Hardware and Accessories / Re: Hard Drives for transferring in the field...
« on: November 04, 2013, 09:56:05 PM »
I haven't shot much raw footage, and when I do it's for relatively small projects and since I plan out my shots I don't overshoot. I carry a Lacie 256gb SSD connected to my rMBP through thunderbolt to transfer footage from a Kingston USB3 card reader. I also carry a 1Tb USB3 drive either for further storage or for backup purposes.

In what way isn't it working? Most cameras have the set button do nothing by default, so if this is the case you'll need to go through your menu and assign a specific function to the set button.

PS: Try including a more descriptive title next time round ;)

Great work! The portraits are spot on.

Both the Canon 10-22 and the Tokina 11-16 should be fine for your needs, and both are excellent lenses

i actually prefer this workflow too, but when i import footage into resolve, i get hot/dead pixels.
but when i import that same footage into After effects/ACR. those hot/dead pixels are gone.
how are you handling dead pixels in that workflow?

Never encountered any hot/dead pixels so far. I guess that's one benefit of using ACR since it automatically removes them for photos (so that would also apply for image sequences).

Regarding noise reduction, I use Neat Video in Premiere (before exporting the master), and then add a bit of grain through FilmConvert to add some texture.

I'm round-tripping between Resolve and Premiere (create proxies through Resolve, create rough cut in Premiere, re-link and colour in Resolve, do final corrections, sound mixing etc. in Premiere) as in the following tutorial:

Did you try recording on another card? Could help determine whether problem is coming from camera or not

Colours look lovely, especially skin tones! Are you colouring in Resolve with any particular LUTs?

Youtube have recently released a free music library containing around 150 tracks:

I'm seriously considering getting the body and EF to M adapter. One seller on ebay is selling body only for around 240eur inc. shipping within Europe, so you can get both for around 330eur. Makes for a good backup camera considering you can mount all EF / EF-S lenses, and might even be great for timelapses.

Small bug I'm experiencing with Oct12 build:
After pressing the AF-ON button to focus, the raw video crop (white rectangle and black bars) disappear and the full image appears. Going into ML menu and back out seems to redraw them. Also applies for cropmarks. Still need to check latest build.

Great work! Image looks lovely and really flowing shots.

Actually I really like the feel of the handheld shots as I think it really fits the style you're portraying. Doing it totally by steadicam would change the style I guess.

What Francis said.

Get a stabilized lens and/or a monopod (especially if working with prime lenses). Also, watch out for exposure - some shots are a little blown out. Remember that DSLR footage is heavily compressed so you won't be able to make exposure changes in post. Always meter for your subject. ML has plenty of features to help you out with these  ;)

Great work!

So it will only be aviable to the cloud members??
How can i get it if i am not in the cloud? thought like a normal update... Looks like it would only be aviable for cc, i am using cs6, any ideas?

It's a (major) upgrade to Premiere CC, so you need to be subscribed to get the update. It's not compatible with CS6.

it looks like a hot pixel problem,

Might be focus peaking turned on

Is there any way to get the white rectangle to remain on screen during raw recording like in previous builds? Would be quite useful to get accurate framing (although at the moment I'm using the cinescope cropmark since I'm recording in 2.35:1 aspect ratio).

This topic has been moved to General Chat since it's not directly related to ML and doesn't fall under any of the other subforums.

Cool shots! Bit overprocessed for my liking but it's nice knowing how much details can be retained in highlights & shadows.

As beauchampy said, the 5D2 does indeed suffer from nasty aliasing (which seems worse than in h264). Looking forward to trying it out more in the coming weeks in preparation for a project I'm working on.

Have heard of the brand Nexto Di quite a number of times, and they have just the device you're after, although it's quite expensive.

Really cool feature to have for those one-off shots, and surprisingly it works very well (live view is quite responsive)!

I wonder what else can be done through the 6D's WIFI. Would be cool for example if there could be a way to upload directly to different image services (flickr, facebook, etc.).

Just converted your link into an embed (done by highlighting the vimeo link and clicking on the vimeo button in the editor (first button from 2nd row). Make sure to remove the 's' from 'https' so that it becomes 'http' only.

Videos in the ML Cinema are hand picked and added by admins, which explains why you couldn't do it :)
