell.

have a client asking me about the c200, i downloaded the test raw files linked to above, opened in Resolve set to ACEScct, no IDT, 709 ODT... looks like a really decent starting point with the most minor of tweaks.. contrast and exposure only.. not seeing any issues with these admittdly well lit, well exposed shots.. does anyone have any crappy / underexposed / highlights clipped / rolling shutter kind of shots in canon raw to play with? i see no reason based on these three test shots to advise to avoid the camera....

In Response to Walter's comment, not everyone is using the free version of Resolve. I do think Blackmagic will ultimately support the C200 similar to how it supports other non-BM cameras' raw formats.

And Dermot, there's no denying you can get footage to look nice in Resolve, but that doesn't mean the format is supported. For a lot of our workflows we've come to rely on a color management system that relies on accurate transforms that are simply not possible right now with the limited information on what Resolve is doing with Canon's format.

Yes you can adjust both exposure and white balance in linear and post debayer. Yes you can take the flat image Resolve generates and use log controls to get it to look "good". But at the very least BM, tell us the gamma and gamut you're debayering these raw files to so we can objectively normalize the image.

Yup. I'm hoping that it is just incomplete right now and that those controls will be added in later betas (and eventually the release version).

Here is what the controls look like:

As Armen mentioned, the Color Temp, Tint, and Exposure controls are disabled. And, as you can see in the second photo, the White Balance drop-down only has one option: "As Shot". (This is the same with regular Canon raw .rmf files (tested with a C500 raw clip).)

That being said, the Resolve 15 release notes state "Support for Camera RAW controls for Canon RAW clips". Since they built out all of the controls and are touting this as a feature, I am expecting (and hoping) that these controls will be enabled by the stable release date.

P.S. Since Premiere's CRM implementation supports Color Temp, Tint, and Exposure adjustment, that seems to demonstrate that there is no technical reason why 3rd parties cannot implement those controls. (Before the April 2018 update of Premiere, only Canon's Cinema Raw Development software could control those settings.)

P.P.S. Cheers to the Blackmagic team for continuing to push the industry. Fusion integration looks amazing – I am amazed how your software team can integrate such complex software (Fusion and Fairlight) at such a rapid pace while maintaining such high performance. It may sound like I'm being obsequious, but I assure you it's genuine: as a developer myself, I get a headache just thinking about all of the hurdles involved (especially with the collaboration features)!

In v15b1 on Linux the .CRM files show as audio clips, with the music note icon. On Windows it can read them just fine. I have not tried these clips on v14 on Linux yet. Anyone else not able to open them as raw clips?

Unfortunately, still no Exposure, Color Temperature, and Tint controls for Canon Raw/Canon Raw Light in Beta 4. Hopefully these controls will be enabled by final release!

Resolve 15 Beta 5 now has the Color Temperature, Tint, and Exposure sliders enabled for Canon Raw clips!

No problems with my Cinema Raw Light clips (C200) but strange behavior (images becomes cyan only) when I attempt to change the color temp/tint with the C500 raw footage I have.

Thanks to the Blackmagic team for continuing to improve support for other manufacturers cameras!

This will be addressed with the next beta update.

Just as Rohit promised, C500 raw footage is working normally in Resolve 15 Studio Public Beta 6 – thank you very much!
