In Resolve 14: Where is Use Mac Display Color profile?

PostFri Sep 22, 2017 12:15 am

Urgently please....Simply so,

Where is the option: "Use Mac Display Color profile for viewers' (in Color Management) in Resolve 14?
or the equivalent?


It used to be in Project Settings > Color Management > "Use Mac Display Color profile for viewers' (in Color Managment) but no where to be found

In previous version i used to tick this off so i get a true representation of my grading/contrast as when i output. It was a known issue for Mac users that this had to be ticked off so as the in Resolve the picture of grade would be exact same to the shots when it gets exported.

I'm currently having the same issue in Resolve 14. The picture in the viewer is showing more darker/contrast than it actually is. I know that from looking/reading the Parade & also from looking at the outputted shot out of resolve (it'slighter)

Kindly please if anyone can get back to me soonest

Found it

But it seems not to have solved the issue fully.

There exported clip is still slighltly higher in contrast than the image shown in Resolve (vice-versa)

Any solutions?..... {huff}

The display on the Mac is only getting close at best.
If you need proper monitoring, buy proper monitoring. It has been discussed around here a thousand times: an I/O device by BM and a calibrated monitor!

Read pp. 660-661 of the Resolve 14 manual: "Limitations When Grading With the Viewer on a Computer Display." This goes into some detail why you cannot accurately monitor directly from the computer and operating system. You have to have a color-managed output, like one from a Blackmagic display card, preferably on a calibrated Rec709 display.

if you really read this section carefully, you will apprehend, that it mostly speaks about actual limitations of davinci resolve. but that doesn't imply, that things can't be done better! more accurate/satisfaying color rendition on computer screens are a very common feature of almost any similar product.

Can someone explain why a calibrated monitor would help in this situation? I understand the point of a calibrated monitor to ensure accurate color between devices (kind of a global or "real" check). However, this seems to be an issue where an export appears different on the same monitor. Are you saying that OP's render, which seems to look different on the same iMac screen would look identical if he had graded and viewed the render on a calibrated monitor?

Why would this be so?
