Cine Plus Delivers HDR with Resolve

Berlin post house Cine Plus has completed its first high dynamic range grade in DaVinci Resolve Studio for German national broadcaster ARD’s feature length thriller, “Sanft Schläft der Tod.”

The senior colorist on the thriller produced by ndF Berlin GmbH was Walter Just, who used ACES color management and a LUT for the feature’s HDR conversion, including an HDR1000 to 2,4 Gamma and Rec. 2020 to Rec. 709 transformation.

From the start, Blackmagic Design's DaVinci Resolve Studio was critical to Cine Plus’ workflow according to Just. “It has excellent support for new HDR delivery profiles. Resolve also allowed for cache free handling of the 4K rushes. This meant that on a high performance Linux system, we could play back fully debayered RAW complete with a denoise filter applied, all in real time.”
