  1. Thanks! It really is worth buying, skin tones just seem to get such a nice, beautiful separation, color-wise, from the rest of the image, and I like the way saturation is handled throughout the exposure range. All of the shots I shared were shot on the S1, a mix of internal 10-bit VLOG 4k60, 24, open-gate 6k, and the shots of the dude are all ProRes raw from the ninja v.
  2. Thanks Sage! What I do to simplify the workflow in FCP is to add the full stack of pre and post LUTs that I need, make sure they're all in the proper order just once, and then I simply save the whole thing as a custom effects preset, so that I can just drop my single "S1 Alexa 24p" effect onto a clip and it's 95% of the way there. Definitely makes it much easier to use, and I've also been able to share this effects preset file with my assistant editors when they're handling my footage, so that I don't even have to try and explain the order or have to make them read your explainer pdf. As
  3. @Sage I'm still absolutely loving this LUT, and it just keeps getting better and better! I use it for pretty much every single project I shoot, S1 for A-cam and GH5 for b-cam, but lately, combined with anamorphic and pro res raw, it has felt extra tasty. I just love what it does to greens, especially. These screenshots are some standouts from the past couple weeks. Thanks for all your hard work! I recommend your Alexa LUT to all my lumix-shooting friends
  4. @kyethanks for the feedback! I'm definitely not trying to aim any future content toward beginners, really. There's enough of it out there already. And thanks for the story-based idea, in a future episode I've planned to talk about how I approach an interview with the edit already in mind, what sorts of questions — in my experience — often elicit the best responses, and I would like to do an editing episode as well, as far as how I approach the whittling-down process and find a hopefully clear arc of beginning, middle, and end, I think a lot of that stuff can be a little mysterious for a lot of
  5. @UncleBobsPhotographyyeah I was going back and forth about whether or not I should use music, I'm so used to always adding it to client testimonials and marketing spots in my professional work but it feel a little unnecessary for YouTube. Thanks for the feedback!
  6. @Mark Romero 2 That's a great tip, thank you! Better than what I was trying, leaning an overstuffed pillow in my chair with a focus chart taped to it lol. But yes, you nailed the sound issues, and I agree, in hindsight the music is a little much, and my air conditioner was super loud and wouldn't turn off... but I knew if I didn't just sit down and record the thing, right then and there, while my inspiration and motivation were aligned, I probably wouldn't have done it at all. Thanks for the feedback, and for watching!
  7. @zerocool22 You should definitely share it when you get it going, I'd love to glean some of that wisdom (I mean, who wouldn't!) I've got 10 years to do it!
  8. This light looks like an absolute beast, I'm glad I haven't picked up an Aputure 600D yet! 1.2kW LED, this sucker is BRIGHT. More info here: http://www.nanlux.com/en/h-col-175.html
  9. @zerocool22Good for you, man! What kind of content are you aiming toward?
  10. @mercerThanks for checking it out, man! Glad to see you around on here, I've missed reading your comments these past months! @MrSMW I totally get it, I hate the sound of my own voice too haha. One thing that is maybe a little disheartening about this whole me-centric social media era, which I have been thinking about lately, is how, at least amongst my social media circle of family and friends, I could post the most beautiful, gorgeous, epic, amazing content, say it's shot on an Alexa 65 with Cooke anamorphics, you name it, and nobody cares at all. The client work I'm most proud of, if I
  11. I see a tons people complaining about the marketing/hype machine that is the "filmmaking sector" of YouTube, and I hate a lot of those clichés too. That being said, it has been in the back of my mind to try out for a while, so yesterday I had some free time and I finally decided to give it a go! Turns out it's actually a lot harder to film yourself and talk right to camera than I anticipated (I very quickly abandoned my plans to shoot it anamorphic, focusing on my S1, all by myself, was just way too difficult) and the whole process took me far longer to shoot and edit than I expected.

  13. What raw controla did you feel like you were missing out on? I haven't used pro Res raw on an actual project yet, and have just shot a few random little test clips, but fcp has white balance, iso and exposure control, isn't that the trifecta? I guess some sort of highlight recovery mode like resolve has would be pretty cool.
  14. Quality is great, pretty fast too, I used to use it pretty extensively transcoding Samsung NX1 and NX500 h.265 files into Pro Res. LUTs can be baked in, it's a solid piece of software with regular updates, they keep it running smooth.
  15. Edit ready is my go-to transcode software.
