  1. Nope. Stock settings. And never crashed at stock settings. My overclocking is just from today... for fun, to see how the softwares react in better clock speeds... Premiere pro loves the boost clocked, but not the HT from Intel. This is what i conclude.
  2. What is getting on my nerves right now with my computer is the live playback in after effects... Wayyyyyyyyyy tooooooooo loooonnnngggggg ... Impossible to work at 1/2 without having to wait... In premiere pro, no problem as CUDA seems to work effortlessly. Photoshop and other softs don't have any problem... The biggest problem is After effects that takes so much time to work with... Complex 4K DCI projects with average 50 to 60 layers of little effects of objects to move. Is there anytip to edit faster with fluid live playbacks in after effects ?
  3. at home, i can run Resolve, open a project, see the timeline etc and when i'm going to pick a media up, it crashes without advertising... Simply crashes. On this computer i have some 5DIII RAW files, h264 files, RED RAW 4K DCI, some blackmagic files CDNG and prores, Panavision Genesys files, Sony F55 etc etc etc even Canon mxf files. No problem with previous versions of Davinci resolve... The fact only happens with the Beta 14th version.
  4. Don Kotlos : you were right. CPU Z gives me 4.5 Ghz max... And it seems to be logical : 100 mhz x 45 multiplier i've put in the bios... I'm not an overclocker ... lol ... I've just tried it to see how it would affect the rendering times in premiere pro... I've seen that HT disactivated was giving a better performance than activated... 4 cores and 4 threads better than 4 cores and 8 threads. So i can deduce that premiere pro is not optimized for a multithreaded able processor... If i am not wrong. I'll upgrade when threadripper would be out for several months to have some better feedback. I'm looking to have 128 GB of RAM, a NVME samsung SSD pcie evo 960 for the OS (120GB), another one for the adobe cache (250GB), another one to store the project files temporarily (500GB) , a 1060 OC 6GB. Graphic cards are way too expensive to my tastes... don't know if a 1080 worth the price when i only edit on premiere pro, after effects and resolve. The other things i do are basic sound design and some photoshop... I think a 1060 6B is the right spot. ? no ? My GTX580 will be missed... Such a good graphic card. But now i don't know which platform i'll choose... X399 or X299... AMD looks to have a great flagship CPU at the same price as the 7900X ... Time will tell.
  5. Hi 2 All, i'm about to change my computer as i think my machine is just a bit slow to edit some footages coming from different cameras... My actual machine is : I7 3770K 16GB Corsair RAM SSDs GTX 580 I've seen the new AMD solutions : Ryzen 1800X and the future threadrippers. What about the motherboards coming with them and the support of the X399 chipset ? ... Intel won't react to AMD ? Prices will be revised for Intel ? i think putting 3500 euros max into a brand new computer. But... I've just overclocked for the first time my old 3770K and come to a stable 5.76 gHz performance ... I find it a bit strange no ? Is it possible ? How could i check the real frequency ? In fact, i've reduced by 2 the time to encode a footage with complex timeline and lumetri colors from stock frequency... using premiere pro. Overclocking seems to be a good choice to wait for a better performer... but which one ? How could i benchmark my computer performance to see if a ryzen or a 7900X machine would do better ? is there any standard known footage to encode to see the time your machine gets the full encoding to compare it to a cpu database ?
  6. Got Sony xavc files... bizarre problem... Will try the OpenCL function in place of CUDA to see what happens.
  7. Hi, i've just installed the free version of Resolve 14 and no problem with the installation but when i want to add medias from the media pool the software crashes... My computer : Windows 10 I7 3700K 16 GB RAM Corsair Geforce GTX 580 SSD No problem with every version before that... Any one for a solution ? Any one in this case that solved the problem ? Thx 4 all.
