Raw Video / Re: Uncompressed 14-bit RAW video testing - 5D Mark III
« on: January 13, 2014, 09:23:33 AM »
That's a great start. Here's a few tips for the future:

Focal point -- Consider someone or some object you compose in the shot to draw our attention. Typically something that unusual or unique.

Moving objects -- things don't always have to move all the time. Where there is little or no movement, you can choose to move the camera instead. After all, it is a video.

Use the zoom -- Zoom towards the cell tower, or away from it.  Or consider a tilt, boom up/down, pan, or dolly in/out. The rack focus was a great idea, but try and have someone or some thing specific to rack from and to.

We look forward to your next video!

Thank you very much for the feedback and the time Krane. I get what you're saying about moving objects, someone told me the shots look like still images  :o I really need to practice more on my storytelling/scene blocking etc using the camera it seems.

Thanks again for the advice ;D

Beautiful shots!

I believe I'm using an older build, but I do have the same issue sometimes (having to remove battery).

 ;D Thanks! I'll try the latest build today to see whether that'll remedy the problem

Hey guys. Here is my first attempt at the 5D Mark iii. I'm using the Dec 27th build and sometimes i have to remove and return the battery for the camera to boot (simply switching it on and off doesn't help) does anybody else have this issue?

ML is installed on a Toshiba SD card (30mbps) and footage goes to a Komputerbay 1050x 128GB card.

Thanks for your time guys and do have a Happy 'belated' ;) New Year!

Hey guys.
Have any one of you tried out Hunter's LUT on your 550d DNGs?
Just stumbled upon it & I'm thinking of using it as a"Colourist self improvement" weekend project & post the results here next week. :D Who's in?

Btw folks, I shot a short film yesterday.  Here are the details and the link.


Another example: Using the walimex pro fisheye (8mm)



Epic ML raw goodness! I can clearly see problems if y'all had shot the same via .h264 (Limited dynamic range, overblown sky highlights etc) good stuff.
@Yoda Is scaling up done automagically by setting up the NLE to 1280x720? Thanks!

Is this Prores workflow applicable in Windows too? Sorry for the nOOb question.


*  Export as TIFF files, no compression, best quality, using original dimensions (1280x320)
*  Import image sequence into Quicktime Pro ($30).  Export to .MOLV (Apple ProRes 422 codec), use original source for frame size, frame rate, etc.


Thanks!  :D

Has anyone been successful with Dual ISO on the 550d yet?

Could you please provide more information about your workflow for DPX files?

I only have option to convert RAW to either .DNG or .TIF

Which application would help in conversion of batch files from RAW to DPX?

Also, is that application available for Ubuntu 13.04?


For windows I used Resolve for DNG to DPX exports. I haven't seen DPX workflows for Ubuntu/Linux options yet.
As @coolerinc says, would .TIFF from Blender be a viable alternative for you?


If you have the guts and patience, then using .TIFF is the only way to go.  The image quality is top notch.  Just takes a while to render during the import process (regarding your movie software).

At 0:15 the car is hiccupping ! What's the problem ? It's not my player...

Yes, the source files also seem to be displaying the same!  :o I think this is the effect rewind was talking about  below.

@dafassi, this stroboscopic effect you are talking about is inavoidable in 24fps shooting. It is always there in all the movies. But! You will almost never see the scene like yours in movies. It is always there is an Object in the scene which stays in frame and picks all your attention. All the pans DP doing are done with some purpose. There are no just pans in movies. It's always a following the object in foreground. And the foreground is the place, where the action happens.

Very relaxed sound but the video should be longer.  ;)

Thanks, I know ;D but I thought I'd rough up a short fast test to see how the T2i dng's handle LUTs in Resolve.

Some 18-55mm kit lens action  :) lot's of moirĂ© but that's expected.

Can some one help me.
Why is the video not butter-smooth when panning the camera? And what can i do to make it better (before/after recording)?

Here is the RAW-Shot:


Settings:
1920 mode
1152x490
low iso (200-400)
24 fps overwrite
180 degrees shutter
canon 18-135mm 3,5-5,6

recorded on a 80MB/s Class10 SDHC-CARD

@dafassi Have you tried recording without the fps override?

Great ! What resolution ? Thanks !  :D

Thanks, I shot at 1728 x 648.
Letterbox & upscale to 1920 x 1080 in Resolve (the default project settings). I was averaging approximately 41 frames per shot on a 32gb Sandisk Ultra 30MB/s

A short 'short' with the intent of exploring Magic Lantern's RAW dynamic range on the 550d. ISO at 800.

First off big thanks to all dealing with this tremendous piece of software. Y'all are Godsent.
Now, I've followed all the steps in the Dual IOS pipeline (Convert RAW -> DNG via raw2dng), drag the files to cr2hdr.
The resulting image seems underexposed after importing the sequence into After Effects.

One thing I noted during cr2hdr post process was this error in the console;

"black subtract didn't work"



Below are the settings used. Hope the info is sufficient;

Dual ISO: 100/1600
Dynamic Range Gained: 2.1 EV
Midtone overlapping: 8ev
Alternate frames only: OFF

Any suggestions are highly appreciated!  :)

Y.K
