Dragonfly - video clip made with new 4K crop mode (5DIII)

Hi !

Here's my latest project having fun with the new April crop mode, shooting in 3 different locations in France :
Mayu Puma - Dragonfly (ML RAW 4K - AfterCodecs 8K)

Cheers

Indeed well done even at 12.5 FPS. Perhaps try using Twixtor next time and compare?

Thanks for sharing your work and I love your colors. Care to share your workflow?

Also notice there was heavy aliasing going on in certain areas where there are "lines" and is this due to stretching into 8K from 4K, I'm assuming?

The technical side is pretty much ML RAW new crop Mode 4K ~2.35 12.5FPS MLV 14 bit, image sequence graded with Adobe Camera Raw and converted to  best quality JPG in AE (exporting with Photoshop added a little bit of flickering). I didn't have time to do this to reduce flicker : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IwsUKYdChvs.. But anyway since my camera was not moving the flicker is light and looks a little bit like true Pellicule flickering :D .

The images look fine thanks to Adobe Camera Raw. The dehazing filter is beautiful. I would like to test others RAW software processors, or write my own one day.

And it was encoded out of After Effects thanks to my plugin AfterCodecs, in the next version I'm going to add WebM 8K export.

Indeed well done even at 12.5 FPS. Perhaps try using Twixtor next time and compare?

Tried twixtor, never got good looking results. The aliasing might be either from Youtube downscale filters (I'm going to do tests on theses) or your client downscale filters (generally nearest neighbors :p ) if you're looking at the clip at a higher resolution than your screen. I prefer a little bit of aliasing and sharpness rather than bad video compression ;)

The figures seem to bounce un-naturally, could we slow down the motion to make it more fluid

Yeah it's 12.5 FPS played at 25 :/
I could have recorded in 2K 25FPS but I really wanted to try 4K 2.35 crop mode :)
