Colourlab Ai – Working In A Color Managed Workflow

February 7, 2022

In Part 3 of this series, Jason Bowdach demonstrates how to use Colourlab Ai in a color-managed workflow in Resolve and shows new features.


Part 3: Working within ACES and RCM color management

The 3rd-part in this insight series on Colourlab Ai takes the workflow(s) and functionality demonstrated in parts 1 and 2 and illustrates how you can utilize them within a color-managed pipeline. The key component of this workflow is replacing Colourlab’s IDT LUT, to apply the proper transform within your DaVinci Resolve node tree.

At the start of this Insight, I also take a few minutes to catch us up on a few new features that were introduced since Part 2 of this series.

Learning Goals

By the end of this Insight you should have a good grasp of:

  • The new test patterns feature that helps you evaluate your image pipeline
  • How to properly set up Resolve and Colourlab Ai so your images match between the two apps
  • Why you need to switch the Colourlab IDT LUT in Resolve or you’ll get unexpected results

Question and Comments

I plan on keeping you up-to-date as Colourlab matures. If you have questions you’d like me to answer or workflows to test, be sure to use the Comments!

Have you tried using Colourlab yourself? How did it go? I’m curious about the experience that Mixing Light members have had with this still-new solution.
