Raw Video / Re: 60D RAW video - it's working !!!
« on: September 06, 2013, 09:08:11 AM »
Having issues converting.
When I convert the raw file from the 60D, it's just blue. See attached image.

Any reason why this is happening?

That is a display issue you have to google I forget how to change it but if you have lightroom there are settings you have to change for the preview files to lose the blue tint. If you actually open that file it wont be blue.

So h264 was ungraded right? Just cinestyle profile took out of camera with no CC and no sharpening? Well, seems like a not very fair comparison. But very very nice professional video though, didn't you have problems with ACR flickering? Maybe you could make such a comparison but ACR vs resolve? Still cannot definetely decide which workflow to choose, ACR gives more recovery possibilities while resolve is so much faster. The most of cool looking videos came out from ACR because of those easy recovery value...

Yea I was going to say it was pretty obvious the h.264 was ungraded and the RAW shots were. so from that aspect kind of unfair but I just love how you can pull the highlights back that first scene was probably the best example of that on the balcony.

You've had the best looking 60D footage to me to date. Can I ask you how far right you are exposing? Are you going a little positive  or a little negative. I'm still trying to learn how to read that histogram. I think when the red blue or green circle shows it means that channel is clipped right?

Also can you tell me what build you are shooting with thanks. Love your footage

Raw Video / Re: Best APS-C camera for RAW Video 50D vs T2i vs ??
« on: August 03, 2013, 02:32:17 AM »
I was going to upgrade my 60D to the 5D3 because I do still as well. But the 2.5k BMCC is now $1,995 so I can get two of those for the price of 5D3 kit lense package. Then I can get like 4 hdds and have an A and B cam then I just need to get a yongnuo 565 ettl flash for the 60D. Im perfectly fine with 18mp raw versus 22mp.

If I was the OP that is the route I would go you might have to save a little more to get one 2.5k BMCC compared to a 400 dollar 50D . I dont even think the t2i is for sale brand new anymore what is the used market like for those? It would be worth it in the end to have it as a second cam for your 5D3. If you shoot anamorphic I think you can squeeze 2.5K out of the 5D image but dont qoute me. Or you could just pick up a pocket camera for a 1000. I honestly wouldnt even bother with the 50 or t2i not for raw.

« on: August 02, 2013, 10:23:32 PM »
Really my first attempt at shooting raw but we haven't shot the full video so I figured it would be a good time to shoot a test trailer to get the workflow down. I had some blown highlights in there you can see the guy pants blown out. So I need to slow down and get the exposure right for each shot but its well worth it. Web compression sucks but you can real see the quality of the RAW on the female part. The Raw rgb histogram should it be positive or negative. I heard some say slightly negative and some say slightly positive. The low light scenes were shot with a 35mm f 1.4 rokinon. The rest were with either the Tokina 11-16 or the Sigma 17-55.

Also trying to figure out who compresses more vimeo or youtube.

edit: thanks Yuppa that did it lol

I'm still getting random corrupt/pink frames with update 10. Global Draw OFF, Black Bars, lf_af_raw ON See example:

RAWMagic -> Resolve -> BMD Film only for this clip.

I will try the new update and see how it goes!

I am getting great results otherwise (aside for the moire and aliasing, which I can sometimes control with shallow depth of field.)

These are RAWMagic -> Resolve -> BMD Film -> Hook's LUT -> minor adjustments

I'll also add that the FPS show 23.97 in RAWMagic, as that's what I'm shooting, but every so often there will be a random 29.97 FPS. Not exactly sure why as I never change my FPS in camera.

Question what are you encoding with for youtube and the bit rate stuff like that? I swear youtube compresses the hell out my images. I've tried a bunch of different settings yours looks pretty good though.

Honestly keep up the good work, you'll become pretty popular on youtube with just some time and persistence.

Definitely if you have quality content and something people enjoy you'll blow in no time. And who doesnt love food lol

Wow the Raw Magic looks really saturated compared to the Raw2Dng and Ginger just looks washed out completely compared to the other two apps.

Im curious is update 10 being compiled hourly like update 9? I'm trying to figure out whether to update using the newest hourly of update 9 or keep update 10. I think in update 9 I was getting  960 x 544 where update 10 its 960 x 540 i think. I know the tiniest adjustments in resolution helps with more frames. Just trying to figure out which build is the best to test and run with right now.

Looks good any details on the resolution you shot at and how many frames you capture?

I need a 5D mkiii in my life lol hopefully a few more weeks I'm going to miss my little 60D lol.

edit: Beautiful family by the way!

Here's a short video I've made.
Shot at 1728 x 972 (16:9) @ 25fps, I get 134 frames every time on a Sandisk Extreme 45 mb/s or Sandisk Extreme Pro 95 mb/s.
I used a Minolta MD 50 F1.7 with an adapter.

