Resolve allows Tony to turn the LUT node on and off on demand, which is used if he has a stock shot, title card or main title sequence that is already linear. The same goes for the dailies’ CDLs, which D’Amore can use as a starting point or transition to Log-C if he decides to go in a different direction and needs the latitude of the original footage.

“The ability to work from either color corrected dailies or camera original LOG material at the click of a node gives me extreme versatility and saves time and effort,” said D’Amore. “In the past, I would have to drag in an offline cassette and queue up and switch the tape, having to look at it before cutting back. With Resolve, in one click I can mute the node and see it without the dailies’ CDL if need be. It’s simple, but extremely effective. Being able to see everything Ron saw during production provides a dialogue when conforming.”
