  1. These two pieces of software can do similar things but they really are quite different. Studio Artist is really just focussed on 2D effects like those seen in the video above, and these effects are some of the most interesting "natural looking" motion effects I have come across using affordable and quite flexible software. AE (aftereffects) has a lot more to offer alongside producing these type of effects, which makes the two difficult to compare. You are correct the range of things AE can do makes it quite complex, but that also means it can be deep and get you to places that other peo
  2. PS. I am not affiliated in any way with Synthetik Studio Artist, but bought a few licences of the software for some of my students to use to explore with during a video project a while back.
  3. An example from Studio Artist, all of the effects work on both stills and video, some of the effects recreate "natural media" like paint, it can be very flexible working with different effects on separate layers, like most software it needs exploration to find what works for you
  4. After Effects can be fun to explore once you understand the workflow, and the workflow is covered in a lot of Youtube videos so don't be too worried about a steep learning curve. Also take a look at Synthetik Studio Artist they have a demo that would allow some exploration, it's an endless demo that uses a watermark so at least you could check out if it's useful for you, good luck.
  5. This looks great, appreciate the work that has gone into the development, does the module have to be positioned in a particular orientation? could it be positioned in portrait, upside down or under the lens or even hand held?
  6. Yeah, I was a bit disappointed at the time.. Maybe Panasonic could still add it?
  7. The GH5 didn't get the high-res mode update unfortunately, not sure if this was a hardware limitation but it would have been a nice addition as the G9 had a lot of updates from the GH line.
  8. Looking on ebay (completed listings) there seem to be quite a few GH4's going for around the $350 mark, If you have settled on the GH3 it was an ok camera, but the GH4 was a great improvement to the GH line, the addition of 4K and especially the 96fps for me was a big improvement over the quite restricted GH3 https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_sacat=0&LH_Complete=1&_udlo=&_udhi=&_samilow=&_samihi=&_dmd=1&_ipg=50&_fosrp=1&_nkw=panasonic+gh4&_sop=15 Alternatively the g85 has ibis and might be worth a look, a lot of people swear by t
  9. To me this sounds like good news, BM are developing sensor tech that will likely be available in other cams down the line at different price points
  10. If you search lens repair spanner these are often used to get inside..
  11. I came across this video from Richard Gale some time ago, who removed the coatings and tinkered with the Voigtlander 40mm, I am interested in experimenting with coating removal too,
  12. Do you have a link to these? Thanks
  13. Really like my Contax Zeiss 35-70 3.4, bought it to be a flexible addition to some other Contax primes. http://youtu.be/JhpT3UfJub8
  14. I do see quite a subtle pattern looking closer.. Was looking at the video projected and it wasn't that noticeable (hence the reply) the addition of some grain has helped when I've seen this in the past.. and lowering the local contrast would also help with the white and blue verticals. The Tiffen ultra contrast filters help but that direction is quite subjective. Maybe Panasonic can fix it with a firmware update..? ?