PS:Any ideas on how to stop the pink frames?

I've been trying to figure that out myself sometimes I get pink frames sometimes I don't. I've turned global draw off and that seems to work, but even then I still get them occasionally and I'm using the 45 mb/s Sandisk as well.

Side question what do you guys feel is the best resolution to shoot at that is practical? I've been using 960x544 continuous and uprezzing to 720. Anybody shooting at a higher resolution of 30 secs or more with success?

I don't even know what you said just then, disassembling memory address raw type? bro  :-\ , but, I'm testing the module now....And it works. Siiiiick. And my 60D is rolling @ 21.3Mb/s. 2948 frames @ 1600 @ 2.35 @ 11.986. That's not bad at all. Awesome. Thank you

What build are you running? I think the last compiled I updated to was July 14th.

Here's the screenshots:

Thank you for all the work you've done here. And A1ex and nanomad and everyone else I have no Idea who you are but thank you, all of you

I was about to say how the hell are you getting 38 mb/s on the 60D then I went back a page and seen you have a Mk ii as well lol

Are you using 24 fps override in camera. I tried these settings over the weekend I was getting random pink frames in the footage. Are you getting this and just cutting it out? And to clarify you are exporting to 1280 x 720 in lightroom for edit in Premiere?

That looks damn good thanks for sharing! Any particular reason you went 17 x 4 were just tryin squeeze more resolution out at the higher iso without the noise? Did you denoise at all in post?

So I have a few issues well one mainly. My 2011 iMac isnt fast enough for Resolve.  Some workflows give me hot pixels others dont so I use the raw converter > ACR > AE pro res 4444 > Edit in PP. This gives me the best image thus far.

I shoot with a san disk 45mb/s extreme. I'm getting these weird pink frames at random regardless of the resolution I shoot. Does this have to do with my exposure being right or wrong or what? My last test I shot at 960 x 544 with I think the jun 20th build. Im not near my camera so I have to check when I get in. Any advice is welcome thanks.

Hey guys here's my first video I shot using the raw format:

It was shot in 960x544 and then I output to 1280x720 (psd) from Lightroom and edit in Premiere Pro.

I have a few questions: Are there any simple solution to reducing/eliminating moire and aliasing? I know there's the VAF-60D, but it's way too expensive for me. Can anyone recommend a good efficient workflow? I don't know if my mind can handle going into 50+ folders in Lightroom, white balancing/tweaking them, and playing the waiting game while exporting each into PSD files again.


I was skeptical about shooting 960x544 but uprezzed to 720 looks better than 1080 h.264 for sure. I'm going to try and shoot something at that resolution during the 4th. How many frames were you getting its probably pretty high.

The single sd slot is a buzzkill as a 60D owner there is no reason to upgrade. My next purchase is a 5D mk iii maybe two, I am curious to see what the 7D mk ii does if they do it brand it that way.

I've been testing Adobe's CinemaDNG Importer for Premier Pro, (Which I explain how to acquire in this post:

Although I go over in detail some of the advantages and disadvantages of the plugin in the post, my personal view is that for projects that are last minute and need to be done at speed it is excellent coupled with RAWMagic, I experienced no pixels and only a few magenta frames using an hourly build from yesterday (unsure of which) and despite being only 8-Bit (see the post for more on this) I was able to get some really nice grades using Neumann Film's Blockbuster Looks package!

Those grades are pretty nice to be presets thanks for sharing I havent followed Neumann Films in so months. They are only a couple bucks to thats not to shabby. I plan to do some test this weekend I'll pick these up.

I also found the Mosaic filter a bit expensive, but it works a treat! It wiped out horrible moiré issues with brick structures I had. Check out the demos they have for fabric issues too. I have it in place full time (I pretty much use my 60D for video only), but it is not too hard to remove it or re-insert it as needed. Given the limited market, and high quality requirements, I don't think they can sell it for a lot less...they also have superb support and are very nice on the phone and in email. I found it well worth the money.

Does it soften up the stills? I got the latest build on my card what is the best resolution to shoot at for around 15 secs of video. I shot some lower Res ones last night were pretty noisy in upscaling. I need to get some day shots later in the week my schedule super hectic.

Sorry if this has been answered I just read this thread front to back. How do these aspect ratios correlate to resolution once rendering to a deliverable extension. Like I know some are 2.35:1, 16:9, but even recording at raw 960x540 (16:9) would seem pointless. Is there a sweet spot that we can get some detail better than h.264 but with record times of 30-40 secs for raw? I know there is limitations with the hardware. I'm new to the film world but a tech guy just trying to get educated thanks. I have the 2.3 build of ML other than training and learning how to shoot raw any real world applications on the 60D outside of testing?
