So moire is a HUGE problem in video because it distracts the viewer from the general image.

I saw this movie on a 5 meter screen and it had quite visible moire on some shots, but the juries of several film festivals didn't care

We get really obsessed in the technical part, because the rule of trendy cinema is Hollywood, but even there they don't care that much. Wasn't one season of 'House' shot with muddy 5d h264?

The good thing on (mkiii) raw is that you can scale it up, the warp stabilizer is crap in my eyes, try to use the scaling- only method, with that you avoid wobbeling

Thanks, i'll check it out.
Some of the shots were so shaky (5x crop mode) that i tried to correct them with the stabilization tool in AE cs5. Totally useless
This was only to show the result of the VisionLog
I had some shots that i didn't plan to use, because they were just tests, and seeing this LOG profile I thought it was a good chance to recycle them. For me, it was a very good help to use the profile. Right now, working raw video is another dimension. The shot that amazed me the most is this one:

When I shot it, the highlights on the lcd screen were totally blown out, and thought that it was going to be useless. When I opened it, the highlight detail was there.

This is the shot with the VisionLOG applied

Color corrected

The test

Canon 50d, Helios 44, Son of a batch; edited proxies in Premiere, sequence imported in AE for color correction

Thanks Simulacro, great catch! Good thing this was a fun side vid and not a paid thing, lol

Nice comic too! I'm curious do you ever incorporate any comic stuff into your filming?

Thanks too :) comic is an influence, but i haven't used it for an specific work. It helps when storyboarding or simply putting everything in order in my mind

Nice images, the name of the author is Edgar ALLAN Poe, you wrote on the video ALLEN (by the way i made a comic based on The Fall of The House of Usher) ;D

the ML info is the useful one

People complain about the cons of the raw file sizes as if they had before something nearly as good as 14bit depth raw video. But before, you only had two choices: videotape and celuloid (later h.264, mpeg, dvcpro, etc). The one used in cinema production was of course more difficult to manage than videotapes, but that's the price you had to pay to get the best IQ.

Now, you have an option: work with the equipment you have, learn how to use it, and in my opinion, with ML raw 14bit, you really have to be more accurate every time you press the record button. That's efficiency, and that's what people did before, not wasting meters of celluloid and being precise in your work. The same applies with raw.

Here's a video I shot entierely on 50D, with a samyang 14t3.1 and a 50mmf1.7
The first timelapse was shotwith fps override at 4fps and sped up 10000% in post

I corrected wb, added saturation and applied a LUT (vision X) all in premiere.

Very cool video! also, it's good to see that if you know how to pan the camera correctly, there are very few rolling shutter issues

New 50D user here, iv used ML on my mkii many of times and i spotted a difference instantly and that is the mkii has movie viewer for live view, when using the 50D for RAW video time lapses using fps override, if i use 1fps is what being shown one the display how it will look? i have a ND filter if so as it looks very over exposed. Im wanting to do day time time lapses btw.

Cheers in advance.

isn't turning intervalometer and silent pics on at the same time a good idea?
I only have a 16gb card, shooting the standard size (1584x592 aprox) I have like 4 1/2 minutes of footage when the card is full... So you'll have like 18 mins of footage in your 64 gb card (aprox)

on the 50d: powersave in liveview

sorry for the crappy pic
Raw Video / Re: Turn your RAW footage into LOG

You should rename this thread to 'Turn your RAW footage into LOG with aaphotog's LUT', until then, thanks to everyone for sharing their LUTs too!

I found out something right now:

You have to double click the .raw file once you find it in the app's browser. Then the file appears on the output queue, now you have to choose an output folder, click OK and...

it's working!

The interface gives me only the chance of looking trough the icon folder structure on the left side to find the .raw files. If I go to: menu/open... the app says this:

An exception of class NilObjectException was not handled.  The application must shut down

...and it shuts down

Sorry about the ugly error, it only works on 64 bit systems, what version of MacOsX are you on?


I have to say it's a 2008 white macbook 3gb RAM

I'm working without battery (it swollen so i had to take it off) I heard that the efficiency of the computer reduces drastically but i don't know if that is related to the app's error, because other person has the same issue.
It doesn't let me do anything, this message appears:

funny t-shirts! they made me crack ;D

gonna try the app, thank you!

I'd be interested in this too, I guess it's because ACR is designed for stills? Only thing I can think of is to import individual tiff's and remember the settings. Bit of a pain though.

You don't have to remember the settings: there is an options panel where you find the option to give the picture the settings applied to the last picture you worked with. (i suppose in english "former conversion")

Nice video simulacro.  I like your still composition for quite a few of the shots.  Your exposure and dynamic range look pretty good.  Watch a few videos for Resolve tutorials to really pull some colours.  The waveform scope has become my new best friend.  Hitting ⌘D to show before and after, even just after expanding my colour range in Resolve, shows a world of difference.

Good video & Good luck

Thanks dsManning. Unfortunately i can´t work with Resolve, I have an old 2008 macbook. Working with AE and premiere. Gonna check some Resolve tutorial to see if i can use some tips with camera raw and premiere

Another test with the 50D. Still learning how to handle the exposure, some shots overexposed, maybe i'm still shooting as if it was h.264 ;D

There are some shots where one can see the exposure changes produced by ACR.

Last sunday i was trying to catch the full moon with no luck, too much wind for my tripod. I was with my 135mm lens instead my vivitar 28-90 and only could take long focal distance shots. It was "La noche de San Juan" and people was dancing, jumping in fire, so i made a video.

There are some 5x shots, with my slow card only 1600x900. One of them was magenta magenta so I did what I could in ACR

The very last clip of the card had 13 bad frames. The rest of them, only one bad frame.

Thanks again for this development guys!!!

I used the Canon L-series 28-70 f2.8 and a Samyang 14mm f2.8 for the wides...

I saw i very nice use of the zoom in - out movement. I tried once with a 24-105 and it wasn't soft at all

5x video. with my sandisk extreme 60MB/s i only could record 13 second clips aprox, still, very impressive
