    Haha! Brilliant. At least irony is alive in art!

    Art-world texts are always so try-hard. There's a few interesting points in there, but they're drowned in post-modern word salad, obscurantism designed to hide the self-evident nature of most of the ideas being espoused behind a flurry of pointless syllables. I know a few people who have been on art doctorate courses, and have been told to start using more invented words and obscuring their meaning more. Can you imagine? Make it more "exclusive". I suppose when acceptance onto a course is primarily down to whether you can pay the fee or not though, in the end you HAVE to do away with objectivity in order to give people a pass LOL
  4. This is just about as late as they can leave it. Having been on C100 MK1 for years for the standard budget level work where Amira can't be hired in, it's annoying not to have anything over 30p and no 4K. It absolutely needs 4k/30p at least, and 1080/100p wouldn't go amiss. Otherwise I'm off to get a GH5 to cover those needs. Money is waiting, Canon!
  5. No post noise reduction on any of these? If so I'd happily use any ISO listed.
  6. As they say where I'm from, you legend! True, audio isn't quite working. The panner, for example, does nothing. My praise is based on it being a beta, if they don't fix all this for release, it would hastily be withdrawn :D
  7. I've played a bit with some notation apps in Vive. At the moment resolution is just too low, unfortunately! Soon though....
  8. I've sort of gone off these 1:1 modes after using red... the noise become massive, as each pixel is taking up more of the frame but yeah they can be useful in a pinch
  9. Cheers for posting this, i learned a lot! It confirms what I thought... they're just building up around old code. It's a bit like the Kowloon walled city, there's only so long you can keep adding to it until you have to start again for the sake of everyone's sanity... RESOLVE QUESTION: One of my favorite things in Lumetri in Premiere is to add a LUT and using say 40% blend of it. How would I do this in Resolve? It's one of the few things I've not worked out yet.
  10. This is in line with what is floating about and seems reasonable given their standard release schedules. I'm gonna take a stab and say they'll probably price it around 6-7000 mark, so more than the C100 mk ii was at release. Either that or they'll actually make it a C100 Mkiii with a small step up in spec as before. Maybe 1080p100 and 4kp30 Canon seem to have some kind of aversion to high speed so I wouldn't expect more than 100fps. They could also make a mildly upgraded C100 MK iii AND a C200 and not cannibalise the line, this would make some sense and keep the core C100 format profitable, a bit like the constant upgrades of the 550D ad nauseum. TBH it's the one I've been waiting for, but we all know pinning hopes on Canon these days is a bit like waiting for Father Christmas and seeing your dodgy uncle walk in wearing just a beard and novelty boxers.

    You can also now access text tools in the second tab of "Essential Grpahics", but these don't appear in the bins, confusingly enough. You also wont be able to use these without first selecting the type tool and typing on the frame. Also, in essential graphics, you can't type the name of a font you want, only the first letter, so if you have lots you have to scroll for days to get the one you want. It's just all a bit... shit. It's just really disappointing. Lumetri panel was a breath of fresh air, great accelerated grading in the timeline, this new update feel like some kind of mess. My only hope is that theyre leaning towards integrating the whole production workflow, but the suite is now spread out across so many different programmes, betas, tools and even some abandonware (Speedgrade) that something as contained as Resolve makes it look like a bit of a bad joke. Once resolve editing is as swift as Prem, it'll be a no-contest. It may well be for all I know. But I'm now a decade-long user, who has started learning a rival piece of software... The question is: do i really to give them £500 a year to give me occasioanl beta updates? I'm not sure I do.

    I found today that "Title" has disappeared from the "New" menu in Premiere. So i found this tutorial in trying to hunt for it: https://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-pro/how-to/add-titles-graphics-video-project.html Except that none of the menus mentioned exist as described. On PC here, there is no "Title Tools" under Window. What there is, is an unfinished entry that says (no title) at the top, if you click on (no title) you get a "Legacy Title" window. After searching in the keyboard shortcuts I found "New Title" bound to Ctlr+T. That's the only way to access it, otherwise it appears it has been hidden. You can also now access text tools in the second tab of "Essential Grpahics", but these don't appear in the bins, confusingly enough. You also wont be able to use these without first selecting the type tool and typing on the frame. Also, in essential graphics, you can't type the name of a font you want, only the first letter, so if you have lots you have to scroll for days to get the one you want. It's just all a bit... shit. This feels like beta. I mean literally not finishing typing the names of the menu entries before releasing... I dunno what to say.
  13. I have a feeling it is the Cuda thing... I'm on PC with a powerful card, when I'm docked it's a Titan X. I think this is a great FCPX style thing for PC users. On Mac I hear it's more temperamental. I have to agree it's not as fast in terms of control at the moment, I'll have to do a lot of key rebinding i think.
  14. Just tried the demo for Reolve 14, think it's spectacular and I'll be migrating from Premiere, after a decade or so of using it. It's MORE forward thinking than FCP-X, as it actually has a real NLE for audio and proper grading that makes sense. $299 has made the decision easy. At $999 I'd have left it to be honest, so I think it's a great idea. With regard to depreciation: that's part of the system. Sounds harsh but you have to suck it up. It's all going to keep getting cheaper and that's a good thing. Try buying a Sony camera, you'll lose a few grand in a year. Don't mention a new car! RE: Avid, AMA is cancer and for me Media Composer is as backward looking as it gets, IMHO.

