  1. I would say it depends, I can certainly see it backfire, but also if it's a problem then I don't see it as an overreaction to have no phone policy, at lest during shooting or right before/after.

    Due to the way some ppl use social media, you could actually make them less focused if they can't check there phone notifications, which is kinda weird concept for me since I don't have that addiction.

    At some places it's fine to check facebook during work since that increases productivity, at least according to a study that I never bothered to verify or find. I can imagine how professional that would look through the window tho.

  2. If your monitor can't display 24p and goes black does not mean the graphics card can't output it, but it usually means it won't output it unless you force it to, since the monitor reports that it can't display it anyway.
    You can make custom resolution in nVidia control panel and I think AMD have same option. I even think Intel allows making it.

  3. Get a proper application to play video files in (for example MPC-HC) and a good renderer (like madVR). If you still have problems getting smooth playback you are doing something wrong.

    You do not need a special graphics card or decklink to get proper framerates. You just need one powerful enough, which varies depending on what you do.

  4. Highlight and shadow rollof is going to have a huge effect on motion blur. Thins that usually looks stuttering is dark objects like lamp posts against a bright background like sky. If you look closely you can see it has 180* shutter but half of it is so faint it's almost invisible. So what you end up with is a lot higher "shutter speed" than what you originally thought. So you would need to overcompensate with say 1/40 or even 1/30 to keep those parts looking smooth. But then other parts that have lower contrast ends up being too smooth, maybe.

    Since old film cameras sometimes had a rotating shutter the leading and trailing "edge" would be somewhat faded and not as abrupt which I guess would lead to a smoother motion. Just like the filter thingy mentioned in the thread.


    I know Servers, the things that hums along in data centers and never break, right? Well no, they do break and what is considered essential is the ability to repair them and replace parts along with the support to back it up.
    Same with cameras, I know a pro sports shooter that had his gear held up for a big game and Canon had reps waiting with gear in hand for him to do his job.

    Now I would not expect same level of support for consumer equipment, but iMac Pro to not even be fixable?

    Very glad they are integrating Fusion into the main workflow! Hopefully this brings advancements in Rolling Shutter repair and other effects.

    I hope thy use Fusion engine in Resolve, it's so far superior compared and it reads way more formats than Resolve. Although the one or two formats Resolve can read is not hard to beat.
    But I would settle for a Resolve that don't crash or lock up for 5 sec, that would be an epic improvement.


    *edit* also Nikon better release something useful!

  7. Just contrast it to the term "surge". Even a 5sec short is almost insignificant amount of energy compared to what is stored in the battery, I was just referring to the common perception that shorting a battery must draw a "huge amount of power" compared to normal use since it draws max amount of current.

    A surge, even if it where a lot higher current during startup does not really draw a huge amount of power overall. But as with shorting a battery wear and tear does come into the calculation.
    My point was that surge is insignificant  overall unless you use it for 5sec every time, and by that point it's normal startup time gonna be more significant anyway. And probably hospital bill due to epilepsy.

    Well since a lot of electrical items surge when you turn them on I doubt there is a huge gain to be had turning them off.

    100% incorrect and stem from the same belief that shorting a battery momentarily drains it in any significant way. (which it does not btw).
    In short the surge will have to be huge to have any long term impact in overall draw. Even turning off a modern cars engine for a few seconds is worth it today.

    Who gives a S××× about a Led LCD when you have OLED screen?

    Mostly cause you get burnin with anything lasting more than 5sec, which is even worse in HDR mind you.

  10. And PC instead of mac for good skintones.
    Nope that is not a joke, we had two setups one PC and one mac feeding video to ATEM for reduncancy. Using QLab on MAC and MPC-HC on PC.
    The image was pretty much identical except for a green tint from the mac. Just about noticeable side by side
    Oh and mac can't do 50p so it stuttered slightly too.

  11. There is no way that is not temporal NR
    It looks to be pretty decent at handling noise without color breakdown but it's no longer apples to apples comparison.
    Now if it's aimed at the "baseline" it might not be a bad thing since NR is very hard to get right. But what happens if we turn it off(if we can)? Can't really say cleaner 20 times and that makes it so.

    That was using 4kdownloader - does anyone have another tool they'd recommend? 

    I use ANT video downloader plugin for FireFox. It uses FFmpeg to combine the file, you can ether install it yourself or have the plugin download it for you. On FF Quantum it's a little different so you might wanna test both. I use FireFox Portable from portableapps.com so you can mock around all you want without breaking anything.
    You might wanna try something like h264ify to get H264 instead of VP9 from youtube.
