LUTs as a %:

Having the ability to be able to change the % or opacity or a LUT as a layer vs directly 100% on a clip. Layering would also allow for layering of LUTs with other presets / filters. Yes, you can go back in and tweak the curves and levels, but then you are modifying the overall LUT vs the intensity of the LUT.

Changing the intensity would be beneficial for applying Log LUTs to 709 clips / Clips recorded in a non-flat picture style. This is key for trying to achieve a subtle film look.



Split tone to 3 Way Filter Color Corrector:

In addition to manual curve editing, having a 3 Way Filter Color Corrector to adjust Blacks, mid tones & Highlights. The split tone is not good enough. Needs to be 3 way as skin tones are in the mid level. Also having a color wheel vs slider would be nice.



Revert to original from a Preset: Ability to reset or undo a Preset. The arrow reset button does not un-apply a preset.

Presets s as a %: similar to % for LUTs.

What SDR said. 100%! Also, better/faster intergration with PDR and better use of GPU.

For these reasons and those SDR mentioned above and the PDR intergration clunkiness I am finding I am Color Correcting in Davinci Resolve a lot these days.

The ability to shift luma and chroma left/right/up/down to align better. Essential in tape restoration. already found in clunky freeware like VirtualDub. HP Envy Phoenix/4thGen i7-4770(4@3.4GHz~turbo>3.9)/Nvidia GTX 960(4GB)/16GB DDR3/7,200rpm/w10x64---

While the latest incarnation of ColorDirector is an improvement, we still NEED SCOPES, Waveform, Parade, Vectopr Scope I just want to edit and make pictures.

I always got my solution from this form. I don't need any more improvement.

I am frustrated with ColorDirector 6 for several reasons.

I have used CDR6 for motion-tracking, to eliminate, fade-out areas, or to create a green screen video.

1. Some of my already-masked areas become unmasked when I save the project, and then start again from the beginning, to "fine-tune" my mask. Extremely frustrating.

2. When I am in either frame-by-frame or auto motion tracking, CDR6 will suddenly grab some area, or lose some area, that to the eye is obviously wrong. If the eye can easily see the difference between areas, I would hope that CDR could come close.


3. CDR needs the ability to have sensitivity settings in Motion Tracking. Low sensitivity would be let it mask anything close to the desired area. High sensitivity would allow only a major change in color.

4. I would like to be able to specifically paint/mask an area, without CDR immediately grabbing some other spot.

5. Then I would like to be able to fine-tune the selected mask, to enlargen it, to shrink it, to feather it. All of the Photoshop selection tools.

6. In general, I find CDR6 in its present state, to be almost unusable for Motion Tracking. It simply is not smart enough, or fast enough.

Thanks,
Clark

Yes we still need them. And actually without them color grading is like shooting in the dark.

Also tracking need to be much more faster and reliable.

All the above posts are still requiredsurprised

.... it would be wounderful to be able to remain in PowerDirector with out having to wait for the app to reload to carry on working. The latest PD does have the ability to adjust certain parameters within the PD app so surely it must be possible to bring the whole CDR inside, out of the cold?

The ability to put a simple grad over a shot would also be a nice touch,. At the moment any attempt at making a grad effects the material underneath it!

CDR is getting better all the time.innocent

Cheers I just want to edit and make pictures.

Would be really useful when using LUTS to be able to review which LUT you've used OR even which Preset you've applied to your video clips in the timeline. While working in the timeline, you can see which Color adjustments you've made so why not with LUTS and Presets ?

SCOPES PLEASE

The ability to enter FULL ColourDirector mode with your enter timeline with out leaving PowerDirector would be a real boon.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE

Thank you I just want to edit and make pictures.
