  1. in short - use editready to transcode. finally a solution!!!
  2. so, no fix? mac hardware issue? but this also happens on a 2015 macbook pro 13''. that one has 5th gen i5
  3. and when you simply open the files in quicktime, they look the same too?
  4. what in the world...... okay, i knew it wasn't the camera but what the hell... thank you for you time regardless! also, do you see a thumbnail for the h265 file? because i dont, it's just black
  5. right, sorry: 2017 macbook pro 13" base model 2,3ghz i5, intel iris 640 graphics, now running Mojave but the same thing happens on high sierra, files tested on various video players, same problem exists across all of them. my go to is quicktime and vlc of course. Happens across every possible setting and color profile, its the codec thats bringing up a problem. here are the files - https://we.tl/t-v7qkyPp7oO , same scene recorded in h265 and h264. h264 is as it should be, h265 is crushed. i'm enclosing a screengrab of what i'm seeing on my end. the h265 files look fine on a windows machine running quad core i5 and a gtx 770. i suspect it's got something to do with the macbook not having a dedicated graphics card. You mentioned you used imacs, those have graphics chips, im curious wether you see both files equally
  6. Has anyone encountered this phenomenon with the fuji xt3 hevc files having crushed blacks and clipped highlights on macbook pro? I've tested it with 2017 and 2015 13" macbook pros. It happens in every single player, I've tried like 10, and also in all the editing programs. Tried resolve with video data levels set to full, overriding color space in final cut etcetc. I can't find anyone online talking about it for some weird reason. I have spent a massive amount of time on this issue, I'm starting to think it's mac hardware related but then again it's weird the hevc files from an iPhone look fine. Hevc files are flawless with correct luma values on windows... h264 looks good on both systems
  7. what is the exact workflow here though? i just import my HLG footage in final cut, and then simply drop that alexa x2 lut on it and grade it from there? or do i have to tell final cut to interpret the footage in some particular way blabla
  8. it seems to me that complaints about the codec not being editable come from people who have never touched the camera. i can edit that 500 mbit/s footage on my i5 (!), gtx770, 8gb (!) ram pc in realtime. i even edit it on my 13'' macbook pro in final cut using proxies with zero lag.
  9. i registered just to like your comment. my thoughts exactly. i own the 1dx mark II as well (like many, i normally shoot on sony a7s, a7s2, fs700 etc). a couple of Andrew's pros made me giggle a bit. color flatter talent? you mean to say that a colder grade would be unflattering? lighting, make-up and distortion free focal lenght flatter talent. p.s. i even think the sony looks better in the first example for instance. next, it's 1,38x crop, which is closer to 1,4x than 1,3x, making it more similar to super 35 than full frame. also, it's far from having good dynamic range, it's decent at best, and there is no way any third party "log" profile made in canon's picture profile editor could come close to genuine canon's c-log. flattened neutral profile isn't log, it just lifts shadows, you cant make log with a curve in a rudimentary pp editor, it offers zero highlight gain. the a7s is the one with impressive dynamic range, AND it has proper log. you can overexpose it 4 (!!!!) stops before it falls apart. canon is a goner at 2 stops over. it's a great camera with great straight out color, just like sony is way better at other things. but the fanboyism is strong here. especially seeing how you initially bashed the camera without even having had tried it. nobody forces you to update your sony gear, it's an investment in your creative nature, not in your resale value. just because there is something newer, doesnt mean you gonna get shot if you dont get it. i still use the original a7s and it's more than enough if you dont shoot high end commercial stuff + (and even then you could manage with an external recorder).
