I'm in post on a documentary I've been working on for quite some time. It's a feature, shot entirely on S16mm black and white (Orwo 400 ASA pushed 2 stops), and scanned in 4K to dpx files.
I'm debating just how I want to grade this footage for the final edit. Now if it was HD or color footage, I'd go DaVinci all the way, but since I'm dealing with black and white film, which I've intentionally shot to be grainy and contrasty, does DaVinci really offer any advantages over Premiere? I come from a photographic background as well and really favor doing luma curves within the lumetri filter, and have been very satisfied with the results. But of course, if DaVinci offers some distinct advantages qualitatively over premiere, I want to take that into consideration.
What say you all? Should I grade my BW in DaVinci, or am I good to stick with Premiere?
