Color Correction won't render out

PostThu Nov 08, 2018 7:37 pm

Hi there,

I am new in da Vinci Resolve 15 (free version) and wanted to test a workflow with footage shot with the sony fs7 (XAVCIntra) with Slog3. I was really pleased how the color correction looks in Da Vinci (See attached Screenshot: Look_in_Da_Vinci_01).

But when I want to render it out (Quicktime ProRes, or h.264), the picture looks completely different as if the Color Correction would not have been applied (See attached Screenshot: Look_rendered_Picture_02).

Has anyone an idea why this is? Did I miss to set an output-node or something?
Thanks for comments.

Is it possible you have set a Video Monitor LUT in your project preferences? If yes, unselect it there and select the same LUT as an Output LUT. Then it will render out.

If that's not it, can you post a screenshot of your node tree and the deliver settings?

In Resolve Preferences - System - Configuration, uncheck "Use Mac Display Color Profile for Viewers", save the prefs, restart Resolve.

Regrade your image as desired and render it out again. Now are they closer?
