Here is a short clip showing what my footage looks like pre and post processing.
My new adjusted picture control settings are:
I just set it to Neutral and then edit that profile further. But you can easily create a new custom profile (or setting).
As you can see in the after/before footage there is quite a bit more detail in the snow. This was lost when I increased the contrast. As I didn’t care about the detail in the snow, this wasn’t an issue. If I did care, I could have adjusted the overall contrast just before loosing the detail, and then created a mask over the areas I want to have more punch (not including the snow).
