  1. dude i dont even know lol


    the image i posted is one of the steps in the process of the Display Calibrator Assistant found through System Preferences > Displays > Color > Calibrate


    one of the places i work at has a bunch of brand new 27" imacs and i was just wondering the general limitations of those screens for serious color grading + vfx work


    like is it worth it trying to calibrate one at all with or without an external device? i honestly have no idea, although im not blind and i can see that those monitors are hella blue and high contrast out of the box... perfect for this lol



  2. id love to hear g6 specific tips and tricks from my fellow owners!!!

    its day one for me with the camera; never owned a panny before so this is all new to me :o


    what do I need to know about this lil guy? :)


    one question right off the bat:


    so i see that 24p is available in avchd but not mp4 (?)


    whats the easy way to deal with avchd files on a mac running mavericks? no idea wtf is going on with the file structure/whatever. i have cs6 software btw


    P L E A S E  H E L P  G U Y S


    also, generally, id love to hear about what youre doing to make that g6 footage look more organic and less electronic, more cinematic and less videographic~!




  3. For the record - the Canon 6D gives almost identical still image quality as the 5d mark 3 for a fraction of the price. Just something consider if you do want to go the full frame route


    thats a good point zach


    yes, op, its hard to consider your query without price being a factor? but in the event that its not then 5d3 all the way


    or 6d, if we're just talking about stills and you want to save some money

  4. Eizo CS or CX as mentioned above.

    Images look 'eye candy' on the iMac screen, but flatter and darker on my Eizo. You want a true representation for correct grading.


    thanks a lot chrisso ill check them out


    ive just barely started getting into what my options are for [FRUGAL but effective] cc monitiors ::sigh::

  5. The iMac monitor is brighter and more punchy than a proper grading monitor. I use a second, flatter monitor with it.


    id love to hear more about this


    im going to be getting a new 27" imac and i assumed id need a second monitor for color (not to mention convenience)


    recommendations welcome :) 

  6. I've always found the ML RAW files have a very brittle feeling to them when I'm pushing them around in Lightroom, ACR within AE, or Resolve. 


    would you be kind enough to elaborate on this friend? how so? no irony meant whatsoever 

  7. @maxotics, thank you for the explanation


    i must say that i find this work both technically fascinating and aesthetically compelling


    youre definitely onto something here


    id love to see more of this


    your ambition to show "something recognizable, like someone's face" is very intriguing


    tbh if i wasnt such an 'original' asshole i would TOTALLY steal your idea for some kind of art installation  B) 


    love that 'bayer' image


    kinda just wanna curl up in that sea of green and sleep forever


    3) Although I have accurate live view in video mode, in photo mode the EVF and screen do not represent what the photo is going to look like.  They always preview a brightly lit image, regardless of my exposure settings.  



    hmmm whats that all about...? i was thinkin about picking up a g6, you guys experiencing this as well? 

  9. I just ordered a BMPCC a couple of hours ago.  BH has a special where you get Vegas 12 Pro for free.  Wow!


    Congratulations maxotics~! looking forward to seeing what you do with it  B)


    also: this is a great thread v interesting


    thanks guys
