GH4 4K Green Screen cut with FS700


jcs

Recommended Posts

Our first shoot with the GH4 in 4K, edited and delivered in 4K (everything played in real-time in PPro CC ("Full") during editing; 2010 12-core 24GB MacPro and Quadro 5000). Watch in full screen if using a >HD monitor (1440p and 2160p available):

 

Audio recorded with the FS700 (Audio Technica BP4029 stereo shotgun (Mid+Side)). Close ups with FS700.

Background plate shot with GH4, JPG, full auto.

 

Keyed with Ultra Key. Since many of the items were also green, I had to perform a bit of post work using Track Matte keys to mask off areas from the green screen keyer. A couple areas with motion not masked off and those go transparent (can be fixed by animating a Track Matte key). Could use a bit more color work- ran out of time. Everything done 100% in PPro CC- no round-tripping.

 

File rendered to a custom profile at 3840x2160 32-40Mbit/s 2-pass H.264 MP4.

I feel for you!  In my perfect world, everyone who picks up a camera would be given with 3 assistants :)  I keep shooting video with the GM1 which I want to post.  And then I need to shoot some video on the a7 with the tilt-shift... but by the end of the day I'm wiped!

      I am selling my Sony FS700. The camera has visible signs of use, mostly on the lcd screen, but everything is in fully working order. I bought it used two years ago, and I sent it to the official Sony service in France for update. They cleaned it up and updated camera to the RAW firmware 3.0, and it was as good as new. The first owner was a professional who used it mostly for slow motions, and he took really good care of the little thing. Now it has 610 working hours, half of that is mine. I used it on several commercials and documentaries, mostly with Atomos Shogun, and it was beauty. Here is an example: 
      The reason to sell: I have bought Panasonic Eva-1. Eva is superior camera in many regards, but the difference in picture quality is smaller than I have expected. Also, I miss the speedbooster...
      FS700 comes with original box, original receipt, and all the original accessories - remote, microphone, batteries. Together with camera I sell custom made shoulder rig, and original Metabones Speedbooster with EF mount.
      For all of that I would be happy with 2000 euros... Camera is located in Croatia.

      I was recently a part of making a short movie, and the camera combination used, i thought might interest someone here. Also there might be someone thinking if the FS700 still works today, as i myself did. The film can be seen here (there are no subtitles, but the story is about a woman that gets stopped in the street by the police, because of the hoodie she is wearing. It's at satire on laws currently being implemented i Denmark)

      For the dialogue parts, we were cutting between a Gh5 and a sony FS700. It worked out great I think, all though it was difficult to get the colors to match. We were also filming outside, so that did not help, with the ever changing sun clouds. For lenses, we used a Canon 24-70 2.8 (with focal reducer) on the GH5, and a Tamron 17-50 2.8 on the FS700.
      Can you tell which is which?
       
      camera A

       
      camera B

      I would not use this camera combo for anything that should be matched quickly, but if you have the time, the FS700 files in 10 bit prores slog and the GH5 10 bit vlog files, were super great to work with. The result is not perfect, but we like it. I love both cameras, and I am amazed how great the FS700 and the odyssey 7q are! We were afraid we would have to change batteries all the time, but big NP-F batteries lastede around 2 hours each (1 in the cam that lasted longer and 1 in the odyssey 7q). Mounted on a shoulder rig, the FS700 is also pretty comfortable, in comparison with for instance, an URSA Mini and weighs about the same, with the odyssey. The buttons are a pain to reach though.
      For those interested, the dialogue was recorded with at Røde NTG1 shotgun mic to a Tascam 60d.
      Here are some other shots from the film.
      (if there is banding in the footage where you see it, it is jpeg/web compression, it is not in the final video file.)

      Hey all, I'm looking to shoot a narrative short film with controlled lighting early next year and am thinking about shooting it on my original BMPCC...
      I know, I know. No 4K, terrible low-light, and horrible battery life. But if 1080p was fine, controlled lighting throughout, and an external battery solution, is it better for me to use the original and cancel my 4K pre-order? I could use the money saved to pay for an additional cine prime/actually pay actors a decent wage...
      What would be the advantages in this case of using the 4K over the original?
