18.6.3 Breaks a Well Known Professional Color Workflow

PostSun Dec 03, 2023 3:50 pm

Anyone else notice that they changed how an un color managed workflow works in yrgb science? You used to be able to work with a timeline in Davinci WG/intermediate and select rec709 as an output. This workflow appears to display the color incorrectly by clamping down the saturation (see what it looks like with chromaticity scope). Someone in support said "slight changes between versions are to be expected". This is not a slight change, it's either completely broken or they changed how this works completely. If you've colored this way in previous versions and update a project to 18.6.3, the color will be very wrong. If I'm wrong, please speak up... Thanks

We're gonna need samples because I don't understand what you're saying.

I guess you are rephrasing your earlier post?

Running v18.6.3 on a 2019 Mac Pro, and I don't see any color problem here. I just cycled through a range of timeline and output color space settings in an unmanaged YRGB project, including the settings referenced by the OP, and there was zero change on my reference display and on scopes, same as in prior versions of Resolve.

Two posts about this but you have not provided an example of what your issue is.
I have not seen any change in the color management.

Post a vectorscope screen shot of "before" and "after," and then we could see the saturation levels changing. I'm not seeing it here using DWG/DI.
