    Posted: 27 August 2020 at 04:55
So, can anyone suggest a simple and quick to learn video editing software system that can handle the colour grading tasks associated with Sony's Slog-2 or Slog-3 camera recordings.

My dated, consumer level (Vegas movie studio) doesn't, and I don't want to spend the big bucks or time on a complex system that does colour-grading. Something sweet and simple would be nice...

TIA- B

If you want sweet and simple, why deal with colourgrading at all?

Ideally, to get the improved dynamic range and colours in clip-quality.
But if itís going to take more than say 5 minutes to grade the clips then yeah, Iíd be looking at baking in the gamma values etc into the camera.

Not a lot of video people here it seems. Found these videos by Jeven Dovey that were quite interesting:
Cinematic color grading for beginners
color correction for beginners
The first one explains how to get a basic picture. Should be possible with Vegas Movie Studio (which version btw?)

Those videos are pretty good- thanks!

Iím still on Vegas 15. Itís pretty cumbersome dealing with colours.
Got to say Iím seriously considering the basic DaVinci Resolve 16 instead. Given itís free that is quite an appealing draw card.

Itís a shame thereís not more interest in the video side of things here.

I actually use DaVinci Resolve 16. It is a remarkable piece of software for grading, editing and all sorts of other video stuff. The free version should do the job fine but if you get into it I highly recommend the paid version. It's absolutely amazing what it can do. The node system can be quite confusing at first but after a few youtube tutorials it starts making sense.
There's no such thing as too many lenses.

Thanks- I've downloaded it and have started looking at their videos. They seem really good at explaining things.

I am dealing with the same problem here. Just want the same results as from my photo raw files, and cant achieve that. I have found some so-so LUTs for download and used them, but it is never what I want exactly.

Log is not RAW, it just is a flat profile that gives some more latitude in post.

This Gerald Undone video explains why you cannot quickly grade your Slog videos. He has a lot of good videos on this subject.
