  1. All of those are very nice, but that last one is perty. Really like the natural film like colors.
  2. 2 Timothy 3:1-4 (ESV) 1 But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. 2 For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, 4 treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, For many, the situation our world finds itself in is not a surprise. Still sad though. Jesus is the answer my friends. John 16:33 (ESV) I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world." By the way @Andrew Reid, this is the second time in a week I’ve heard about this book, which is interesting for a book over 30 years old. I think I’m going to take the plunge.
  3. What is a moment anamorphic? I haven’t heard about this.
  4. Shot with my iPad mini last night. No pp.
  5. My understanding was that codec was a derivative of “COmpression DECompression”. So the video signal needs to be compressed and then decompressed. It is also my understanding that some codecs are compressed/decompressed in a way that is more suitable for cameras and editors. And some are more suitable for video players. The trade off being that the smaller files that video players handle more easily are more taxing to compress for cameras and more taxing for an editor to decompress and edit on the fly.
  6. I only have this device, but I can’t see it at all.
  7. Could you point out what you’re seeing? I don’t see it. I’m watching on an iPad mini. Not a big screen but not a small phone either. Footage looks beautiful to me.
  8. Regarding the Red patented compressed raw problem. Could it be as simple as just not marketing it as raw? Instead calling it a “dynamic codec” or something. Would be interesting if @CaptainHook or someone with real world knowledge of this could chime in on what make compressed raw an infringement. i bet the line is blurry.
  9. Just throwing this out there. yesterday I rented and watched Venom. I noticed some red clipping in the night chase scene. More than once. None of the other colors. Reminded me of the P4K. Was shot on Arri and Red. Not sure if that was a fault of the camera or delivery. Recently saw a black hole in a major studio production. Can’t remember which it was. It was super brief. Probably no one else noticed.
  10. One more thing. For better or worse I’ve decided to stop doing what everyone else is doing. Everyone wants attention. Everyone wants to build a following. Everyone wants to preach. I want to be different. I’ve decided to do the work. I’m going to make films. If i have any success at all let it be for that. As fun as a side project would be, if it takes away from filmmaking it is simply resistance that needs to be vanquished. (As is participating in forums all day.) You recently finished a film. Great job. Keep it up.
  11. My 2 pennies based on no first hand experience and a decent amount of second hand experience. Develop a brand. Determine your niche and demo and then stick to it. Refine sure. But I think consistency is key, both in production quantity and branding. By the way, you need a draw. Personality. Cuteness. Awesomeness. Something uniqueish and engaging. Reach out to non competing but overlapping creators. There’s a name for this but I can’t think of it. Ask for things, help, shout outs, whatevs. The more others talk about you the quicker you’ll rise. Sometimes they’ll say no. If so ask them when they’ll say yes. They give you advice. Do it. Then ask again. Bottom line, partners are key. Do favors for them. Maybe produce a free video. Paying to advertise is very effective..... occasionally. Stick with it. Stick with it. stick with it. Do all of this knowing that Google or Facebook or whatever will most likely change its algorithms and screw you right when you’re making it. Bummer. From there you’re on your own.
  12. I think it’s pretty awesome you’ve got a write up in newsshooter. Great work. Don’t let the glory get to your head.
  13. Was there an official update that addressed highlight roll off? I hadn’t seen that. I’ve been waiting all this time for @Sage to help me with that. ?
  14. Where did you get that? I have been looking for almost that exactly.
  15. What happened to Jon? Been wondering where he went to.
  16. Downtown SD baby!!! Kaylee. Tons of inspirational stuff for me. Thank you for sharing. Much kudos for your excellent locations and sets. Great locations and sets can make your life easy.
  17. Download and register Resolve 16 Studio. Use whichever product serial number you were originally given. Install Resolve 16 Studio and use your Resolve 15 activation key. Done son.
  18. This was posted in the other thread already but beautiful nonetheless. This film has caught my eye and is the reason I'm interested in the cam at all. Great promo.
  19. I think many will relate to this, as they probably had to do the same. But I made an entire feature film with the 7D. In the desert. We did not have monitors in those days. No zebras. No focus peaking. No IBIS. No autofocus. The worlds worst codec. I knew the shortcomings. Accepted them. And just did it. I honestly didn't even know better. Many times my head would be down in the hot sand trying to frame a shot looking through the little screen. You know what? I was thrilled. Before that the biggest sensor I had was 1/3". We are spoiled. Clearly the P4K has shortcomings, but it is pretty awesome. You can focus on what it doesn't have, or you can accept the shortcomings and go create content. Or you can choose a different camera altogether. For me it's either the P4K or the GH5. I'm loving what I see from the S1. But it will be quite a while before/if I go to that system. For now my camera is the P4K. I look at it as an amazing camera with false color and focus peaking and an amazing codec that has horrible battery life and that also happens to have a screen that I can choose to utilize, or not. I'll probably work on a power solution at some point and get one of these upcoming evf's. It's good to point out shortcomings because it helps us make decisions. But there isn't that one camera. Never will be. You pick your horse. Accept the shortcomings. And go create content.
  20. I would be it all in favor of a new PK4. I could also see them introducing a full frame sensor camera of some sort. Maybe also an audio field recorder as well. However I'm kind of assuming this nap is going to be all about resolve. Love these articles and the new you Andrew.
  21. Yes, but if you're going back and forth on different machines this is a pain.
  22. You know what?.... I just had a vision. I'm pretty sure BM is going to address this issue of database organization with the version they announce on Monday. It's gonna be sweet.