  8. Oliver Daniel i truly understand you... i know what you're meaning with the FS5. 5DIII Raw files are way too heavy for me and difficult to manage on some big movies. Good to shoot sometimes with but not a camera i like to carry with me now since i got my A7SII. Here is a great camera... A7SII. With a powerbank and a good lightmeter with you this camera makes such fantastic things. 8 bits ok... we all know this... What i like is the Slog and its great latitude in contrasty situations and its 24x36mm size... Big shots with this cam. And the slomos are great when light is enough. Great 120 fps even with a 2X coefficient. A 16-35 2.8 does the job well for me with this 2x high fps mode. What we can expect from an A7SIII will disappoint us i think... i think this won't be 10 bits... And a 10 bits hdmi output will disappoint me also as what i like from this camera is shooting ultra light, gimbal or zacuto shoulder rig and that's all... I've shot with 7" screens on the rig etc etc and i really don't like it... Too much equipment ruins creativity... Personal point of view of course. The GH5 looks great to my eyes too... And this little beast has made some charms to me... I used to shoot with a GH2 and have been blown away with its inner qualities. The GH5 has a v-log mode and high frame rates... tempting features. But, micro 4 thirds with native electronic lenses i don't like it, and metabones adapter with EF or other mounts that's what i used on the GH2 and sometimes had problems... Why don't you use that fantastic A7SII ? have it from its exit right now and still have no problems with a cheap commlite adapter, damped with black cloth inside it... My advice in your case would be stay with an A7SII till an A9S comes out !!!!! ;-) As you know the tool is secondary and that A7SII ticks a lot of what i need to make it my A-cam on most of my projects. Why would i need to upgrade or change this lil baby ?!!!!!! My A-cam for little projects like this : Trailer for a drama company. My 0.02 euros. :-)
  9. actually have this config : i7 3770k, 16GB RAM, GTX 580 and SSD for OS. A good machine truly. These Ryzen look good to me. But the i7 7700k looks better than the ryzen 1800 in perfs... no ? And it's less money too ... Am i wrong ? If i want to upgrade and have a good gain using After effects and premiere pro, does this AMD Ryzen is the better choice ? I'll upgrade RAM to 64 GB and a M.2 HDD for Adobe Cash, maybe not the GTX580 that seems good for the tasks. What do you think ? Here is a config i've done : Should i go to an AMD Ryzen config ?
  10. Hi, I've got an A7SII. There is nothing really disapointing in using it actually. The only drawbacks i find are the battery life and the 8 bits codec... But to be honest the camera has followed me on several films and it has done the job pretty well. For the battery life i use a power bank via USB and Voila. 8 bits codec is cheap... If the WB fails on set and exposure is not done correctly... wow... crappy camera. But using a colormeter every shot and exposure meter too and this camera does a good job. I always use Slog3, knowing its weaknesses... What i expect from an A7SIII is not necessarily a bigger sensor, but a faster with stacked memory. Rolling shutter on the A7SII has never worried me by now, but i understand it can be a pain for some persons. What i expect is also a better codec, 10 bits higher bitrate... but i know Sony a bit and the A7SIII will be a "for everybody camera"... And 8 bits 100 mbps is great for everybody... Us, guys who want to buy a decent camera will not use that kind of a camera to shoot a commercial... therefore 8 bits 100mbps is average good to shoot cats and ducks on water... Those of us who want a more serious camera will go on the FS5 or FS7, more pro oriented... Sony won't shoot them in their foot... A7SIII won't have 10 bits chroma in my opinion... even if i truly want it. Then what i want is an USB port like the A7SII. 240fps and 120fps 1080 Better menus Better IBIS if possible... A price that is related to their targeted market. Not crazy price... Better AF even if i'm always Manual... lol... i think i've never used the AF on my A7SII... not once !!! I am canon equipped for lenses... Better EVF if possible Voila !!!!!! hope this will be tomorrow morning here in France...
  11. Amen !!!! Oliver Daniel you're damn rignt !!! Camera is just a tool. It helps when your tool is a good quality one but you can even tell stories with iphones or "shitty" cameras... How many movies miss the focus ? How many movies have some bad camera movements ? How many films have big problems with technique itself ? Some big movies i've seen have sometimes these mistakes... and so what ? When the story is here and talents too... you have a good movie. That's all folks.
  12. to me : - Aspect ratio - 24 fps with motion blur associated - Shallow depth of field - camera movements - Music used - colors and lights and the most of it : Actors and story. Here's a little joke i've made with friends that uses some codes of what i call a cinematic video : Slow motions here to be a bit parodic... And you'll notice a hommage to Marion Cotillard somewhere in the video... That couldn't be more cinematic with this !!!!! lol
  13. Thank you man !!!! this is right for the bullets. I could have add it... but big work for such a little video. I'll give a try to the soft you told me. thanks for your comments. It goes right into my heart.
