Importing SLOG3 into FCPX

This may be a simple answer, but for some reason when I import Footage from my F55 into FCPX it adds a Rec709 LUT to it, but in camera it shows as SLOG3.  I am recording in CineEI mode with SLOG3 Cine.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Importing SLOG3 into FCPX

This probably isn't what you want to hear, but if youre going to shoot S-LOG, you really owe it to yourself and your clients to grade it in Resolve, Baselight, or some other dedicated color grading application.  That's my suggestion.

Re: Importing SLOG3 into FCPX

Which version are you on?  The 10.3 update (or so I've read) now uses metadata on some log footage... check the inspector tab under "processing" - to see if it's there.  If so, you can simply change this to "none" and then grade using a third party app in FCPX - or round-trip thru Resolve as Doug suggests.

To be fair Doug, Thaddeus never said he was grading or finishing in FCPX, just that he didn't want it to be stuck with a rec709 look applied at that point in the chain.

Re: Importing SLOG3 into FCPX

Yeah I didn't plan on grading in FCPX, but when I import SLOG3 footage into FCPX 10.3 it has a Rec709 LUT applied to it and I can't seem to figure out where it got that information because it was not from the camera.  I did not apply a LUT in camera and so I am a bit confused how it is doing this.

Re: Importing SLOG3 into FCPX

Now even after I have gone into the Info tab and tried to find where the LUT would be I still couldn't find it.  I also wish that Resolve could import a multicam clip as most of my interviews are that way and I don't want to have to break it down after edit just to color in resolve.

Re: Importing SLOG3 into FCPX

in the event viewer or on the timeline, select the clip(s) you imported shot using log.

With the inspector tab open - go to the "Info tab" (next to the video and / or audio tab).  There will be several drop down boxes here - one of which is "Log Processing".  Make sure you have chosen "none" here.

 

Clips should then appear as you shot them in log.

Re: Importing SLOG3 into FCPX

Highlight a clip in project. In the inspector- at the bottom you have the metadata view tab - should say basic as default I think.
Click on Settings in the DOP down menu and you should get the Log processing option - click it to None.
Let me know if that does the job.

Re: Importing SLOG3 into FCPX

Thank you all for your help here.  Here is where the problem was.  I am editing interviews that were all mulitclip sequences and in the INFO tab in FCPX 10.3 nothing comes up.  I double click on the multicam sequence and went into each clip and saw under SETTINGS that was where I could remove the LUT that t was associated with.

 

Appreciate all the info and help!!
