There have been a few suggestions in various threads on DF that DaVinci Resolve is good for color correction. I have had pretty good success with avisynth and VirtualDub
on most of my video clips, but there are a few clips I can't seem to get the color to come out the way it should be.
I just installed the free version of DaVinci Resolve 15 on a Win 10 based laptop. Resolve is up and running without crashing, but I am unable to get it to recognize my videos. I have tried a couple of different avi videos. The first video is originally from a highly butchered and compressed film capture that is now stored as a Lagarith YUV 4:2:0 video. The second video is straight from a VHS capture that MediaInfo shows as "YUV 4:2:2 as for UYVY but with different component ordering within the u_int32 macropixel". This came from a USB 600 capture device.
Seems like the video formats need to be changed for Resolve--true? The Blackmagic forum had very little information on videos compressed with something like Lagarith. What there was seemed to indicate a conversion is needed and software from HDCinematics would be good to use. HDCinematics software seems like a frontend for ffmpeg.
Anyone have success usiing Resolve with avi-based lossless videos?
