  1. screwing around, learning premiere pro and magic bullet looks so excuse the poor color correction: notice how the vertical lines seem a bit slanted to the right? and I'm not sure but it seems to me as if the whole video is tilted to the right also, what seems to be the best way to export anamorphic footage? (codecs/output)
  2. tried that, it seems as if the vertical lines are warped. is this supposed to happen?
  3. I've moved back to Final Cut 7, I'm new to editing and I find it much easier to use. (I might make the jump to adobe premiere) Buying my first anamorphic lens has really helped me start understanding my Canon 7D much better. I'm used to being on the other side of the camera, so all of it this is very new and exciting, perhaps a bit frustrating at times but still. This forum and it's members has been a great help to me as well. I'm shooting on a super takumar 50mm, with an isco ultra star. I can't seem to get the lens aligned properly, either that or I'm unsqueezing the footage wrong because the image is coming out a bit warped, almost fish eye. 1)I try to get the anamorphic lens as vertical as possible. This doesn't produce the best image. 2)I've tried the flare method - however the flare "horizontal line" seems to stay in place as I move the anamorphic glass around, it just gets skewed. So when I read to align the lens the flare line is horizontal, I can't for the life of me figure out what I'm doing wrong. 3)I'm using Final Cut pro 7, shooting on a 7D. The way I change the aspect ratio is start my sequence at 1920 x 720, then when I drag my clip on the timeline I change the aspect ratio to -50. (As per the the EOSHD anamorphic guide) for 2.66:1 to get a 1.5x squeeze. I also uncheck the "Anamorphic 16:9" box when creating my sequence. I'm linking a youtube video - It's out of focus but it shows 3 clips. I have an LED flashlight lighting into the camera, and it shows me moving the glass around trying to get the flare horizontal. The 2nd clip is the alignment I used by carefully eyeballing the anamorphic glass to be as vertical as possible on the taking lens - it still warps the image a little bit like a fisheye lens would. Hopefully this will help you guys give me an answer:
  4. Hi, I'm trying to unsqueeze my clips shot on a 2x anamorphic lens. However, I'm not sure how to do this. Im using final cut X, and there is no anamorphic preset. I also can't for the life of me find a way to change the aspect ratio.
  5. I'm looking at these, so if anybody could help me out.. http://www.ebay.com/itm/ISCO-Optic-Cinemascope-Ultra-Star-Movie-Projector-Lens-And-Attachment-/310876331505?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4861ac5df1 http://www.ebay.com/itm/ISCO-OPTIC-ULTRA-STAR-CINEMASCOPE-MC-W-ISCO-OPTIC-50MM-1-97IN-ULTRASTAR-HD-MC-/121278449141?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1c3cc245f5 http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=171239395956&ssPageName=ADME:X:RTQ:US:1123 http://www.ebay.com/itm/ISCO-OPTIC-CINEMASCOPE-ULTRA-STAR-GOLD-metal-/271405818010?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3f310c209a http://www.ebay.com/itm/ISCO-OPTIC-GERMANY-ULTRA-STAR-70MM-35MM-CINE-MOVIE-PROJECTOR-LENS-/281252380188?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item417bf2be1c I'm definitely worried about the minimum focus range, i don't want to get stuck with one thats 15 ft
  6. So im new to anamorphic shooting, and I have a few questions that would be awesome if you guy us can clear up for me! The isco ultra star is the most affordable option for me right now. However there are a multitude of options on eBay when it comes to cinemascopes.. 1) does focal length matter? There are ones that range from 40mm to 80mm and up, what is the difference and does it matter? 2) some ultra star cinemascopes have the blue star logo and others don't. Is there a difference? 3) can someone just quickly search ebay for isco ultra star cinemscopes and give examples of ones that are viable and ones that aren't ? Ill be using a 7d with the vid atlantic clamp. I've tried searching the forums but I'm still a bit confused. Thanks!
