General Chat / Re: Anybody still sticking to H.264 after testing RAW?
« on: July 24, 2013, 04:17:09 AM »
If it's a project I'm motivated to get the possible work out of, RAW. If it's a time constraint issue like client work, h264.

Just do the math.
So it's 20.08%.

Yes, KomputerBay certainly will stand by their products.  They have a lifetime guarantee on their cards.   :D
True, but if you are doing any relevant work, losing your footage is fatal. And the time between exchanging cards is a waste. I wish these cards were more reliable. It's much better to buy two 32GB Lexar 1000x and when one is full dump it off and then rinse and repeat.

Given all the reports here and in other forums of hit and miss, the ratio is at 50-50 chance of working and non-working.
I do not not think it is prudent for me and others to recommend this brand to a friend or a stranger.

I have tried the 1000x 64 gig version of komputerbay for a few minutes only since it was my friend's card, mine is a lexar, and it was working. I could not say it would stay that way longer than a lexar or more proven brands.

the 1000x 64 gigs seem to have a higher percentage of "good feedback" but this thread is about the 1050X so my report for that version is a big thumbs down.
That was my general perception for all cards. I am unable to speak for Komputerbay though.

The lower the size, the better chance it will perform at higher resolutions.

You're better off with a USB 3.0 netbook and 2TB USB 3.0 hard drive.

Theres a bunch of methods to post-process, and I have a project coming up that will involve me taking many scenes with 5-20 seconds of footage each, which means I will have to look at lots of scenes individually for color grading/fixing.

What's the optimal workflow to approach this?

Have the same question as well. I live in Canada and returning the card would cost nearly half the card.

There's a problem with your plugin.

I am trying to do 60FPS to 24FPS slow motion so I import my 60FPS footage into AE into a 24FPS composition then when I right click the raw to interpret footage it gets an error that crashes After Effects. I have to kill it with Task Manager. No menu shows up.

This works fine in Premiere Pro.

Is there any fix for this? I really prefer AE. :(

Post-processing Workflow / Windows machine, alternative to ProRes?
« on: July 20, 2013, 08:15:48 PM »
What's the best alternative? I don't think you can use the ProRes codec on Windows machines.

Have you told AE to use multiple threads to render more than one frame at once?  It's still slow, but that will help, at least.

This actually helped ALOT. Thank you! I was only using 1 CPU, and was about to quit RAW overall.

I do the usual, RAW2DNG, Camera Raw, move to AE as image sequence, and export.

AE seems to do it frame by frame, and since I am recording at 1280x720 at 60FPS, it takes hella long for only a 30 second clip... I'm pretty sure its not my computer (i7 2600k, 560TI GPU). Anyone have advice for optimizing/minimizing time for the post-processing process to getting the videos ready for timeline?

I plan to have many "clips" and moving them to AE individually to render would take quite a while.

ISO100 looks the best there. What's the difference between external and internal?

I'm sick and tired of these "wish it was on XYZ model" posts.

Raw Video / Re: How much footage can I record on RAW video?
« on: July 08, 2013, 03:11:31 PM »
About 7-8 min of 1920x1080 24fps footage. 64GB card takes about 15min. I don't know about 720p 60fps but probably quite similar.

Thank you!

Raw Video / How much footage can I record on RAW video?
« on: July 08, 2013, 09:04:42 AM »
Tried looking everywhere for these answers:

Suppose I had a 32GB 1000x card. How much footage am I able to record via:
1) 1280x720 P Raw 60 FPS
2) 1920x1080 P Raw 24 FPS (Does bit matter? 14 bit?)

I'm very new to the video world so please excuse my lack of knowledge.

Hey guys, I own a 5D3 and a 70-200mm IS II lens. Since a steadicam merlin won't handle the weight of this and that I don't really want to wear a vest, do you guys have any suggestions for handheld techniques using such equipment? I'm not doing any professional work, it's more of a casual thing but I want to get the best picture possible. I want to be able to:

1) Horizontal pan - Should be easy...
2) Vertical pan - Should be easy...
3) Spiral movement around a person - Tried this with an object and kept losing position and trouble with focus...
4) Follow someone - Trouble with focus... is the key here to stay at the same distance to the person constantly?

I know focus problems can be fixed with high aperture (f/11+), is that okay to do so if I record RAW so that I can increase the exposure in post?
