For an upcoming project, I am considering the C300 MkII. Since we are on a
tight budget (as always) with a fair amount of VFX work, ACES is appealing
for a smooth interchange in post. We would be looking at internal recording
rather than an external raw recorder, again for budgetary reasons.
From the research I’ve done, the C300 MkII can output ACESproxy10 data via
its SDI terminals but the RRT and ODT seems to be the responsibility of the
downstream consumers. We likely won’t be able to have afford a DIT on set
to live grade or have Canon’s reference monitor.
What is the best way to preview the RRT and ODT on set? My first instinct
is to look at a lutbox such as the Terradek Colr and roll a lut that takes
ACESproxy10 in and applies the RRT and ODT. Are there any other options?
Sony seems to offer both ACESproxy10 and an (ACESproxy10 + RRT + Rec709
