  1. That lut is literally not in the same universe as the level of work Alex has done here. I doubt that person profiled each camera - it looks more like hue curve adjustments in Resolve.
  2. Good money?! DUDE. The level of math based, highly technical data corrections going into Alex's luts ( I know, I have asked him), and what that costs if you were to use proprietary luts created by a post house - id say you are getting a steal for how high quality these luts are. Have you ever looked into the work Steve Yedlin is doing? Once you dive down the path of understanding how highly technical transforms are made, you realize why it is so valuable, and that NONE of this work is created in the traditional software we use, like Davinci Resolve.
  3. I mean the guy is only one person, and funding the camera rental, while nice, still doesn't pay the bills - which is where the time thing comes in, and Alex clearly has made a decision on what to do first based on the P4k demand. While that may not fit your needs, the Gh5s is becoming the minority, and I just think it is distasteful to act like he should just focus on what you want, because he said it is on the roadmap a long while back. He made no promises, and I am sure he has every intention of getting to it. I was simply throwing some sarcasm out there.
  4. You should probably put your money where your mouth is and fund him quitting his day job.
  5. I personally have a Hoya Variable ND which has been fantastic is is very affordable. There is IR pollution when using ND filters on the P4k, not nearly as bad as the Ursa but it is definitely there. I put the IR cut first based on some recommendations i received on filter stacking - I figure since most IR cut filters are over the sensor, it makes sense to have it first? I use a promist 1/8 and just leave it on all the time. I feel it is a nice balance, sometimes it isn't enough, but it is never too much - and I like being able to leave it on all the time to take the edge off any harshness.
  6. An affordable way to do ND, IMO, is get like a Tiffen or Hoya variable 77mm and then grab like a B+W IR cut filter. Then it is universal, and you aren't spending as much on all in one IRND. Maybe not quite as high quality as all in one options, but I have been stacking a B+W Ir cut, then Black pro mist, and then Variable ND (when needed) for a while and getting great results on the Pocket 4k, never get any reflections. Different lens packages and cameras may have different issues with reflections though, something to be aware of.
  7. Is this bit going to be useful with highlight recovery?
  8. Right, so I suppose the highlight recovery tool serves two functions? In un-clamping highlights a lower than 400 iso value as Gerald said, and also rebuilding detail in certain clipped situations, but not all. Does it help to change iso in post to get more highlight detail, or does that only work when exposing? I will try it right now and share. Update: I just tried it and it doesn't seem to make a difference - in fact I think there may be less detail it seems... which I am wondering if that is because it is not "real" detail and therefore doesn't interact the same with iso in terms of detail in the stops the same?
  9. Highlight recovery needs to be used at 400 iso still when ettr'ing, it seems super whites get clamped. Not sure if maybe Gerald's understanding is off, but you definitely need to use it at 400 iso in my testing. These images are original, then lowered exposure and then lowered exposure with highlight recovery on.
  10. Actually, try this one. Made a few tweaks to things. GhaToP4k_1_142.2.dpx GhaToP4k_1.142.2.drx
  11. Thanks! Here is my powergrade of my process. I shoot raw exclusively, so set colorspace and gamma to Acescct/ap1 in the raw tab. There is also an instance of filmconvert for grain you may or may not have to turn off if you don't have film convert. You can go through each node to see my adjustments. I convert to vlog with a CST. GhaToP4k_1_234.1.dpx GhaToP4k_1.234.1.drx
  12. Thanks! I agree - the GHa lut seems to already play really nice with the P4k...the main workaround right now is in the highlights, since the p4k has more dynamic range, you have to bring down highlights before the lut.
  13. I have been using GHa on my P4k until Alex has the new lut ready. Thought i'd share a few tests - I feel like it is working quite well, and handles over-saturated reds and blues pretty nicely. Looking forward to the official lut
  14. Ahh interesting. Good info, thanks.
  15. Are you using color managed timeline? Any other settings changed other than just converting to Arri colorspace?
  16. Either the redipp2 route or using Acescct out of the raw tab have been good solutions for me so far.
  17. The only thing i'd debate is how the form factor of a "brain" is better than something with a handgrip? Also, does it not shoot RAW? Wouldn't that be a pretty big difference, especially at a higher price point?
  18. @Wild Ranger Very nice work! I also am a big fan of the colored versions. Your lighting is particularly nice also - Are you using any fill on these close-ups or is this all natural light?
  19. 33x33 and 65x65 are just container sizes essentially (someone correct me if I am wrong), meaning it allows for more robust and accurate luts the larger the lut size. Pretty much like a codec allows for more or less bitrate. 33x is usually enough for most work but in the case of EmotiveColor it is such a highly technical and advanced lut that I am going for the 65x, plus my cpu can handle it.
  20. @ChristianH It is the same. The settings are all there, Alex seems to have just cropped out unused settings. The blend mode is at the bottom of the ofx.
  21. @mercer ah ah that they are! My bad - not sure why i wrote russian. Good info, Mercer. I will be on the lookout for those specs! @Wild Ranger i didnt realise the 4:3 gave the correct crop! Ill have to try it out!
  22. @Wild Ranger that is awesome! Those old c mount lenses are gorgeous. Did you get any kind of vignetting since the gh5 sensor is bigger? Did you use a viltrox adapter or regular? I had my eye on a 16mm 1.8 c mount but read there would be some vignetting. I really would love to build a collection of Russian Kern c mounts.
  23. @Téodor Spencer These are all using a standard, non-speedbooster adapter. I just got a viltrox woohoo!! Some frames are 4k but most are 2k - but all 4k files were down res’d to 2k. Its cool you get the 16mm vibe too - ive always found the soft and main have very film like saturation response and separation. Add a bit of grain and bring down the blacks and thats pretty much all i do!
  24. @Ryley K @Téodor Spencer Hey thank you both! Ummm for lenses these were all from either an old Nikon 28mm 2.8 and a 35mm 2.4 Zeiss Flektogon - I always use a black pro mist 1/8 on all my footage. I don't do too much to get to this look - I follow Alex's methods, adding his olpf simulation on the front end. I then use his curves recommendation with the 'hue pass-through' method. After that I add some extra contrast and saturation in LAB colorspace to give some extra color separation and then add some film grain. Alex has done something truly incredible with this lut in my opinion - He has totally flipped the idea of what a lut is capable of on its head.
