Hi, I'm testing some footage coming from a Viper filmstream camera trying to compare the images coming out from a OB1 4:4:4 device, which records in DPX files, with some 4:2:2 footage coming from a P2 AVCINTRA100 recorder.
I exposed a grey card and colour charts so to expose the grey pont to 50% IRE using an astro waveform monitor with different settings so to check the latitude and colour rendering of the two capture formats, and imported all the footage into final cut, the DPX files were transformed into TIFF so to be able to import the material into the timeline.
The problem I'm finding is that I no clip seems to be properly exposed if I check the final cut waveform, all clips are around 50% but with some deviations... I'm pretty sure I exposed all the clips properly and don't understand those exposure shifts...
