    You'll be fine there; the in is the same as the out and timeline (no transform). Here are the defaults (or can set to 'DaVinci YRGB', and Rec709 2.4 Timeline):

     
    Here's something I put together in Premiere with 'Soft' and the luma sliders (under color wheels:

    There are several variables that combine in skintone; color separation, saturation model, skin color, light color spectrum, white balance, lens coloration.
    Color Separation: Good cameras have color separation. Less ideal color science will have 'accordioned' hues, compressing and expanding arbitrarily throughout the hue circle. For skintone - under quality light, the Alexa will have great separation between the pink aspects of the face (lips, blush) and skintone, which rides the line between too green and too magenta under flat spectrum light
    Saturation Model: Photometric saturation models (like Alexa LogC+R709 or EC LogC+R709) have less saturation (the video model). Saturation amplifies hue difference, and photometric models can make skin tones seem more alike. The EC variations emphasize saturation (film backend), which foregrounds skin hue
    Skin Color: The skin of the talent may be slightly more olive (dark and yellow in hue) or pale with pink as the primary hue accent (all vary towards magenta with emotion). Here is a recent still from the film I've been shooting, with two people in the same frame that had divergent skin hues:

    Light Color Spectrum: On the Alexa (and cameras generally), filming under light that has a spikey color spectum (Leds, Flos, Sodium Vapor, etc.) can cast skintone distinctly to green or magenta, even with correct -
    White Balance: A fully neutral WB is vital for EC, not only in skintone, but the whole of color space accuracy. Skintone is one of the reliable indicators that WB might be off on the green/magenta axis when under reference light without a white card reference (should anchor on the skintone line of the Vectorscope under sunlight and halogen). A common occurrence is that WB will be set for direct sun on the GH5 (possibly with the WB sun preset), and then the shoot will move into the shade, which will shift the WB towards blue/magenta (needs a new WB, or correction in post ahead of the conversion)
    Lens Coloration: Interrelated with WB is lens coloration, which is like a WB that variably shifts throughout the grayscale [For EC: it is optimal to WB around middle gray, or a little brighter for the most salient part of the image]. This can vary from minimal coloration (Sigma 18-35) to heavy coloration (for example, Xeens). For NDs - the reference EC ND is the Firecrest FSND, which evenly cuts the full spectrum (visible/invisible). Non FSNDs (even IRNDs) will have a varying ratio between IR/UV and visible, which can unpredictably shift sensor response to a given light (interacting with the camera sensor's native cut). Variable IR ratio particularly acts on the green/magenta axis
    Notably, EC Tungsten does have a slight magenta bias in the skintone region towards magenta compared to the Alexa. I've figured out what in the data was causing this problem (IR leak every third exposure slice), and this will be solved for the next release.

    Very cool, they will be very pleased. Do you have any work online?

    Hello!
    I have new stills from a recent shot I was DPing. It's another theme, Kinda of game of thrones thing 😉. I think this is a good point of reference to see how color look in this type of forest/swamp with those costumes and production design. Here i used some old vintage Takumar lenses because of the organic look they have, i think they help to sell the fantasy theme.
    I use the same procedure I always do, and my style of grade using GHa Daylight to LogC. And diffusion LOT of diffusion!

    I will try answer you both. I think that to make it realistic it all came down to "order of operation". If you add a diffusion fx in post, make it to be in the very first step of the chain, or at least after the WB/exposure corrections. The grading, look and fxs have to come after that. 
    raw footage ▶️ Diffusion ▶️ corrections ▶️ secondary corrections ▶️ grading/look/ mastering

    Tiffen has it's Dfx plugins witch are really nice, but i also use the Red Giant Looks diffusion, those look great also. Oh! and make sure you are working on 32bit color space.
    Thanks!
    Yes. I use the Viltrox EF-m2 its way cheaper. Also, it's a tiny bit softer than the Metabones, but for my taste it helps to reduce the super sharpness of Panasonic cameras.

    Love the push is Nikon doing for this 2019... Raw Hdmi output, more body for different budgets.
    The only thing that is weird for me is the D5700. Imho i't does't make much sense to launch a new "DSLR" style for the lower market, because in general the entry level user looks for the more "practical" features and easy to use. New shooters are in general younger people, and they come from using their phones or some type of hybrid camera. I Think they should aim to a Aps-c mirrorless like the m50, cheap but more prosumer and better build. The DSLR market are more the old professionals, the people with experience that still like the mirror system.
    i don't know, is the way i see it.

    Didn't see too many GH5s examples in here. I went back to an old project and used the Cine-D to V-Log pre and then applied the GHa Daylight V3 in DaVinci Resolve. It worked out better than I thought it would. I'll be shooting more V-Log L in the future with this LUT in mind to test it out. Shot in 4K UHD with Contax Zeiss lenses and a Zhongyi Lens Turbo 2.

    I know the forum is mainly driven by lusting after gear and pixel peeping but if you should ever have the time and motivation, I would love to see a "behind the scenes" thread from you where you tell more about your process (without hijacking this one). Planning, shooting, post. I think your videos are some of the best I've ever seen by a participant of this forum.
