I have been loving my mavic air after having it for a week or two, but one thing that I am having trouble with is the color grading.

I learnt to shoot in D-Cinelike, with a really soft picture profile, Something like 0, -2, -3.

Problem is, when I go to color grade, which I thought would be great using those recommended settings, I can't find the right settings.

This is RAW Footage. Super flat and Super hard to colour grade.

73084

Can anyone help me? Where should I start? Thanks!


EDIT - I have tried numerous LUT's - no luck. They in fact make it look worse. Super dark.

Cheers!

For colour grading, Davinci Resolve is about the best you can get (and it has a free version that will do about anything you want it to). Only down size is it requires a bit of computing power. As for recording profiles, I started with D-cinelike and 0, -2, -3 like you and quickly abandoned it. I switched to 0,0,-1 and have been happy with what comes out. The footage looks good even out of the box and doesn't need much work in post if you want to color grade it.
