General Help Q&A / Re: Formatting in ExFAT with Canon 5DM3
« on: June 10, 2014, 10:01:30 PM »
Kbam - If I stick with Fat32 - there's really no difference aside from the split files which the raw converters can piece together right? are there any benefits to exFat?

Also - I don't have everything handy - can 5Dm3 handle 50fps at 1080? or will it bog the card. I'll be using a Lexar 1066x

Danne - exactly what I want.

I'm guessing they recorded in 50fps then forced it to 24fps in post? not sure how to do that but i don't think it's too hard. First time working with slo-mo.

So shutter speed 1/100 with 50fps right?

Thanks for the posts guys. Here's about the speed I'm looking for

from 0:06 to 0:10 and around 1:40... just slightly slower than normal... basically the scene will be a gun to the side of a girl's head... she closes her eyes... a tear rolls down slowly the gun flashes... then she collapses slower than normal speed... not one of those twixtor super slow moves.. just the slightly slower than normal cinematic feel.. damn that's a hard thing to describe lol.

here's the clip

Raw Video / Slow-motion on 5DM3

I'll begin filming my next short in the Spring (2015). There's one shot that I really want at the end where one of the characters dies... I want this to be slo-mo. Not drastic just maybe 75% speed - the cinematic slightly slowed vibe. I know that's not a great description, but I don't know how else to describe what I'm envisioning lol.

Is this doable in RAW on my 5Dm3? I've never tried a slo-mo shot before so this will be a first. I'm wanting to work out all logistics way before I get to the shoot. Will I need to upscale the shot? I've never done this before so when I frame the shot while filming - will I need to allow more headroom to factor in the upscale later?


General Help Q&A / Formatting in ExFAT with Canon 5DM3
« on: June 10, 2014, 11:25:22 AM »
Question - trying to figure this out. I have a few 64Gb CF cards - is it possible to format them into ExFAT in camera so that I get one file - or should I just stick with regular formatting and have the files split at 4Gb? I read somewhere that you can't format to ExFat unless its a 128Gb card or higher?

Sorry if it's a dumb question - it's been a long night and I was confused about it. Thanks!

Raw Video Postprocessing / Re: MLV -> DAVINCI -> AVID help!
« on: June 10, 2014, 09:22:28 AM »
I've seriously been considering sticking with Adobe flow. So It'd be something like:

MLV Mystic - break into DNG with WAV file
Open all DNG files with Adobe Camera Raw - Select all to make the changes universal on each frame of that clip (making sure I understand this correctly).

Not sure how to get from ACR to After Effects for grading...

Once I'm in AE - Drop VisionLOG - Grade (maybe drop a LUT?)

Export to Premiere from AE for cutting?

Is this the right workflow? Again - I apologize. I'm pretty new to RAW/MLV.

Raw Video Postprocessing / MLV -> DAVINCI -> AVID help!
« on: June 10, 2014, 06:06:12 AM »
Hi Everyone...
I'm pretty much a newb to the RAW format. I've been working with the 5DM2 and 3's H.264 files for a few years, but wanted to make the jump to RAW.

Mainly this is a settings question...

I shot a few test files in MLV with audio for reference.

I used MLV Mystic to break it into CineDNG and the WAV file.

I tried brought it into DaVinci Lite 10.1.5 - did grading there, exported the clip to Avid and that's where I ran into issues... it didn't find the file...

My friend said that it's very picky with the settings to be able to go from Davinci to Avid via a DNxHD file then back to DaVinci for final grading and keeping everything on the RAW file.

I've always used Premiere and Speedgrade in the past so Avid and Davinci are fairly overwhelming. Does anyone have a good article that gives  a detailed step-by-step for this workflow or could someone mind breaking it down for me? My main thing is making sure my settings are right and going from there. Any help is greatly appreciated. I plan on shooting my next short in the spring totally through MLV Raw files so need to get all of these bugs knocked out in the meantime.

5DM3 all the way. Wife wont let me play with her 6D lol.

according to the technicians at KB, they tested several readers to see which ones are ok, the Lexar's has issues with compatibility.  They recommend the kingston FCR-HS3.

Glad I caught this. Ordered two 64GB KB 1000x off of amazon this morning with a LEXAR usb 3.0 reader... caught it in time to cancel that reader and order the right one. This is definitely a learning process for raw. Just double checked and the laptop I will be dumping to has USB 3.0.

Ok so pros - with this RAW business - I'll be shooting a short in the Spring - want to shoot it RAW. It will be about 18 minutes (I'll have to knock 3 minutes out for festival restrictions). It'll be a 3 day shoot... any idea how many external hard drives I'll need? I'm figuring two 2TB drives to hold the footage?
Would I be ok with (2) 64G 1000x and (1) 32G 1000X cards or would I need more? I understand it would be a constant dump rotation going.

Hey everyone - I'm new so please bear with me if I sound stupid lol. Just making sure I read this correctly - the 256G card will only hold 128G of footage in the 5D3? However, it will operate fast enough to actually record the raw footage - unlike KB's 128G cards? I've seen nothing but bad reviews on their 128G cards from what reading I've done on here.  I'm considering picking up a couple of their 64G cards simply because the price can't be beat and seems to perform ok?? Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

Did you find yourself having to dump footage constantly running 2x64G cards? Did you have any down time while you waited on them to dump? I honestly cant afford to buy two 128Gb cards, but may be able to pick up a 64gb here and there...
