This should cover most of his work flow, I don't know about the HDR processing

Thank you, this is exactly what i needed.

Yes, I follow that technique but with some changes, that one from the link is for the ramp time lapse with traditional single exposure, so:

1  The first difference is that I did that process for all the 3 different exposure(-2, 0, +2) instead of one, at this stage I just leveled them, I didn't apply any retouch. Step 1 of the tutorial.

2  Then I batch process all the exposure in photomatix to produce the hdr in tiff 16 bit format which is the only way to export 16 bit from it.

3  I converted the tiff 16 bit to dng in lightroom, It's boring but lrtimelapse doesn't read tiff... well, actually he does but only for rendering the final video not to follow the work-flow. That's the why of this extra step.

4  I imported the dng in lrtimelapse to create the key-frame and from there I follow step by step what it's show in the tutorial. Step 2 of the tutorial.

This is a short overview, If you have any particular question feel free to ask me.

Thank you so much sir, I am going to give one a try...can not wait to see more of your contributions sir.

Amazing,thanks for sharing...would you mind expanding on your workflow?

Once all footage is in the media pool then in the edit tab just simply press the + in the top left hand corner to create a new timeline, i usually uncheck empty timeline and then all relative media in media pool automatically goes on my new timeline..hope this helps!

to tell you the truth, all the recording I did was completely off the cuff, I took a quick one hour break from the surf to just grab some clips,everything I captured was very hurried cause waves were fun..I am still learning about putting together a real complete composition, I am a complete amateur and for us that live on the Gulf of Mexico fun waves do not come around as often as we want...I work for a shop and I just think filming in RAW with the help of ML will separate us from all the other vids shops are putting out there..thank you for the suggestion, I appreciate the critique very much.Believe me I just want to get better at making little vids like this.

Looks good! Raw handles the sun well!

Thanks, I did use a Hoya variable nd filter..shot with Canon 35mm L with 3x zoom.I love how I can go in any direction with RAW...any grade wii work well.

so I put together this little project to test the new Cinelog Log Lut for Davinci and see if created a easier workflow for my system.I am very happy with the results, and the proxies where rendered very quickly and worked great in Premiere.

here is a quick run down of what I did just in case any one was interested, I am still new at using this workflow so I am sure I could have done tons of things the surf was super fun so I did not film to much.

Filmed with 60D with the help of Magic Lantern MLV_REC...converted to LOG with Cinelog newest Davinci LUT and color corrected also in Davinci...then to Premiere..color graded Osiris M31 Lut....

Thank you Andy, I received the email and can not wait to test...thank you for all your hard work sir.

Thanks bennyray1!

Could you upload an image with noise?

In x3 zoom mode, the image become more sensitive - for better or worse: if the "regular" image is noisy, the zoomed image will be have even more noise. if the regular is clean, the zoomed one will be even clearer.

Now, what cam make noise an image? Barring technical problem (Bad sensor or lens) noise almost always, comes for either poor lighting and/or high iso - and usually a combination of both. The 60D does not have a great low light performance to begin with, in regular h264 video: iso 1600 is acceptable, 3200 is borderline. In RAW, this is even more so.
So, how do you lower you noise?
1. use better lighting;
2. use a wider aperture;
3. lower you ISO;
4. Use some noise canceling in post, such as neat video.
5. Hide the noise with some filter - A film grain filter like Film Convert (which I almost always use) is a great option.
6. A combination of the above;

Also, use the ETTR function in ML: if, after you start ETTR (by pressing SET button usually) you get ISO higher than 1600, you better step backward and change something.

The above clip was shot in broad daylight, at iso 100, with an aperture of about f/8 (and using a fader ND to keep the aperture at 8, which is the optimum for my lens). so, no problem of noise here. I did use film convert - but only for the look, not for the noise.

Thank you so much for your more than generous advice sir.In my haste to film my subject matter many of your tips were completely overlooked sir. I will consider your advice as a check off list from now on.That was very kind of you sir to give me and others this detailed advice.Please keep sharing your video creations to help encourage and inspire us 60d users to utilize RAW capture to its finest.Thank you again sir.I was filming with my Canon 35mm L at 1.4 and I should have stepped it up to optimal 8 to help with the sharpness which also came across as a noisy capture.

Looks amazing OObner,unfortunately I do not have as much success using the crop feature on my 60d. When I record with the crop it is very noisy. How do you get your images so clear?Looks great sir. Any advise would be much appreciated.

