It will be easier to match with the actual BM lineup. Is it possible for BM to upgrade the color science as they already did in the past for this camera ?

Since I am using the UM4.6K as a B-Camera with the G2 in ProRes shooting mode it would be absolutely fantastic if they could get CS4 on to it to make color matching that much easier. Especially if I have to just hand off the footage to a client for them to do the post work.

With CinemaDNG you can choose CS4 in the RAW tab of Resolve. However, it would be nicer to be able to have it natively next in CS4.

Is it possible to propose this update to BM ? Captain Cook ? The color science v4 should be easy and painless to integrate and will be very helpfull obviously...

Yes, I think it would be possible. I would even donate some money to Blackmagic so they can implement this...

What's new in Blackmagic RAW 1.6.1

Added Blackmagic URSA Broadcast support.

I think it's a dead end

Hi, i have original UM 4.6k and pro G1. I would like to shoot both in prores in multicam. As we cant have color science v4 on old 4.6K the question is if there is any way to have old color science v3 on PRO G1? Was sc v4 on PRO G1 introduced via some firmware update or was there from the beginning? Is it any way to downgrade pro G1 from sc v4 to sc v3? Thanks!

CS4 was added in a firmware update. Honestly the original 4.6K could easily have that same CS4 update. However, it’s looking like it won’t happen. It’s a bummer. I just grade the original 4.6K to match the UMPG2 when I do multi-camera shoots with them.

So maybe some solution would be just downgrade PRO G1 to firmware pre-CS change...


I started the project which contains a lot of green screen multicam work. I realised that cs V3 is better for this than v4, i mean green color is just more green while skintones looks nice in both versions. I am not very good colorist and i had some difficulties in grading both color sciences to match perfectly...

EDIT: firmware 6.0 introduced cs v4 to pro g1. So downgrading to 5.something should bring v3 back...
unfortunatelly it will loose braw.... But theoretically it should make prores to look the same in 4.6k non pro and pro g1...

And you can always revert to the latest firmware when your project is complete.
