    This. 
     
    This cuts down the work for you, and insulates you (somewhat) from criticism about what gets cut from the forum.  You can just tell people to take it up with the mods.  It allows you to play good cop to the mod's bad cop.  It's worth a shot anyway.  It's obviously something you could undo. 
     
    You might also consider a "shitlist" topic where all complaints can be logged.  This will help to avoid the appearance that you are silencing critics, and allow you to remove these type of posts from what are otherwise on-topic threads (and then  moving them to the shitlist).

    very interesting thank you.
     
    Can you share just 1 frame of the original 4k and the same frame downsample to 2k 10bit?
     
    Just to experiment in post to test the difference

    " Their existing Cinema and Pocket Camera user base is lost. It’s over. These users will switch to the Panasonic GH4 and Sony A7S"
     
    Why?  Do these cameras offer 12-bit raw? Nope.

    The GH2 was the last GH Panasonic will ever sell me, the last DSLR/Mirrorless I'll ever buy to shoot anything but stills with.  I find nothing appealing about the GH4 or the Sony.  I'll never buy another compressed camera (lossy, h264 or variants), one that tops out at 422 or needs another box to shoot RAW.  BMD has done nothing to sway my interest in their products and these new cameras only solidify my resolve that if I can't have an Alexa it'll be a Blackmagic.

    I use this too. I grew up with SoundForge and ACID for audio, so Vegas was the first editor i used.

    Fucking masterpiece. Looks like it was shot on film. Great story, great lighting, great shot composition. 
     
    If forced to nitpick, i would say that the opening shots in the graveyard were not as strong as everything that followed.

    HurtinMinorKey got a reaction from Damphousse in Handheld or tripod? How do I decide?!   
    Use handheld only when you have a very good reason to.  And don't compare handheld shots to static, compare them to slides, pans, tilts, ..etc.

    The only thing we can expect from the Canon Cinema line is a price way above what the specs are worth.  C200 - 8 grand, C400 - 15 grand. Awesome. Cannot wait to not buy any of these.

    HurtinMinorKey reacted to johnnymossville in Canon 4K refresh - C200 and C400 coming at NAB?   
    A C200 with a prores codec would be a beautiful thing indeed.   Will the price will be that "entry level" though? I expect it will be similarly priced to the current C100 if not slightly more.   Of course, entry level is all relative isn't it?  
     
    It looks as though Canon is really going to try to move dslr video shooters over into buying something from the C series.  Can't say I blame them,  they've got the dslr market pretty well covered as far as dominating sales.

    I am amazed what other blogs (PetaPixel, Planet5D) consider as front page news.
     
    This kind of stuff generates clicks. Brain dead, but it is click bate nonetheless. That makes money in the long run.
     
    I am so sick of this kind of gimmicky, zero fact or imagination based click bate.
     
    I hope Blackmagic refuse to replace the camera on principal. The guys posting this have lost Blackmagic business and it might not even have been a legitimate battery fault.

    Hi guys,
     
    We just shot this video with the BMCC, Metabones Speedbooster, Nikon Lenses and Iscorama 54MC.
    RAW files were developped in After Effects CS6 (with Camera Raw) to Prores444 2400/1350. Color grading was done in AE.
     

     
    Please let us know what you think, we'd love to get some feedback.
     
    Cheers,
    Mihnea

    Here's something I'd like to get feedback for from all you creative types. What methods do you use when coming up with ideas for your craft? Do you find yourself too distracted by the noise of things like instagram, twitter, Facebook, etc? How do you stay focused and make your work a reality?

    Have they scored the Alexa? I don't think so. I guess it's because the Dragon is marketed as stills also? They might as well run that test too.

    The compression algorithm it's not important here. I did some synthetic tests (>post #118) simulating a best case scenario (a full 4K 4:4:4 8-bit image to a 2K 4:4:4 32-bit). I've tried different scaling algorithms and even adding noise doesn't give us any extra colour information. 
      We technically get an image with increased bit depth(since we're blending some pixels), but it doesn't translate in smoother tonality or better colours.