Looks good bennyray1! What was your workflow and what aspect ratio did you shoot it in crop?
Thank you very much. I filmed in 1280 x 720 aspect ratio based on the fact all we ever do is put our videos on Vimeo, so I have no need for larger resolutions.So I recorded everything in the .mlv format, and converted to dng's with the mlv dump through terminal( I am on a mac).My first idea was to use Resolve to convert them to Pro Ress and then go into Premiere and roundtrip back to Resolve. Well Resolve just processed all the clips with hot pixels, so I had like 80 unusable clips.So I started over, this time I used the Resolve Pro Ress clips inside VLC to view them all and see what at least was keepable. So on to the real workflow, I imported into the dng sequences into After Effects, did some slight modifications to exposure and detail in ACR and applied VisionLog from VisionColor.I only used Neat Video in After Effects when needed, mostly the cropped shots were very noisy, but I exported all the clips using the CineForm codec from Go-Pro.After I completed that lengthy process I was ready to bring in all my clips into Premiere. In Premiere I added M31 Lut from VisionColor via LutBuddy, applied small tweaks with the fast color corrector and then topped the entire sequence off with a Adjusted Layer with FilmConvert Pro applied to it. Export as .h264 and then let Vimeo ruin all the work I put in..hahaah

Nice video, what you use for color? Osiris Lut's ?

Thanks sir,I actually used VisionLog from VisionColor first, then in Premiere I used LutBuddy to add M31 Lut, also from VisionColor,and just topped off the entire sequence with FilmConvert Pro.

Here is my first completely Raw video filmed with 60d...The surfing was not epic that day but I was just testing out a entire Raw project.I also only used one lens, Canon 35 L 1.4, 5x crop was not the best for filming surfing, but I also was just trying it out..let me know what you think..

got it..

This is my first complete Raw video project.Thanks to all the knowledge and great advice found here I was able to come up with something decent and a complete departure on how I used to approach filming.Also just to let you know I live in the Gulf Coast of Florida so do not expect the waves to be epic, we take what we can get and this was a day after a swell had come through. I also filmed the entire thing with my Canon 35 L, using the 5x zoom, which I prob will not do again due to the sharpness, but I just wanted to test it out.I am also fairly new at filming and editing so any advice would be great.

heh, the "best" editors are usually not around for the production. they just get the media and go from there.

Yeah, sorry my terminology is probably not correct, I am only thinking of like small vimeo videos done personally from start to finish by one person. The whole professional level of a team of people that create projects is beyond my scope,hahah..

From all the composers I've dealt with:

match the cuts to the song. you don't necessarily have to have it in mind when shooting but filming for editing does help overall.

Thank you very much sir for the reply. I also know this question is also very slim as far as the overall output desired. I also am keeping in mind composition, framing, technical aspects as in shutter speed, lighting, and etc.. I just noticed that the best video's shared here have amazing music that just adds so much to their projects.Thank you again.Getting started is always the hardest thing to do, I just do not want to just film content with no direction, then I just have a lot of footage that is completely unnecessary. I guess the best editors though just film tons of content and pick and choose what tells the story the best way.

I have a general question about the genesis of a short video. My question is to all the various video experts that contribute their awesome video's here and to the public, Do you usually already have a song or music in mind before you begin to capture your content? I am curious because I want to improve my video's, but when I record my content or subject should I already have a song or music already in mind, or does my content lead me to the song or music. I have noticed that the better video's coincide with the music, as far as tempo,cuts, and mood. I am an inspiring videographer, only really for personal applications, but i want to make better video's. If any one has any suggestions as far as genesis of a project that would be very helpful.I mainly film surfing, skating, and skimboarding for the surfshop I work for and I would like to make much better productions from start to finish. Thank you in advance for any suggestions from the inspiring community in this forum.

Thanks for the comment and especially critical. Not only live praise and believe that we will grow much criticism.
Just to portray me, I made this video without much technical involvement. I believe there comes a certain time the technique takes care of us, and it hides all the essence for which we are working, it is making something beautiful and sensitive. I do not know if I got it, probably not, but I tried briefly.

I enjoyed your video very much sir, especially the fact you decided to take a normal situation such as a family vacation and bring it to life in a completely different direction.I have watched this video several times now and am impressed by the grading and the overall complete disregard for the norm.This video was inspiring to me thank you sir for sharing.

my mistake :) dngs were resized in After Effects.. When I opened dng sequence I corrected white balance, choosed VisionLog as a color profile, then I resized images to 1920x818.

Thank you very much, this helped clear up a few things for me sir.

1. Recorded with highest possible resolution on 60D with MLV_REC, 1728xXXXX 2,35:1
2. Resized in ACR to 1920x818, converted to log using VisionLog color profile, graded with VisionColor OSIRIS, exported to prores.
3. Edited in FCPX.

Hello marekk,great video..I have question about step number 2 in your workflow...are you using ACR directly with the DNG files, or are you using it from After Effects project or Lightroom...I would like to resize my DNG's also but do not see the option to resize in ACR from After Effects...any advise about resizing would be very helpful..thank you again sir for sharing your workflow and video's.
