Cinelog-C for Adobe Camera Raw update
Cinelog-C for Adobe Camera Raw now renamed Cinelog-C DCP 2016 contains all new wide gamut log camera profiles for nearly 70 digital DSLR, Mirrorless and Cinema cameras from AJA, Canon, IndiCam and Blackmagic Design to Nikon, Panasonic, PhaseOne, Sony and DJI - all inside Adobe Camera Raw!
Each new profile is calculated to produce images in Cinelog-C colorspace inside Adobe Camera Raw without requiring the additional OpenColorIO conversion of previous versions.
Images debayered into Cinelog-C colorspace can now be opened directly in Lightroom and Photoshop, there is one less step required when transcoding to log in After Effects and Cinelog luts can now be applied directly without an intermediate colorspace conversion.
Cinelog-C DCP 2016 profiles are also lighter and faster with each camera profile featuring Cinelog custom matrices and Cineon tone curve. HSV corrections are no longer used meaning the profile does not compromise image quality, color or dynamic range.
Converting with Cinelog-C profiles produces cleaner and more accurate color without the possibility of artifacts that can be caused by non-linear corrections in typical DCP camera profiles.
Cinelog-C's ACR log curve has also been tweaked to match Cineon log, common in color grading and compositing apps such as DaVinci Resolve, Baselight, Nuke, Scratch etc making ACR a perfect tool for fixing those tricky shots or for working with larger raw images at full resolution that may otherwise be restricted in other color grading apps.
To accompany the new Cinelog-C Profiles, we are also releasing a new OpenColorIO configuration featuring many new colorspaces (including the new Blackmagic Design RGB colorspaces* and support for ACES 2065-1) plus updated Rec709 default looks and several default film simulations and emulations (CDL and 3D cube formats) that can be accessed directly in the OpenColorIO plugin without needing to load external luts.
*BMD Film colorspaces are unpublished. Cinelog has accurately reverse engineered all current BMD Film colorspaces offered in Resolve v12.5beta.
