  1. as the raw files are grinding my 2012 iMac into the ground


    sorry to hear that friend~! ugh i wouldve thought a 2012 imac would be ok with this workflow? dunno which model you have...


    i was thinking about a new high spec 27" imac is that a bad idea for this kind of workflow? :/


    I just started using Capture One. It is most definitely tha shit.


    may i please ask what you guys like about capture one so much specifically? im not familiar with it but i read a bit about it and id love to know why its a preference for you! its new to me


    and lastly: wait so is the moire and aliasing going to be a deal breaker on bmpcc raw or what

  2. yeah


    everything ive done to these files looks amazingly good


    the grain in amazingly filmic


    with zero sharpening in acr the point of focus certainly has enough clarity for me rn


    and then, sharpening it, bit by bit...the reaction seems amazing to me, how well it sharpens in acr without falling apart


    im delightfully surprised


    i KNEW the prores was way off of what this lil guy was capable of :)


    that being said bm needs a new pr guy




    OH. AND?











    so ive had a few beers but THIS IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT FROM THE PRORES???




    uhm yeah unless im freaking lost u can massage these dngs pretty good


    this is seriously not a rhetorical post i was reading an article about rec 2020 last night that literally talked about imaginary colors i was like f this im going to sleep im losing my mind here


    but pretty sure i kno how acr works tho and im impressed :)


    what do you guys think?? how does this compare specifically to the bmpcc prores

  4. I know it is not raw, but have you looked into a 2nd hand Sony F3? I've seen some amazingly cheap prices, kits for $5k or so.... couple it with a BM recorder and you are shooting 10bit S-log at 13 stops DR with alot of nice video features and quality audio.


    dude! EXACTLY. an actual video camera––a freaking great one




    ::sigh:: idek


    also, @maxotics - very interesting

  5. maxotics this is exactly the shit that im talking about, the insight im looking for


    and i commend your effort with the EOS-M, seriously


    may i ask: how are you so smart about this stuff??? rocket scientist???? :o


    at the end of the day, although of course the 5d3 shoots great stills, and i have a need for that, im ONLY looking at it as a video camera because i am soooooo subjectively in love with that image, both because i think it looks amazing and because i have a history of shooting canon slr raw stills... and thats just what it looks like. so the color science is very familiar to me in that respect


    but yeah, blackmagic would be soooooo much easier to deal with!!!! ugh. thats why all this is driving me crazy


    like i feel like shooting an indie feature with this "hack" is a little insane because (thank God) there ARE other options today that are affordable?? for great cinematic video??


    and?? it fucking scares me that something wont work on the set and ill just be like "Well citizenkaden thats what you get for using this hack bullshit on a freaking movie you moron"


    i just wish i could count on ml raw becoming stable smh :(

  6. Thank you so much for the feedback guys, that's what I was hoping to hear~! lol


    The heart wants what the heart wants –– and my heart wants a 5d3 to f**k around with for the next year or so while I figure other things out for my lil production


    I'm sold on image quality, moreover I'm in love with it.


    What pitfalls are there that I need to be aware of? It's ultimate goal is being used in my lil low budg feature... which is in terms of production a bit like My Dinner with Andre meets Trainspotting


    One thing, have you though about audio? I know they are making some strides on that side of things, but it might never sync perfectly


    Hmmm that's something to be aware of, thank you ScreensPro


    dont rlly know what I'm dealing with there, I'll have to do some googling

  7. What's going to happen in the future for Magic Lantern raw video, specifically on the 5d Mark III?


    Where will that project be in a year, two years?


    I'm in a position where I'd love to invest in a 5d3 and accompanying lens system if I felt that I could reasonably predict where the Magic Lantern team is going


    Undoubtedly the firmware will improve by leaps and bounds


    As a film maker working on my first feature which will not be shot for, let's say, several years, I just wish I could say I might have an idea of where the future could lead––regarding ease of use and speed in workflow primarily. I'm already thrilled with the image: that's why I'm interested


    May I please ask for your subjective speculation?


    To put a fine point on it: is it completely insane to invest in that camera system anytime soon given the rapid changes in the market, assuming that one wants it as a learning tool in the present, in order to do much more serious work years from now? Please consider that shooting stills is an ongoing need


    Is there any reasonable chance that the ML team will abandon further development of raw video features in the near future?


    I would love to hear your input. Thank you in advance you guys r v smart

  8. personally i like the 16x9 ratio for what it was supposed to be... a letterbox/pillarbox compromise that works for delivering tv


    also, empirically speaking, i think its a nifty rectangle to design in, when its horizontal


    but as Ben mentioned, for better or for worse, a LOT of phones/tablets/mobile devices have adopted that 16x9 ratio, and I expect that trend to continue


    what does that mean for us as film makers? idk


    i watched the dark knight rises on blu ray with a friend of mine the other day and i succeeded in keeping my mouth shut the whole time. when it was over i asked her if she noticed the aspect ratio changing during the film and her response was "no"


    so theres that too 

  9. I believe that a person is a filmmaker, a painter, a sculptor, etc, etc, and that whether what they make is deemed to be 'art' or not has very little to do with THEM defining it as such


    hmmm well literally ever single one of my favorite 20th century artists would disagree vehemently with that statement; moreover most of them would echo the assertion that art is defined by the artist's intention


    then again, this is a distinction between a fine art discourse and another kind of discussion

  10. I find it hard to take art films seriously these days though, unless they refuse to take themselves seriously that is ;)


    You know what you would love? Watching the entire Cremaster Cycle*


    I'm much more of that mindset too now - though self-reflexive irony can be just as dull. There are a handful of "serious" art films that are brilliant though - La Jete included.


    Fun Brighton film - and yes it's the soundtrack that makes it!  :)


    I assume that discussion on this forum excludes "films" and "videos" which exist within a fine art discourse––but I have a fine art background and I find all that very interesting~! Apparently you do too Dr. Smith. Do you have a fine art practice?


    The feature film I'm making functions both as a fine art piece and as a commercial film product––it's both.


    But yeah Andy Warhol's Sleep wasn't meant to entertain, quite the opposite lol. That's not what I'm making.


    *I am joking u would want to kill yourself do not watch 

  11. guys,


    is it fair to say that a desqueezed anamorphic image effectively widens the angle of view of a lens without being distortive in the way that wider lenses typically are?


    like a 50mm lens still looks like a 50mm lens...but... theres more of it


    know what im sayin?? im new to this trynna understand whats goin on here


    how do you describe this phenomenon. you guys must know what i mean


    edit: yeah im hella confused

  12. Imperfections can be beautiful but they have to be the right sort.


    All this digital puke isn't the right kind of imperfection. Well in very rare circumstances it does have a use.... 28 Days Later was shot on DV and the graininess, hard clipping, etc. added to the mood. However, going back and watching that film again I am shocked at how anaesthetically pleasing it is, despite being incredibly well directed and DP'ed


    a great contrast to the walking dead which in my view is a production pretty well served by that 16mm film grain


    sure beats that digital puke huh
