    • It definitely isn't the same as a lens effect! (and some of those shoots are using top class lenses, hundreds of thousands of dollars worth) And yeah, I'm mostly just glancing at the monitors, but yeah some of them I get to see months/years later at the premiere. (like I went to a premiere last night, although I can't recall what was the setup! If fog was even used? Heck, and I was on that film's lighting crew too! Probably was used? I dunno, the filming was a couple of years ago)  
    • That's great news regarding the AF, hopefully it will be at least as good as it was on the video side before they ballsed it up in firmware 3
    • Pi 4 is only about half price to a Nano and the Nano seem to have nv encoder/decoder in HW and it has an M.2 slot from what I read.(although can't seem to find it in pics) I think someone is poking around with getting OBS running on one too. Maybe I can use one for another project, need something to replace Qlab since the only mac mini we have left won't live forever.
    • Lets get the negatives out of the way. The file management restrictions of iOS (which were beyond LumaTouch's control) were a major hassle but that has by and large now been addressed with the release of iPadOS. Another drawback, which again is beyond their control, is that there is no support for ProRes. This may not be an issue for many users but it does rule out being able to use it even with any non-RAW footage from the BM cameras without transcoding so it is something to bear in mind. Ditto if you're using an Atomos etc as the recording medium for a DSLR/Mirrorless. The restriction to one LUT isn't great if you're using LOG or any flat profile that requires a corrective LUT as you then can't add a "creative" LUT on top of that. Some sort of stabilisation would be welcome, although there are stabilising apps for iOS that you can pre-process your footage if you don't mind the extra step/time. On the upside.... The biggest upside is that there is plenty of upside. LumaFusion isn't just a very good editing app for iOS, its a very good editing app full stop. I initially started using LumaFusion strictly as an in the field editing system for cutting and transmitting pre-match build up pieces in sports stadiums but I actually found I liked it enough to use it as an editor in a lot of non mobile situations where I would normally have used FCPX. Its fast, responsive, logical and unless you have that need for using ProRes and/or multiple LUTS then it can be all the editing system most people actually need. The integration with the Gnarbox 2.0 looks pretty compelling, albeit it at a price, but it glues everything together as a viable professional system with ingesting, transcoding and backups etc. The XML export update is very close to release which will move the story on quite a bit as well as you can then do the edit on your iPad and then finish it off in your "real" desktop NLE if you need the extra options so you can have the best of both worlds. One other thing to note is that everyone that I've ever dealt with at LumaTouch has been helpful and friendly and you can see by how far the system has developed that they care about developing it further and listening to users. Having said all of that though and returning to your original question of can it be used in lieu of Resolve then you need to look at how deeply you use the extra functionality of Resolve and how often you would come up against the bumps in the road that I've outlined. If you are just using h264/265 files with a picture profile that can be corrected with the inbuilt controls and you only then need one "creative" LUT then the chances are it could be all you need. If you are using Cinelike D and then the Leeming LUT for example as a corrective and then always add a film simulation LUT on top then you've immediately got a problem. You should go to their website and download the User Guide to gauge how restrictive its features may or may not be for the way you would use it. https://luma-touch.helpscoutdocs.com/article/87-reference-guide
