  1. Share the original file please.
  2. If a gopro can handle those situations it means it does not require log profile. Can you share a short clip?
  3. Poorly. F-Log curve is like SLOG2 on Sony's +1EV (check lutcalc). V-LOG curve on the other hand is like SLOG3/LogC/Cineon curve. F-Gamut naturally shifts to green which should be corrected with gamut mapping in post. V-Gamut do not shifts to magenta or green. So technically this "use FLOG to Eterna" Filmconvert simulation on VLOG is a creative choice of grading nothing more.
  4. Looks awesome, and grades beautifully. Can we have low light and 1080p 120 10bit samples too?
  5. Run for you life Max! On this forum the same 6 people arguing about the same stuff in every topic. You will have to explain yourself after every comparison you do (you dont want to know what people talked about you after the BMPCC4k-Z7-A73-XT3-EosR comparison video...). Im following you since 2014 and I think you are doing a great job. Avoid these "experts" if you want to sleep well. Ofc there are some people here who knows a lot and can give you proper advice, but nowdays they are watching from the shadows ...
  6. What was the camera and settings? My take on thiz:
  7. P4000 = GTX 1070 2x GTX 1070 = 1x Radeon VII It is cheaper to buy another nvidia card, the performance will be almost the same. But it's highly depends on card support, right now i dont think Radeon VII has full resolve support. Unfortunetaly neither of these options will give you 1080 24 fps rendering while using Temporal NR (Better) with 5 frames averaging. You will get around 20-22 fps
  8. It was more complex tone mapping. Shadows/Highlights, gamut mapping, contrast, saturation, curves, noise reduction...
  9. This is a hard one. If you overexpose those highlights, it's gone. Try to grade for the interior in this case If you expose properly, then you can do the HDR style grade. On you linked samples the guys probably shoot RAW photos in multiexposure using sliders, then stiched them together. You can download your graded examples from here And here are the screengrabs:
  10. You did not shared anything. Please share those files
  11. Your grade was already perfect! Here is my grade:
  12. Can you please share some original files from the most problematic shots?
  13. Why does DR matter so much? we are far beyond the level of necessary DR for content creation. Most of you guys want 15-16-17+ stops DR because you want "Arri like" highlight roll-off. You can achieve very nice roll-off even with a GoPro Hero 7 with proper grading: (in this case: 10 stops DR from the camera in 14+ stops environment)
  14. Long time ago i tested my 5D Mark II against my a6300 and a rented BMPCC In the comparison i made all cameras was shooting ETTR with their best available (raw, slog2) settings As you may know from the technical threads at magiclanter.fm the max available dynamic range for 5D2 raw @iso100 ettr is 11.7 stops The BMPCC and the a6300 were both 2 stops better in the shadows which means they had around 13.7 stops. It was noisy as hell, so im not talking about usable dynamic range. The a6300 was cleaner, the BM had more detail but also more noise / grain. After further testing i would say all of the cameras i was talked about has 1.5 stops less usable (i mean noise free, or able boost up with noise reduction) dynamic range. So: 5D: 10 stops, BM: 12 stops, a6300: 12 stops
  15. Does the AF works now with the Sigma 18-35 f1.8 or with other adapted lenses?
  16. Do you guys can see the same colors after uploading to this page? I had to bump up the saturation almost +50% to get the same results after uploading the graded image here. So it's completly oversaturated in resolve, and looks ok here right now:
  17. This stuff is awesome! The results from the SLOG2/s-gamut3.cine is gorgeous. The highlight recovery is insane with ACES, thank you!
  18. That's just the in camera temporal noise reduction. Why dont you try it yourself in real world scenario? Worrying about the noise while lens cap is on is silly...
  19. If i were you i would use VLOG-L and ISO400 or ISO2500. Everything in between can be decided in post. But this requires a bit of colorgrading skill. If you are not using VLOG-L, use Auto ISO. The contrasty profile will hide the noise. And expose for the final look.
  20. For the GH5s the dual native ISO values are 400 and 2500. Technically you underexposed ISO400 by 1,66 stops. In pitch black. What do you expect? ISO1600 is clean, because it's overexposed ISO2500. Oh, try HFR 240 fps with VLOG-L and ISO1250. And dont forget to tell me which trashcan will you use to dump the camera 😛
  21. Thanks for checking, this was Resolve's default export for h265. Now it's corrected to 100Mbps
  22. Zoom in and hit play. There is the difference. I created a sample myself from my old 5D2 RAW footage. Real codec killer due to the heavy moire and aliasing all over the image. If you zoom in and hit play you can see the ProRes holds up much better. But actually the h265 smoothens out some of the smearing and moire, so it's actually better looking 😄 h265 100Mbps vs ProRes 422HQ
  23. These results are shocking for me 😮 h265 > ProRes ?! Insane. I think i will redo this test with my own RAW footage.
  24. With ridiculous amount of crop there is a difference in texture detail. "B" is ProRes (left) and "A" is h265. (right) Thanks for the test!
  25. And none of you can figure out why this is happening. Beautiful. The AF is reliable till -3EV (with A73), and live view exposure counts. Regarding to backlight situation if you go below -3EV the AF can struggle even in broad daylight. The test is simple, use SLOG2, dial down to -2EV exposure and try to use AF. It will be unreliable. If you dial up to +2EV everything will work perfectly. In backlit situation the auto exposure metering is unreliable, if you push the exposure up manually above +2EV the AF will work perfectly. Side note: in backlit situation i recommend to shoot with zebras turned on and set 46 +-5. Set your zebras to your subject, and you can avoid noise and still have some room in the highlights. (46IRE means +1EV for SLOG2 middle grey) If you are using auto metering, and set it to +2EV, it will be still underexposed.
