I occasionally burn in a LUT to a monitor/recorder (if I have time and have a post plan) so that there’s at least a reference image in proxies, but only if I’m happy with the camera log/raw footage being the only copy in that format.

I would like to know how many users here burn in their LUTs in this way. I am so used to delivering Log in scenes with a high dynamic range to protect myself. Do some here always burn it in?
That video is not suggesting you burn in the LUT. Indeed, the Odyssey does not even have the option to do that. The LUT is used for monitoring only. I did another video for CD showing how to apply the print-down LUTs in Resolve.

Regarding my comments about picture rendering, that is not something either a DP or a colourist really needs to concern themselves with an any practical way. I was just pointing out that screen contrast and scene contrast don't relate directly in the way Alistair was suggesting. It is a small insight into the colour science of what is happening in a camera LUT. But in practical terms you don't really need to know why. You just use ACES, or a manufacturer's LUT, or just grade until it "looks right"!