    That one is very rare for me now, but does happen. The MAIN one is SO ANNOYING. I mix the audio with plugins and faders and so on, I export the finished film and IT IGNORES ALL OF IT! The audio is just as though all faders are reset and plug-in slots are empty. As a result I have to export audio seperately, and bring back in. It's absurd. I also mean VST plug-ins being completely reset, plug-in interfaces appearing at unreadably tiny size on hi-DPI displays, phantom automation being recorded without you asking for it... There's lots more niggling bugs, but I don't think there's a lot of interest in fixing them If they just kept all the features the same for a year, but added loads and loads of bug fixes, simple practical features and compatability improvements, I for one would be a lot happier

    On the whole I like Premiere as an NLE and se it daily, the native grading is much better than FCPX's, but Adobe's atitude to bugs is terrible. There are still horrendous bugs in audio, the mixer and automation, if using a mixture of high DPI and standard displays and so on... The same bugs reported endlessley, thread after thread, year after year, no solutions. The same simple feature requests over and over, completely ignored... BUT WAIT! NEW MAGIC EDIT BUTON (or some similar gimmick)
  17. Hi all, Quick request: does anyone have any GH5 high speed files straight from camera they can share? Preferably v-log? Or indeed any straight from camera files they don't mind sharing. Trying to make a purchasing decision and any and all help is greatly appreciated!
  18. yeah the ghosting is a shame. it's still a useful camera though for just working as a quick, single unit. Here's hoping the next version gets it right! Sigh...
  19. Using C100 is what turned me on to ignoring sheets of numbers and start looking at real-world performance. It's wonderfully robust for such compressed footage. Stick a Ninja 2 on it with DNxHD 220x or similar and the footage is amazing, again, the pipeline has something good going on.
  20. same with Amira. It's actually nicer in general using Amira ProRes than any Red Raw I've used. Just light-weight and amazing clean colour and range. Convenient and beautiful, what's not to like.
  21. Looks nice! Does look very phone like, something about the sharp deep DOF, but proves you can do it on a phone these days if the aesthetic suits the content. Content wise that was full cave-aged cheddar, the orbiting the guy on a rock playing a mandolin actually made me LOL. But ya know, that's wedding films.
  22. I'm currently using an Alienware, but when it comes to upgrade time I think II may be on these. They look great! That said, a 1060m ain't that beefy. I think the current Alienware have 1070 or 1080m as an option. Alienware tend to spec higher, but aren't as "mac like" as they're big and bulky. I was thinking of switching to Mac and then the new "pro" line came out... not convinced by them...
  23. Have used two for almost my entire income for a few years. Talk about workhorses!
  24. I've never found anything in the visual arts quite so easy to ignore as DXOMARK It's just so neckbeard and abstract!
  25. My relationship with Premiere feels more "disappointed father" than "angry kid". Premiere is what I use for most of my living, but it does grate me. It's like: there's all this potential to totally integrate Pp, Ae, Audition and so on, to genuinely leverage CUDA and Open CL through the whole of the pipeline instead of doing it at select stages for select processes and pretending the whole thing is accelerated. There's room to take a fresh look at layout and streamlining. It's like they could build an amazing Russian wedding cake out of all these layers, but instead what happens year on year is a few more sweets are stuck onto each stale old victoria sponge. Even when it comes to tiny feature requests like one we've been bombariding them with for four years they never come. It still likes to ignore audio levels in the mixer on export, that's been in it for 5 version across four different computers and OSes for me... never fixed despite nagging. It still likes to reset your audio plugins completely with no warning, to output huge 0dBFS spikes when you enable or diasable, has laggy feedback when adjusting audio plugins... never fixed. The LUT import of even their built in LUTs on Lumetri has a habit of crashing... it goes on... But I'm of course supposed to be satisfied with an app for my phone that can look at colours and save them to the cloud. It's a bit like being a tax payer, you just sit there open mouthed at what they spend your moeny on and think "how is this a good deal?" Apologies for analogy overload. Proxy workflow looks good! Lolle.
