  1. Follow up to my post about upscaling and de-interlacing with QTGMC and then playing with Midtone detail in negative values. Picked this frame since it's pretty classic DV and bad lighting. First frame is the original DV (in 720p timeline), then the upscaled frame and #3 the upscaled frame with -50 mid/detail, slightly lowered gain and lift and lowest possible glow. Screencap of Resolve at the end. Not really something magic, still not great, but definitely better.
  2. Last summer I managed to salvage old tapes before they went too bad. Didn't try to make the footage look pro or have any special "look", but to make new HD masters to save for the future (=pure sentimental reasons). I tried AI scaling, but was very unsatisfied, look horrible. This thread is amazing and I went with this workflow: https://forum.blackmagicdesign.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=109259&sid=eb50d17426119095ce9038dba8e7c6a6 Good upscaling without artifacts or false details. Also the best (software) de-interlacer I've ever tried (I tried almost everyone there is), so many hidden details and perceived resolution that would disappear with other solutions. So with a better codec, in standard HD resolutions (with square pixel aspect ratio) I retouched corrupt frames and did gentle colour and contrast balancing. My favourite tool in Resolve is "Midtone detail" with a negative value of -25 to -50, really helps with the harshness of the format. No need to work on the sharpness or the contrast for my needs for a soft retro-ish presentation.
  3. Pretty good comparison here:
  4. Really well shot and choreographed, but a little too close to the action sometimes, it felt a little tight in frame at times. I really wanted the camera to take a step or two back so I could see more of the choreography Did you shot it all in 4k or mixed with HD for better RS? DoF didn't look so shallow, which I appreciate (I like to see things in focus, haha!) What focal lengths did you use? How about the grading? Did you shoot log? Internal or external? Really like to know if it held up well on the internal codec in log
  5. Reviving this thread since I'm guessing I'm not the only one loosing money during these crazy times and want to get an "old" camera to have fun with for cheap.
  6. Agree, too much politics nowadays. Sure, politics can fuel art, but let the art speak for itself at least.
  7. This is pretty cool. Original still looks the best, but still. Making of:
  8. Slightly off topic, but I think Steven Soderbergh is trying to make the RED look like his iPhone ?
  9. Correct, the song dates back at least to the 17th century (more likely the 16th) and the writer is unknown. It's one of the most performed songs, not just Irish folk singers/bands, but also rock, metal and punk and all have slightly different lyrics. Molly is sometimes called Jenny for instance. Thin Lizzy made it popular back in the 70s with their rock cover and basically started the whole thing of combining Irish tunes with rock which sparkled The Pogues and the creation of celtic punk which lated led to Flogging Molly and Dropkick Murphys.
  10. Everything from Irish folk to anime intros xD Anything with passion doing their thing with something to say so that excludes basically everything mainstream where songs are written by someone else using the same sound/beat library as everyone else and processing the poor fame craving younglings' voices to bits because they can't sing.
  11. That would be nice, more time to get another camera and do a quick shoot on monday
  12. My camera broke last night during filming, can't even access the footage xD That's what you get for 20 euros xD
  13. I'm shooting today xD just waiting for my fiancée to come home ?
  14. looking good everyone. I just realised I had the wrong end date (thought it was the 26th) and planned to shoot with my fiancée on Wednesday afternoon (only day we have time since we both work shifts). Maybe if I skip dinner and sit in front of my computer all evening I might be able to post in time on one of the cameras ?
