I am trying to determine which color profile I used in some raw video clips from about 7 months ago. Does anyone know if any of the video settings information is stored in the logs files?

I usually use D-cinelike now but for a while I was using D-log. I want to make sure I am using the most correct LUT for the color profile I used.

I have the same question. Based on the response to your question since January, the answer is "Take notes"

The colorprofile is stored in the meta-data of your recorded clip. Perhaps opening the clip in a hex-editor will show the metadata as something readable. Otherwise FinalCut Pro detects the colorprofile from the metadata stored in the clip so yes you should be able to get that information.
