    • How do you set exposure for video?
      If you are experienced with still photography shooting full manual for exposure should not be a problem in most situations.  I learned how to shoot stills on a full manual FILM camera.  High quality full auto stills cameras for the masses are a relatively new phenomenon.  Autofocus is definitely a time saver particularly on modern lenses which are terrible for manual focusing.  But exposure?  Heck when I shoot film nowadays I actually use a hand meter almost 100% of the time!  I use an incident hand meter and it gets me where I need to be most of the time.  My dream is to be able to use a spot meter like Ansel Adams and really dial in my exposure but again I don't have the skill level. My film cameras have built in filters but with black and white film you use yellow, orange, red, and green filters and of course polarizers so who knows what the meter is reading.  I have to use a handheld meter and then take the number the meter gives me in stops and do a mental adjustment for the whatever filters are on the lens and then translate that result into a aperture and shutter speed.  If someone really knows what they are doing with a DSLR and says using it in full manual exposure is a pain I submit to you they don't know what they are doing.
    • Youtube audio copyright claims too often
      Obviously if you want the name removed from my posting I have no objection, I am just trying to help not to give you any headaches.  However after some time the owner/administrator of this form no longer allows any updates.  I would contact the administrator and ask him to update my posting, I certainly have no objection to that. Audioblocks is a site with content "by artists for artists".  Unless the artist actually sells the rights audioblocks merely licenses to sub license the content.  That means the original owner is still the rights holder. Audioblocks explains here the process and the preferred way of handling it.  Instead of disputing the claim they prefer you take an alternate road: http://blog.audioblocks.com/how-to/youtube-content-id-claims-stock-music-happens/ That is not unusual, for instance AdRev has a similar mechanism. YouTube does not remove footage by themselves, they are instructed by the rights holder if they issue a take down request.  However you have the right to dispute it but at that point it becomes a serious matter.  If you are sure you are correct and the claimant is wrong you should dispute the take down and YouTube must reinstate the video unless the owner sues you within a given time frame.  If they do not your video will be back and your strike will be removed.  I have disputed claims before on historical recordings where Content ID was misidentified but it never came to a point of suing.  The rights holder is required before they issue a take down to have a real person listen and verify if the claim is valid and always the issue was resolved.  
    • The Bolex-Anamorphot 16/32/1.5x thread
      I have a Bolex Moller 16/32/1.5x for sale together with a special clamp from rapidotechnology. It's performs great with edge to edge sharpness and I bought it only recently but surprisingly my new 1.5x lens which I made from a Rectimascop 48/2x front part and the rear element of a Schneider Cinelux 2x delivers very similar results (except the very far edges). Anyway, here is the link to the ebay auction: http://www.ebay.de/itm/RARE-Moeller-Moller-16-32-1-5x-Anamorphot-Anamorphic-Cinemascope-/272477606381   I can also add a 72mm filter adapter in order to mount a Rectilux CoreDNA to the front Another thing is that I plan to offer my anamorphic attachements and taking lenses as rental items but now I'm a little afraid to rent such an expensive lens out. The Bolex also doesn't work well with my longer Lomo OKC 75mm taking lens (while it works nicely with the 50 mm OKC 1-50-1). The lomo lenses have PL mounts and are intended to be my main rental taking lenses as they could be used with an Arri Alexa in LCS mount. The Bolex seems to work really well with the Nikon 85mm f1.8 as longer lens, though: https://www.flickr.com/search/?text=16%2F32%2F1.5x%20Bolex  
    • Zhiyun Crane Users Please Share Your Videos (jitter issue)
      I think the gyro on the tilt is bad.  It doesn't know that the pitch has changed, so it's just using the power to hold it's current position.  Have you tried knocking the motor gently with your knuckles?  I do that when the gyro on my smartphones get stuck.  I've never seen it on a gimbal.
    • Premiere CC 2017 proxy workflow is amaaaazing
      The troll would be me, fanning resentments in a Premiere jubilation thread, but anyway. Yes, and they always look exactly how everybody thinks creatives look like. Very funny. Reminds me of Matrix, the roughly crocheted woolen shirts and the designer sunglasses at night. Someone really should analyze the target groups.  FCP X is buggy too. Visit the fcp.co forum. There was an update already to 10.3, fixing four or five of the worst bugs.  The shareholders dictate that. I like Adobe, but find them very conservative. They care about their pro clients, that's true. They are afraid to make too radical changes. Therefore, they just keep adding features and overhauling the old routines. Okay for Photoshop and After Effects, I use both. When I watch my buddy edit in Premiere (I knew it well up to CS5.5), I can't help thinking, why is this whole process such a mess? Why can't they kill all this redundancy?
