Raw Video / Best way to keep youtube compression low? 5d M2 raw
« on: August 21, 2014, 06:03:27 AM »
Hi guys,

What formats do you all recommend to keep the raw quality once uploading to Youtube? I always export in avid DNXHD 8bit for youtube. When I playback in my comp, quality is of course the raw quality. But as we all know, youtube compresses. Any codec they will maybe not compress so tightly? I feel like it's half the quality once I upload.

Thanks,
mr D

Share Your Videos / Fantasy / Action Drama web series (5Dmk2)
« on: August 21, 2014, 06:00:59 AM »
Hi all,

First off. THANK YOU ALL! ML has been so great. Love the support and the product. This web series would not be nearly as good without you. If I went back to compressed video, I would literally DIE.

So here it is:

Thank you,

Hi guys,

Is it possible to go from MLV to Cdng in one conversion?

Thank you,

Hi everyone,

I have the 5d MK2 and have CinemaDNG in post with the raw recording. In Resolve, I export in 10 bit and it looks washed out. If I export in 8 bit, it looks fine.

Any idea what I should do? Sorry if this is a beginner question.

Thanks,
Mr D

Hi Guys,

I notice raw recording ML gives 14 bit, but Resolve only has 10 bit exporting options. Is this because in a final render, a monitor can not display all 14 bits of info?
Or, is there a way to export all bits and save all the quality?

Thank you,
Mr D

Hi guys,

I am tying to figure out how to export best quality. I can use Adobe Camera Raw in after effects and then export 10 bit .MOV files with Avid DNxHD, but I'm not sure if that's the right way to do it, seeing that the raw is supposedly 14 bit.

Also, Davinci Resolve can playback the raw CinemaDNG in real time and export WAAAAY faster than After Effects, but the export options are the same as AE, of course.  (for this reason alone, I would go with Resolve over AE)

Lastly, it seems logical to me that I should color correct and grade the raw files before exporting to .MOV, since there is some compression happening afterwards. Is this the right approach?

Please correct me if I've made some errors in what I said.

Thanks for helping me learn!
Mr D

PS. Does anyone know if Resolve is even necessary for coloring? Can AE or Premiere do the same things by different route? I have not seen a difference(aside from camera tracked coloring)

Post-processing Workflow / Tone mapping RAW DNGs?
« on: February 11, 2014, 12:20:52 AM »
Hey Guys,

I saw someone have a video and I think someone mentioned that they did HDR video. From my research, the ML HDR hack is only good for slow movements. So filming a movie, for example, with the HDR probably wont work. Correct me if I'm wrong, of course.

That leads me to ask, what about tone mapping. From my understanding, this is when you fake HDR by exporting multiple exposures from one raw image.

My point is, I'm trying to see if I can get an even better dynamic range after I record raw.  Exploring my options, seeing what you all have to say about it.

Thank you,
Mr D

General Chat / RAW 5d Mark 2 Dynamic range vs Mark 3
« on: February 11, 2014, 12:15:52 AM »
Hi guys,

I am considering an upgrade to Mark 3 depending on the dynamic range difference. When shooting Raw, between these two cameras, are there differences in the dynamic range, and if so, is there enough to justify an upgrade? Although the mk3 can get some more resolution, I'm mainly concerned with the DR, since that is one of the bigger factors in quality.
Has any one done a comparison?

Thank you!
Mr D

General Help Q&A / 5d Mark 2 "Press set to start"
« on: February 10, 2014, 05:46:44 AM »
Before throwing a brick at me, I'd like to say that YES I have looked for a long time and can't find the answer.

On my Mark 2, it says to press set to start RAW. When I click set, it turns it to "on" However, when I go to record, I have to press set again and it doesn't work. It disables it.

Is it possible the nightly build I downloaded is flawed in this?

Thank you,
Mr D

Hi guys,

I'm reading from a lot of posts that the Lexar 1000 is the best choice for raw. However, based on the speed specs needed for a memory card doing raw video, I was wondering if my current cards can handle raw video.

Thank you,
Mr D

Raw Video / Are people still bricking Mark 2s when trying raw?
« on: February 05, 2014, 06:06:21 AM »
Hi guys,

Couple months back I was on the forums and got a bit scared to try Raw on my 5d mk2 because I was seeing posts about people bricking their cameras. Has anything changed? I can't find those posts anymore. maybe I'm looking in the wrong section?

Also, I'm wondering if my memory card can handle raw? It's a Sandisk  Extreme Pro CF 90mb/sec

Thanks!
Mr D
