  1. Hi all, Hoping someone can help with this edit workflow question: I currently shoot video on Canon DSLRs (in H264 MOV format), and edit on a late 2009 iMac (2.8ghz i7 processor, 16gb memory). The films I make are mainly for web rather than TV broadcast, and beyond basic colour grade / tidying up, have minimal effects added (no CGI). Until recently, I used Final Cut Pro 7, using FCP's Log & Transfer function to import and edit footage in Pro Res 422 format. Having just moved to Premiere Pro CC 2017, I'm trying to figure out the most efficient workflow with the best resulting image. Should I import and edit in native H264 MOV? Or ingest and edit as either Pro Res or DNxHD? If Pro Res or DNxHD, what's the best way to ingest (or import / transcode)? I've been reading mixed things via Google; mainly Adobe-related articles explaining a native workflow, vs various articles sponsored by transcoding software companies, saying that transcoding will have a better result. Any thoughts would be much appreciated. Thanks! Elliot
  2. I recently shot a music video with the GH4(in 4k) and GH2(1080) all the footage looks really good in preview playback but I notice a Gamma change with the .mov GH4 files if I open in FCP or VLC? I've had this problem with RED files and I just continued editing with the darkened gamma change because the files seem to correct themselves upon export. With that said I have a couple questions with how I should continue with this project or if there is a better way. My workflow plan right now is to Transcode first all of AVCHD GH2 files with 5dToRGB to PRORES 422HQ After that I'll import the PRORES files into FCP and drag a clip to the timeline and match the sequence settings to the clip because the final deliverable will be in 1080. My question is with the 4k footage and if this workflow makes sense? Should I import the .mov files directly into the 1080 sequence? or should I transcode the .mov files to 4K PRORES? I know importing the .mov files will slow me down because I'll have to constantly render but I don't want to lose image quality in conversion. My concern is the gamma will change and I wont know the true image quality until after I export. I just want to keep the images looking like they are. What would be some of your workflows when working with the same type media?
  3. Hey Guys, I am about to shoot some footage on my T3 with my Singer 16d. What do you use to unsqueeze the footage? Premiere Pro? I don't have Final Cut... Also, what's this about using Magic Lantern? What's the advantage?
  4. The 1080p image quality gains from a 4K GH4 file are well documented, but I've got a basic workflow question to extract the maximum IQ from my 4K files destined for FullHD output: I've got a basic two cam interview I shot with the GH4. I'm wondering how to maximize the extra information when outputting to 1080p. Will I have equal sharpness and color information gains if I edit on a 1080p timeline and output to 1080p as if I edit on a 4K timeline and output to 1080p? Is it the same effect in the end?
  5. THere must be a way to do this! I just want to get slow mo. I'm on a 25p timeline and I've been given 60p footage to incorporate. Its all silent. I've dropped the 60p (59.94) into premiere and slowed it down 41.71%. Seems a bit of a bodgy way to do it. Is there a better way? (like in virtualdub? Ideally you could just hack the header info to change the time signature.
  6. Hi Everyone, I'm looking into buying a new Mac for my video editing and would really appreciate any advice. Being budget minded, if I was just starting out I'd be seriously considering a PC, but I've never owned anything other than a Mac (G4 in 2001 was my first) - and I'm actually very keen on FCPX. So I'm definitely looking at Macs only. I've been editing on a MacBook Pro for the last several years, but it's now way too slow for my recently increased workload. Having done a bit of research, I'm pretty sure I'm going for a desktop setup this time - more bang-for-buck, and tbh my Macbook was plugged in 95% of the time anyway. So my choice is between: iMac 21.5"( customized: 3.1GHz i7 / 16GB RAM / GeForce GT 750M 1GB) iMac 27" ( customized: 3.5GHz i7 / 16GB RAM / GeForce GTX 780M 4GB) MacPro (the new one - lowest spec) I currently only edit AVCHD and H264 (G6 and D5300) - no RAW - and it will probably be that way for the foreseeable future. I would like the option of using Resolve in the future but it's not essential, particularly right now. The obvious answer is probably to buy the most powerful setup I can afford, but I think a Mac Pro is probably overkill, and with all the necesarry add-ons it's a bit out of my budget. So I'm primarily looking at the iMacs. In terms of screen size I'm easy - I'd lean slightly toward the 21" plus a 2nd monitor, but 27" alone would be fine too. I think it all comes down to processing power really ... As I say I'll be mainly running FCPX (and one thing I'd really love is for my new mac to rip through Neat Video rendering). Can anyone help with my decision? Will the extra processing 'oomph' (i7 and graphics card) of the 27" described above be of very great benefit? Ability to run Resolve smoothly would be a bonus but not an essential. One final note - all 4TB of my external drives are Firewire. Will performance suffer a lot from not having Thunderbolt drives, or is it feasible to get by with my old FW's until I can afford a few new HDs? Any advice or experience greatly appreciated - thank you!
  7. Hello folks, here is my latest slide-show work, showing dancers of 13th PLESOKAZ - international dance festival, annually maintained in Pozega / Croatia. I used aprox. 900 pictures (post production killed me ) in order to show power of Canon 1Dx. Thank you all for watching

  9. Hello, Everyone.   I am debating whether to jump into the Canon 5D Mark III Raw video capture world, but as I have been researching the topic and equipment further I am now considering using Cineform as an editing codec in Final Cut 7.   Up until now I have only work with ProRes, but I have read excellent things about Cineform, so I wanted to ask others what they feel about it as an editing codec.   Does cineform work well in Final Cut 7?   Does cineform require more computer performance in order to edit with?  More RAM?  RAID?  Or would a RAID setup be overkill?   Is there a version of cineform you really prefer to edit in?  Raw?  4444?  422?   Is there much visible difference between the various quality levels?   Does cineform grading integrate well from cineform studio into Final Cut?     These are some basic questions I have after having read about cineform a bit, so I would love to get some real world feedback on it from others.   Please don't hesitate to add any additional observations you might have from your experience.  Every bit of information is useful to me.   Thanks so much.  I look forward to your responses.  
