My wife and I have a MeetUp group called Charm City DSLR Film Makers. See us in Baltimore, NYC, DC, and of course Los Angeles.
how much tweaking did you have to do from the log to the req709 to make skin tones any other colors look good, before film convert that is.
If you apply a rec709 lut you can also drop down the gain in the key panel to reduce its affect. The gain adjustment acts as an opacity slider on a layer in photoshop.
