  1. I got mines by email as well.  It's been told it's the alternative to AE.  I tried HF2E when they offered it, and I concur with Andrew, it's really nice.

    "Also couldn't find a way to apply a LUT."

    Actually, they have starter pack, I think.


    as per their Colorist Pack:

  2. Like I said, I got mine in the mail the other day and I have filmed about 5 minutes of tests with it and so far I am really happy with it. My other camera is an eos-m, and I have duplicates of a Minolta MD 50mm f2, nice underrated lens btw, and I think I may do a side by side test between the two. I was always happy with the eos-m but now I am curious to see how the a5100 stacks up. 

    ​Wow, mercer.  I can't wait to see it!

  3. I just picked up an a5100, I bought it because of the 50mbps XAVS-C codec. I usually transcode everything to prores before bringing it into FCPX, but MPEGStreamclip doesn't handle it. Does anyone know of another program that will transcode it... EditReady?

    I too been wanting to get the a5100 after having both the Pany GF2 and Canon EOS-M, and heard so much about the XAVS-C codec.  Maybe Sony Vegas would do the trick, Resolve - I don't know either.

  4. Quite interesting.  I just now found out about it throug the NoFilmSchool site via Facebook.  I can only imagine what it's competitors are thinking now (hint: Adobe)...  Kinda wish that Resolve can work on my system.

  5. I checked out your short movie and...


    Wow, you bring forth inspiration to me. 


    I'm a chicken when it comes to being creative, and I too, like to delve in making a movie.  Good settings, camerawork, lighting, sound they truly resemble a short movie, and only YOU and the support you have helped made that.


    Be proud of yourself, better yet like others have said, put your work out on sites like Facebook (also, have you ever heard of Nofilmschool?).


    Keep up at your craft, and I hope to see/hear more from you.

  6. Lots of great help in this thread. Thanks  :)


    I wasn't considering Resolve when I bought the Win PC, but remembered it afterwards and thought I'd give it a go. So I didn't check the Resolve hardware specs too carefully.


    I haven't updated the AMD drivers so I'll do that tomorrow, but it looks like that GPU isn't good for Resolve anyway.




    I have often wondered that Resolve takes only NVIDIA CUDAs (how many cores is anybody's guess), but again, I haven't even delved in their system specs.  Yet, they don't even put in the system specs in their Resolve site, but with one their configuration guides, and still I can't put my finger around it.  I managed to get Resolve 11 on my computer system (then the OpenCL reliant/need of hight GPU error popped up), let it work on my C drive, logged in, select my project, locate my clip (in ProRES), and like you, BOOM crashed.  So, I'm at a crossroads of finding a good editor/grading system.  How's Premiere's Color Correcting system -- any good?

  7. Interesting.  Too bad that they didn't have the sale last year when I bought me a EOS-M (okay guys, go easy on me).  Sadly short on funds here, and just cheking the reviews on the make/model and the workflow of it.


    My question is this - is it true that you can shoot 2K with the BMPCC or is it still 1080p?

  8. Have you tried adjusting your anamorphic up 10, 25, 50 to infinity in meters? I have the same design, but it's a Sankor 16f.  With my anamorphic, I had to focus with both the anamorphic lens and the taking lens.  I would suggest that you move the top head of the anamorphic lens which gives you the length of focal distance (you would see the numbers - e.g.: 6, 8, 10)

    Hope that helps.