  10. This is mine and my teammate's Extreme Martial Arts Demo Reel that I recently shot and edited together, featuring various styles of martial arts, weaponry work, tricking and fight choreography. It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I thought I'd still go ahead and share it on the forum :)   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MXDsV0YAO08   (Shot on a Canon 600D with 18-55mm Kit Lens and 50mm f/1.8, and edited using Adobe Premiere Pro & After Effects).
  11. Hi!   I am an amateur (but passionate!) filmmaker and would like to buy a display/monitor for video editing. Colour accuracy is of course important. I don't earn my money with video editing, so I don't want a high-end professional, x000 € expensive monitor, but something in the range of 600-900€ would be possible.   Which 27" display would you recommend? Or are two 24" displays better (ergonomically)? Thanks!  
  12. Slow Motion - Which option is better for making slow motions with the Pana GH3?     1. - Choose the highest fps so 50fps instead of 24fps in the Menu and then apply the slow motion in post?   2. - or Choose the slower/faster option in the Menu therefore slower down in-camera?       What is this function actual doing - what does actual happen in terms of shutter speed or ... ?     Can you combine 50fps and 24 fps footage on the edit table without any problem?     Interlaced versus Progressive? Progressive gives a smoother look but I just saw a video of somebody explaining you should opt for interlaced when slowing down to have a smoother look. What are your thoughts?     One other question? - AVCHD is just an compression mode but to be on the safe side. Can 2 cameramen combine AVCHD and Move footages on the edit table? What things should we be aware of? Choosing both interlaced or bot progressive and....?       Thanxs you for helping out! T The Panasonic manual isn't really helpful for newbies like me.
  13. Andrew's post about the Hackintosh for editing RAW files got me thinking about how to approach an editing system for the GH3 I'll be using (once it finally ships to the US).     I'm curious how much power and storage I would when shooting with a GH3. (Keep in mind I'm not thinking of a PC system, but open to the idea if someone feels they have great results).   Would a Mac Mini with quad core and 8gb RAM suffice? And has anyone done any DIY upgrades to a Mac Mini that works well?   I've been leaning towards a new Imac but can't stand the lack of adaptability and higher cost, which is why I was wondering if I could get away with a Mac Mini and getting my own monitor at a cheaper price. Tweeking a Mac Mini may be an exercise in stupidity I realize, but you can at least get into the guts and people seem to do various unauthorized upgrades, like putitng in an extra hard drive and such. But will this be worth it considering the cost?   I assume a laptop would not be enough power but maybe not?   Curious what others thought based on what you know about the GH3 and the file sizes and demands that will be required...     Cheers,   Dr. John    
  14. Hey guys, So I'm running into a problem when trying to conform my 60p, 50Mbps footage, to 24p in Cinema Tools 4.5.1. Might be because of my version of the software, but has anyone else run into this issue? I have a shoot coming up and I really don't want to use AVCHD. Thanks. Any help is appreciated.     Also, Cinema Tools keeps saying that my files have temporal compression. Not sure what that is. I ran the .mov files through 5DtoRGB first before importing into Cinema Tools. 
  15. Ok, Question #1: So I really wanna get out and shoot. Are there any editing tips for Final Cut Pro that can give a nice anamorphic look to a 16:9 frame? Im shooting with 30mm f/1.4 Sigma on 600D Canon. Question #2: I will eventally buy somthing. And I'm a broke student. The Helios 44m 2/58 lens and a cheap anamorphic lens sounds perfect. Any suggestions on the cheapest Anamorphic lens that can fit the Helios? THANK YOU FOR YOUR INPUT !   Peace

  17. As of tonight, the new iMacs are finally officially available for ordering from the Apple store. The maximum configuration looks something like this: [list] [*]3.4GHz Quad-core Intel Core i7, Turbo Boost up to 3.9GHz [*]32GB 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 4X8GB [*]768GB Flash Storage [*]NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX 2GB GDDR5 [/list]All for about $4,500.   Opting for 8GB of RAM (to upgrade later) and a 3TB Fusion Drive instead bring the cost down to about $3000.    Also, the Cubix Xpander is an external peripheral that allows for the use of second GPU, and the 10GB/s Thunderbolt connection allows for additional drives to be hooked up externally -- including the 12TB Thunderbolt RAID.   This all sounds impressive, but how future-proof (i.e. ready for the next five years) is this setup? I suspect that it can handle 4K ProRes, but what about 4K RAW (and Davinci Resolve)?   I have also been communicating with a custom PC builder on eBay who is going to spec out a workstation specifically designed to work optimally with Adobe CS6 and Davinci Resolve 9. I'll post the results of that when I get them.
  18. Hi, I m about to purchase new Mac Book Pro with Retina Display i7 Quad Core 2.6 with 16GB RAM, but only with 256 SSD. This computer is already way above my budget, but as I m planning to buy BMC camera, I need something fast to edit RAW footage. My question is would this computer with Thunderbolt External HD (my internal SSD would be to small) be enough for editing RAW dng footage (if not completely smooth, than at least bearable editing)? Thank you very much. P.S. I have been editing mostly on FCP 7, and I know that I need to make transition to Premiere C6 in order to edit RAW footage.
