    Have you first (right-click) Change Clip Speed... ad change it, and then in Inspector do Retime and Scaling > Optical Flow, and Speed Warp (all in Edit page)? My MacMini 2018 has Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB, and it is also lousy GPU, not much better than yours on MBP, but it works (slowly, very slowly).

    It's no longer there (since DR 15.2.2). But you can find Duplicata Current Timeline in the Edit page > click on timeline > Edit (in the menu). See link.
  3. Another blow to GoT: link. A coffee cup left on the table.
  4. Probably true. But anyway, the video (even so called documentary) could be a mixture of the real and the ilusion (in technical terms). An example: I work with 3 teams of my students - within the course on "Citizen Journalism and Video Reporting" - on some videos: topics are volunteers action (cleaning the neibourghood, helping hendicaped or older people, and similar). Students are supposed to shoot with their mobile phones, both the theme itself and to shoot them shooting the theme. Another team of students (and myself) also shoot in parallel with "pro" cameras (P4K, Canon 200C, Canon XC10). And in post, 80% of materials are from these "pro" cameras. They give us - technically and educationally - better shots. The general public on TV will see only the mobiles shooting. ๐Ÿ˜‡
  5. It is some cheap (Hama) shoulder support. I bought it 2-3 years ago for some 10-15 euros. Now I can find only on this site (and it is 40 euros ๐Ÿคจ; it seems no longer produced so the price is way up). Retractable and easy to put into the bag, mounts in 5 seconds. Another example for shoulder support: And another one, when I want to go wild. ๐Ÿ˜
  6. Nice rig. I just prefer to keep it simple as often as I can. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  7. Why shoud anyone "has to accept" someone's style? I could accept that some DP is trying to have his or her "style" or "signature" (and everybode has a "signature", that is a lousy metaphor for "being creative"), but I could also see that "style" to be wrong or bad. Or, more pricisely, in this case I hardly can "see" anything, let alone a "style". Especially when he arrogantly accused viewers and their TVs for this failure. Real creators are humble and attentive both to their craft and their public. So, I wouldn't be so sure that this DP "obviously knows what he's doing" - he was a DP of an entertainment TV series broadcasted by Net, and he should be aware that - just techically, nor "artistically" - the picture quality depends on many other conditions. If he did that as a feature film for theater, then the case would be different.
  8. โ‰ˆ 360 min. And I was wrong before (I was looking at my CF2 128GB card). So, 4K DCI (4096x2160), BRAW Q0, 1TB โ‰ˆ 150 min. (Or ProRes 4K DCI HQ 1TB โ‰ˆ 170 min.) My apology. In theory one can make almost 2 feature movies with 1TB; in practise, for 1 feature movie 5-10 TB. (And if Kubrick resurects and starts shooting with the P4K, he would need 50 TB.)
  9. 4K DCI (4096x2160), BRAW Q0, 1TB โ‰ˆ 30-35 min. (Or ProRes 4K DCI HQ 1TB โ‰ˆ 30-35 min.) Start to reckon from here.
  10. Ronin S: heavy (1.8 Kg); Moza Air 2: heavy (1.6 Kg); Moza AirCross: light (0.9 Kg); Moza AirCross 2: light (0.95 Kg). All work or could work with the P4K. - And my own disclamer: I rarely use gimbals, only when absolutely necessary; they are generally PITA and waste of time; I always prefer some shoulder rig, ENG style, when weight is expected and even welcome (gives more stability).
  11. I'm also interested in the Moza AirCross. Here the P4K is listed in "Supported Cameras". Let us know your take on it. (And the new announced Moza AirCross 2 sounds interesting, too. Except its details are not known yet.)
  12. Now the only thing is to make a killer band. It might speed things. I'm in. ๐Ÿคช
  13. So true. XC10 is a good camera (within its own limits, like any other gear). And when those two clowns (Chris and Jordan) were engaged to make "reviews" for DPR, I stopped to follow the site. (I should have done that earlier, however.) From @Andrew Reid to them, a clear path of decline. Now DRP is just in business of marketing newest gear.
  14. I also have Laowa 7.5/2 (for MFT, so it is 15mm equiv.). A good lens, I would say, it is rectilinear, but, of course, it is necessary to pay attention to the angle of view. Generally Laowa lenses are well built.

    Yes. I'm on DR 16b1 already a week. No issues whatsoever. (MacMini 2018)
