    Video level: Resolve to Media Composer


    I'm making the round trip from Resolve to Media Composer. My grading is done, exported an AAF in MXF Op-ATOM. Import the AAF in Media Composer, and everything works fine. My problem is with the video level.

    My export from Resolve has been done with the Video/Data Level at « Video 64-940 ».  Once in Media Composer, if I want my timeline to look like it was in Resolve, I need to change the « source settings » to:

    -       Source color space: REC 709

    -       Color Transformation: Levels scaling (video levels to full range)

    Without that, everything is, of course, more flat.

    Am I right to do that? Or is it just the way the "viewer" in MC display the image ?

    I need to provide a Quicktime for broadcast use and want to be shure I'm giving them the right thing. Thank you!

    Thank you!

    Re: Video level: Resolve to Media Composer

    It's just the viewer, your levels should be correct without the color transform. Right click the viewer and switch to full range in 'display colorspace'. That'll make the viewer display the media with full contrast. You can check the levels on the scopes in Media Composer in color correction mode.
