  1. i think you have to explaind more about the project.
    The first things you can do is watch good documentaries, watch some docs from chris marker, herzog and others documentalist.

    other things you can do is to start filming sketch, get your camera to the locations to do a "camera block"(idk how it is on english but is basically just try shoots on the location).

    do your homework and investigate, do preview interviews to the characters from your interview before you shot.

    Are you generating optimised media and using the render cache feature? If not then Resolve will not use the GPU much. Resolve uses the CPU for playback and it will struggle with highly compressed media. 

    yea i used optimized media, but i got like 8% of my cpu, well i think for now there are no codec that use the gpu so effeclty


  3. Hi, i want to know what codecs are playback by gpu on premiere or resolve.

    i have to work with too mutch tracks and clips and i get lagged with my cpu at 100% and my gpus practically do nothing lol.

    i got an rx 570 8gb and a ryzen 5 1600, 16gb ram ddr4 and ssd storage for the cache and the files.

    any codec will increase performance and use the gpu would be apreciate.

    This book is very old and only covers the very very basics, but I believe it's the most well-established text on the subject, or was when I purchased it:


    It's more a theoretical and aesthetic approach than a technical one. I should dig up my old copy.

    I think on the technical side, the Ripple tutorial is well-regarded. 

    that book is the best you can get, it have a lot of technical info about screen, rooms, color gamut, profiles, ambient, hardware and more to set up a pro color grading workspace and how to work with it.

    the theorical info is really nice too, so for start in color is the best way to go.

    but, this book is aimed for multiple software, that its not bad. but i suggest you to buy this book, and then get an online courses for your software from scratch.

    if you go for davinci, check it out too for the manual, and certificed online training centers.

    then, i suggest to visit the liftgamagrain forum, and facebook colorist group to get fast answers to your questions.

    reverse eingenieer is a good practice if you want to training your eyes and skills.

    Do color grading to random shots, and then save and look in weeks- months after to see how your color knowledge has been grown and your "clinical eye" start to get more 



    that are my advice to get into color grading, sorry for my english too, hope it was useful info for you.

    Watch this video and stop saying that Pocket4K is not сinematic. In the hands of the master with taste and good lenses, even the GH5 is beautiful. Otherwise, it is too early for you to have such a camera, learn to shoot first :)

    Shot on GH5 using Lomo anamorphic and spherical lenses (50mm roundfront and +1 +2 diopters in a few shots). Graded with FilmConvert using KD 5207 Vis3.



    daaamn thats its just beautiful
    that is the kind of cinematography that inspire to me and im very happy that it could can be done with 1300-2000$ cameras.
    We are living in a good time for cinematography, specially for whos work with a low budget.

    If you don't mind the size then this will be cheaper than the Samsung T5.

    All you need is an enclosure (lots out there so look around, as you might find cheaper & be careful, as you should be getting Read/Write speeds of about 400 min - should be over 500 if it's a good enclosure) & the Samsung SSD 860 evo (has the best TBW or lifespan), there are other brands which might be cheaper. This solution will be cheaper, but bigger than the T5 - that's why the T5 is so much more expensive.

    I've gone this way for external storage (also can double as hard drive to boot from), but didn't bother with an enclosure & just got a cable - a lot cheaper & faster read/write speeds than the T5 (mine gets well over 500 for R/W speeds).


    i would start looking, here in my country sell t5 has double of the price, so the sdd and enclosure would be awesome.

    my only concern its maybe bus powered is a requeriment for record on bmpcc4k and if enclosoure will power it up.

  7. try to triplicate your footage and play with color dodge, i have do it years ago with 2 strip colorama with red and blue channels, i dont remember how exactly i do it but apply the luts you want(in my case asome high constrast luma and colour lut) and then play with mix channels.

    the best way you can get it is learning how the 3 strip technicolor tech work, and then reverse eingeneer that with post vfx.


  8. Hi, im getting ready to get my bmpcc4k ready for the launch, and im decided that usb-c ssd would be my best alternative for record.

    now i got a chance to record with alexa mini, and some red cameras but one of the requeriments is i have is to had 1 ssd at least.

    so i was thinking in get some ssd and buy a case to usb-c 3.1 to have the option to use te same ssd for work with the red and alexa cameras and

    my bmpcc4k.

    so, https://www.amazon.com/Satechi-Aluminum-2-5-inch-Enclosure-Interface/dp/B01FWT2N4E this case can do the work?

    its there any other requeriment on bmpcc4k for use usb-c ssd?

    I got the color shift in 15, but I did NOT get the color shift in 14 (though, as detailed before, this was on two separate computers, etc.)

    Perhaps the color shift only occurs on Windows 10? Can anyone offer any insight?

    damn, i got 14 with color shift, on win10

  10. i practice a lot recording my nephew, he is 4 yr old and he moves like crazy so its a good actor to practice xD.

    i really love to go handleed with manual focus, i think it if you practice a lot handleed you will improve your skills in different skills.

    and handleed let you to play with a freedom and framing without limitations like tripods, steady, 3axis stab etc...

    i also practice a lot recording local shows.


  11. i will explain better know as i could on english:

    i think the best way to get a cinematographic piece is thinking what you want to tell on your video, what you want to narrate, and then think about your resources to achieve that.

    there is where the shutter, exposure, color grading, compositing shot(or framing), the editing, speed, music, sound and use it to create the atmosphere and the narrative you wanna


  12. what i do:

    flat profile, vintage slr lens, low depth of field, composing a cinematography shot(the most important thing for me, how i do that? well for my, a cinematographic shot is when your shot are telling a story or with the composition, looks out of frame, overshoulders on dialogue, camera movements, pan focus, etc, take care of what you want to tell with your video, and translate that to your shots, define what resources help for that, color, camera movements, dop etc..)

    final 24fps, maybe 1/50 or 1/48 shutter speed, but i shoot alot at 1/250 an still look cinematographic.
    for color correction, film stock like Film from redgiant and filmconverter work amazing, specially on the blur that add help to avoid the digital sharpness.
    chose a film curve that you like, and well, thats is i think.

    of course, the editing is important too.
