I've just stumbled into some new territory as of late. And I don't really understand certain workflow implications dealing with film-type workflow. So please hold my hand and speak really slow. I'm working on a music video thats been shot on the RED-one camera. My understanding is the RED shoots 12-bit linear. Now the footage that comes is RAW so you have to view it through a lut. Keep in mind we are kind of learning these workflow details as we go. The guys I'm working with gave me the footage as 12-bit DPX files out of a Scratch system. Now they were viewing the footage in Scratch through a HD Rec-709 lut, I pulled up the DPX later on in front of one of the guys in After Effects and the footage looked really dark. He thought something was wrong on the export (ie. something got applied to the footage on export). So I poked around in AE and found HD Rec-709 project settings and applied them and then the footage seemed to be correct. Now is this correct?? I'm pretty new to the idea of luts (I usually just deal with video, NTSC, HD) so am I right path?? Also when I give the composites back should I render out DPXs with any special settings or is there a better way. And I've got some Maya work to do on it so how exactly does this workflow fit into that. Ya I know, I've stepped into some deep mess.
