i'm only asking for help on how to convert the Sekonic color meter "CC" index reading to apply to the Resolve "tint" slider value in the camera RAW section. (no mired/kelvin issues for this.. just the CC value and translating that value for post work) On p12 of the Sekonic manual paraphrased, each CC index number is multiplied by 2.5 to get a Color Correction filter number... OK, that's awesome... for knowing what CC gels to use on lights... ...but how does that meg/grn adjustment number relate to the +/- 150 value in many applications (lightroom/resolve) I would also like to know how to apply that same meg/grn measurement to shots in post too. Here's an example: hypothetical fumbled studio shoot. Tungsten lamps, checked/metered in advance, all good. Power goes out, comes back on an hour later. one of the bulbs is now dead and is replaced. In a rush and don't re-meter lights notice after the talent leaves that something is off with the key (fill bounced) re-meter, yup for some reason the new lamp shows a CC index value of G2 (previous bulb was 0 on the Sekonic C-500) Write down the value... Fast Forward I am now sitting in front of Resolve and looking at the "tint" slider in camera raw window on the "color" tab. what do i set the slider to... +5 -5 +2 -2 .... or something completely different? Please explain in detail. Thank You so much in advance, I have given myself a headache from googling and re-reading manuals =)
I just recently purchased a Sekonic C-500 color meter in order to know how much CTO, CTB or +/- Green to add to lights to match different environments. I'm wondering how to directly interpret the readings of the meter into the most common denotation of gel strengths - i.e. 1/8,1/4, 1/2 and Full (Color). I can figure out Kelvin with some quick math but where do you find what strength of +/- green to use? The meter reads 0-50 Magenta and 0-50 Green. Also the readings in digital mode are very different than in film mode. For example a reading in digital mode of CC filter 5M will be CC filter 25M in film mode. Anyone using this meter that could lend me some incite?
