  1. Also, it might be useless mastering in higher than 4k. Now with the advancement in AI neural upscalers (Topaz is currently working on a version of gigapixel for video) you will be able to upscale 4k to 8k effortless, maybe even 2k to 8k! And still looking great. Time will tell...
  2. Thanks a lot of you guys! from the beginning of the project i always come to EOSHD to share and learn. I really appreciate the support!
  3. I finally released my last feature in streaming. It's now on Amazon's Prime Video here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07ZHRZ782 It's a Drama/vengance/thiller type I little bit of history with this. I started to shot this film in the end of 2013 (yes almost 7 years). It took almost 3 years in production. It was shot with a couple of Nikons DSLRs and Super 16mm film. Since it's first screening in the Mar Del Plata International Film Festival in 2016, the film was going around thru some festivals and other screenings. It finally got a theatrical release locally (Argentina) in march this year. It's preaty hard to get distribution to some "kind" of movies. As you can see, this is a very looong process when you are a "newcomer" in the business, but you just to keep pushing. I still have in plan try to reach some other platforms. Only time will tell.
  4. Hi everybody! I know this is off topic, i'm sorry, but I just released my last feature film on Amazon's Prime Video and i wanted to share with some friend from here. Follow the link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07ZHRZ782 This film took some time(around 3 years), it was shot on Nikons and Super 16mm. A little background: https://www.eoshd.com/comments/topic/39600-my-film-on-amazon-prime-video-shot-with-dslr-and-film/ PS: I'm almost finishing shooting a movie i'm DP, it has quite a lot of GH5 and mix some Alexa in there, so the plan is use GHAlex Sorry for the "Off-topic spam".
  5. Hi, i been busy buy but i wanted to share this short film i did last year. The video is private, the film is now going thru festivals, so please don't make it public. But feel free to show with friends. This was shot with GH5 and the used GHAlex Clog conversion, then B/W film emulation.

  7. The Spot has not been publish yet, also it's targeted for Instagram and Facebook, those are the trends nowadays ? But I can share this clip in modest HD quality here. Perfecto_Caos_-_Spot_(Montoya_2).mp4
  8. Hi, I know is not meant to be use with ACES but i shot a little clothing spot for a brand and then tried grade GHAlex with ACES. Over all, very pleased with the result. We have go for a punchy saturated color in here.
  9. A have switched to Resolve already, I still use After Effects tho . The amount of user migrating to Resolve is getting bigger and bigger, Adobe is gonna have to put some effort to not lose it all.
  10. Hi, here is a music video that i was DP, shot with GHAlex. it´s on the band's youtube only, so compression sucks. but i can upload some frames https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4hmsEW6PKQ&fbclid=IwAR3cYGmVBw47xgaaULwJKtSEQ9n8E9vpatP_55kWdZnOG371OHM_9_V_5zg
  11. Hi! It's there any idea if someone wanna try this Lut with Panasonic S1? I'm very curious of the result.

    It's eGPU time!

    have you tried lowering the resolution of your timeline/project, using "smart cache" and "optimized media" functions? I seen very fluid result on old computers with resolve 16 when combining all this options.
  13. Hi everybody! last thing I publish with GH5 Alexa. https://youtu.be/mFdDYp4pgrU
  14. I will try answer you both. I think that to make it realistic it all came down to "order of operation". If you add a diffusion fx in post, make it to be in the very first step of the chain, or at least after the WB/exposure corrections. The grading, look and fxs have to come after that. raw footage ▶️ Diffusion ▶️ corrections ▶️ secondary corrections ▶️ grading/look/ mastering or raw footage ▶️ corrections ▶️ secondary corrections ▶️ Diffusion ▶️grading/look/ mastering Tiffen has it's Dfx plugins witch are really nice, but i also use the Red Giant Looks diffusion, those look great also. Oh! and make sure you are working on 32bit color space. Thanks! Yes. I use the Viltrox EF-m2 its way cheaper. Also, it's a tiny bit softer than the Metabones, but for my taste it helps to reduce the super sharpness of Panasonic cameras.
  15. I used Tiffen black pro mist in the past, but more and more often im opting for using diffusion in post production. Except for some very minor thing i found no difference in using diffusion in post, and you got the advantage of adjusting it shot by shot. This was a very tight production, and time was short. So I decided to shot very clean and then finish in post. Although the vintage Pentax glass has some very particular look.
  16. Regular GH5 I have a 50 f1.4, really sharp wide open, but not acutance. I have used the 35mm f2 in the past, its excellent but hard to find. The only problem with my 50mm is that when you stop it down color start to vary every stop, its prone to go more to a yellow tint.
  17. Hello! I have new stills from a recent shot I was DPing. It's another theme, Kinda of game of thrones thing ?. I think this is a good point of reference to see how color look in this type of forest/swamp with those costumes and production design. Here i used some old vintage Takumar lenses because of the organic look they have, i think they help to sell the fantasy theme. I use the same procedure I always do, and my style of grade using GHa Daylight to LogC. And diffusion LOT of diffusion!
  18. Well the p4k has the advantage of raw, the IQ is better.
  19. I mentioned it but the director really wanted the full frame look, also there are some situations of low key lighting and despite i always light my scenes, the sony do respond really well in low key. On one hand i did some test shots and was able to get some nice color from the Sony. But honestly i prefer the GH5 for IQ and if i can I'm gonna steal some shots with mine for the film.
  20. Hi @Sage is there a Sony a7 version coming some day? I'm currently DPing a Feature and we are using the Sony a7sII.
  21. Love the push is Nikon doing for this 2019... Raw Hdmi output, more body for different budgets. The only thing that is weird for me is the D5700. Imho i't does't make much sense to launch a new "DSLR" style for the lower market, because in general the entry level user looks for the more "practical" features and easy to use. New shooters are in general younger people, and they come from using their phones or some type of hybrid camera. I Think they should aim to a Aps-c mirrorless like the m50, cheap but more prosumer and better build. The DSLR market are more the old professionals, the people with experience that still like the mirror system. i don't know, is the way i see it.
  22. I usually never record or register my productions layout but if I find some time I'll try to write something about it. If you have any specific question you wanna know, write me a private massage and I'll try to put it on a different thread so we don't go off topic.
  23. Hola, yo también hablo español ? es mi primer lengua. Los consejos de GHAlex de los PDF son una gran guia! Yo implemento lo que recomienda en respecto a filmar con Cinelike D, luego vario un poco en respecto a mi flujo de trabajo tradicional. Si, luego lo convierto a LogC y ahi parto de la base de ya trabajar con LogC de costumbre. La ventaja de LogC es que es reconocido como estándar universal. El grading no lo trabajo ni en Premiere ni en Davinci, lo hago todo en After effects. Si, se que es un proceso engorroso, pero es una costumbre que tengo de hace varios años, en algun momento me terminare de pasar a Davinci. Premiere es lo peor para grading, nunca trabajas en una buena profundidad de bits para tener alta calidad, un desastre, en cambio After effects en sus 32 bit es muy preciso y obtienes renders de muy alta calidad. That was all natural light, no fill. ?
