Camcorders that record in
.mp4) files usually split recorded files according to some maximum time limit per clip. For example, after recording straight for 30 minutes, we might find the entire stretch split into 3 separate clips because of a maximum limit of 10 minutes per clip.
Let's say all three of these clips belong to the same scene, and are only disjoint in file structure. In other words, they should be color graded identically. Should color grading be performed on each of the raw clips separately with the same template, or should the clips be merged into one
.mts file first on which color grading should be performed once?
