False Color Showing Log, correct?

Mon Jan 14, 2019 2:52 am

When I am viewing Rec709 in the eyepiece and I turn on false color, the values being shown are of the Log image and NOT the 709 image, correct?

I am shooting on an Alexa Classic.

Hello Brian,
The false color exposure check in ALEXA Classic cameras is based on the color processing set for the respective output signal path. So if you have the viewfinder set to Rec 709, the false color exposure check in the viewfinder will be based on the Rec 709 image. If you have the MON OUT at the same time set to Log C, the false color exposure check for MON OUT will be based on Log C.

With the ALEXA LF, ALEXA Mini and AMIRA cameras you can choose if the false color exposure check should be Monitoring-based or Log C-based.
To set this in the ALEXA LF go to: MENU>MONITORING>False color mode
To set this in the AMIRA and ALEXA Mini go to: MENU>MONITORING>EXPOSURE TOOLS>False color mode

Best regards,
Fred
