Which do you prefer?


#1

Hi, I’ve put the same piece of video through 2 different processes and I’d love to know your views on which looks better. I know that’s subjective but hey ho.

First up, this one is completely unedited and lifted straight from the Mavic Air

Next, is the exact same footage but with a LUT added in Davinci resolve…

  • Straight from the drone
  • With the LUT

I voted ‘Straight from the drone’.

The second video is too colourful. Autumn simply isn’t that colourful :blush:

If was watching that on a tv, I’d want to turn the contrast down (if that makes sense).

You’re right though, it is indeed very subjective :slight_smile:


#3

I voted the LUT version.

I quite like the contrast. If anything maybe its a little oversaturated but my preference from the 2.


#4

With the lut for me what setting did you film with Normal or Dlog?


#5

All in normal. My laptop isn’t blessed with ram so I generally just leave footage as it is. When I tried d-cinelike I then have to colour it too which really slows the process even more.

I do think I’ll knock the saturation down a touch though


#6

first one keeps showing an error playing on computer
second one plays both play on phone


#7

I voted for straight from cam, there didn’t appear to me to be enough of a difference to be worth it.


#8

LUT for me, more colourful, sometimes I like BLING :grinning:


#9

You’ve all voted to give me pain in the ass editing then!


#10

Well, you did ask :smirk:

When they’re small embedded videos the darks in the LUT one seem to blend together and the trees seem to lose some definition.

However, once they were playing full screen I much preferred the one with the LUT.

Of course, I’m half blind so I wouldn’t listen to me on this one :wink:
