Hi everyone!
Just started prep for a S16 b/w film (I think it will be ORWO 54/UN 74)
For "no-budget" reasons it will be one light telecine for editing and than Arriscan 2k for selected takes.
Thinking of grading with DaVinci Resolve on my iMac Retina at home for the same budget reasons,than DCP mastering somewhere outsource.
Because of b/w the approach seems to have no problem in difference between monitor's REC 709 and DCI P3 color space of cinema projectors,but still have no idea of how the contrast and brightness will match.
If anybody has a similar experience could you please share your thoughts about it?
Thanx a lot

Get iOne display pro probe. Calibrate your display to gamma 2.2, brightness 80.

Uncheck apple color correction in the resolve settings.

When you make your DCP, tell them you graded rec709, data levels, gamma 2.2.

You should be good to go.

Thanx a lot,Bruce!
So the point is-I make a new color profile in the "calibrate monitor" manu,ajust gamma to 2.2 (The monitor has it already as a standart ajustment)and brightness to 80,using a color checker in a way,then I use the current profile while grading and tell the DCP guys my color space,gamma and brightness and that is it?

Well,got it)
And "uncheck apple color" means what? You cannot uncheck every setting,you have to select at least the first default "iMac"

Otherworldly, which profile should I choose for calibrating?
Sorry for my unconsciousness but I will do that for the first time)))

And one more question:
Am I to apply a particular b/w film stock LUT in DaVinci to get the correct image,or I should operate normally as I usually do with color materials-starting with flat scan?
