I am trying to get in the habit of exposing to the right with my 5D Mark III raw footage. But how far to the right? Below is a contact sheet made up of screen grabs I've taken in Resolve from untouched DNGs. I set the exposure for the first image using the false color function on my SmallHD monitor (which works great for exposing H264/AVCHD footage, but here it actually looks quite underexposed) and then I upped the exposure in one stop increments. I am hoping that someone more experienced with raw footage than I can give me an idea of which of these would contain the most recoverable data (click to enlarge image):
YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vwgSWqdbniM Vimeo (downloadable): https://vimeo.com/67472338 First part used an LED light on camera; last part is ambient light. Workflow: raw2dng => DNGs to ACR+AE => rendered as 175Mbps 10-bit 422 DNxHD MOV => edited in Premiere Pro CS6. AE CS6 Render Settings / Render Depth set to 16-bit and Output Module / Depth set to Trillions of colors (to make sure DNxHD was getting >= 10 bit color). 12-Core MacPro (running Win7x64) renders DNG to DNxHD at ~6FPS. Komputerbay 32GB 1000X (supports 1920x1080). Have 2 64GB 1000X on order. 128GB 1000X can only support 1920x900; was going to return it however Amazon offered a very generous discount to keep it (useful enough to keep).
