Share Your Videos / Political commercial (first attempt)
« on: January 23, 2016, 09:33:54 AM »
Finnish MP O-P Parviainen invites people to meet him for a coffee and discuss politics. I didn't want to do a super bland boring clip, so I tried an aggressive grade, among others with quite kicked up eye color. Customer liked it, viewers (especially female) liked it...

Shot on EOS 6D w/ 24-105 IS L f/4, h.264, Cinestyle, ML functions used: Zebras, peaking
Additional gear: Cheap "Hakutatz" glidecam, Aputure Al-528W light
Edited and graded in Resolve 12

On a node... ah, thanks!

So, I have been tinkering this weekend but I couldn't figure out how to change the color space in Resolve 12. Any hints on that?

Wow, thanks for te effort! I'll definitely try those out!

@Levas: probably both but in this instance I'm talking more about aberrations, I think. Imagine pointing your camera to water on a sunny day. The sparkle of the sun is full of purple spots... I do a lot of nature photography and I love high contrast scenes and that's where I usually see purple dots or fringes.

No, never heard of it... For photos I use Darktable but AFAIK that can't be scripted, so applying the chromatic aberration filter to all DNGs of a sequence would be fairly tedious...


Post-processing Workflow / How do you deal with chromatic aberrations?
« on: October 16, 2015, 12:15:04 PM »

one of the reasons why I don't use MLV that often yet is that with my 24-105 f/4 L IS I have really lots of chromatic aberrations. The worst is water and sunlight but also many other scenes in the nature are prone to it. When shooting h.264 with my 6D, the camera seems to process the aberrations out but in MLV they are really massively visible and ugly. How do you deal with those? Do you just ignore them or do you have a workflow to remove them in post? Maybe some Resolve plugin?

Pretty expensive solution, given that I couldn't do anything else with that recorder... The 6D doesn't have a "clean" HDMI out option...

General Help Q&A / Screen recording?

I know, there's a screenshot function in ML but is there also a screen recording function? That would be kinda cool for doing tutorials and maybe as a plot device in films.



Here's the teaser for my second wolf doc. The film was shot on a 6D with 24-105 f/4 L IS, h.264, Marvel profile (eeks, never gonna use that again!). Didn't dare to use MLV because I had some dropped frame issues on a test project before, so ML was mainly used for all the global draw goodies, like zebras, focus assist, histograms, etc.
Workflow: Camera h.264 -> Prores -> DaVinci Resolve 12
I also did the whole edit in DR12 and I like it. I guess, I have done my last project with kdenlive...

It is truly a shame that you didn't take advantage of MLV RAW especially Dual-ISO in crop-mode @ 2.5K... [emoji6]
Yeah... I'm still filming with a 6D and even with reduced resolution, I see dropped frames and audio sync issues... For small clips, that's just a nuisance but for a "real" project, it's a nogo...

Here's a few BTS pics from my doc shooting in July. Again didn't dare to shoot video in ML raw, which I regret badly because some interviews have bad exposure/dynamic range issues now. But also again ML was a major help for the film shoot and especially the photos :). More BTS pics here:

Interesting idea! I think, I'll do that too...

Ran into an interesting issue with my script. I shot 3 clips in the same setting and after conversion they all came out with a little different white balance. Nothing I couldn't correct in post but unnecessary additional work. Now I'm pondering what would be a good default value to use in the script... Having all clips of a shoot in the same wrong white balance isn't as bad as having each clip with different values, especially, if I shoot 2 or 3 cards full. Kdenlive allows white balance correction per track :).

General Chat / Shoot cooperation, Northern Germany, 20.-26.7.
« on: July 02, 2015, 07:25:54 AM »

from 20. till 26.7. we are in Germany to make our second wolf film. Most of the time, we'll be in Dörverden and on 24.7. we are in the Wildpark Lüneburger Heide. We also would like to do a specific photoshoot and are looking for somebody who would be interested in cooperating with us, particularly who would be interested in borrowing us a long Canon tele for the shoot. We can't offer much money but we can offer cooperation, e.g. on 24.7. the person could come with us to the wolves and use the opportunities to do their own little shoot. You could reply here or to stefan at susilauma point fi. I do speak also German.

ML's AETTR function is a major help nailing exposure in nature photography...!

Sooo much to test and learn (Resolve...) :D. And in about a month we're planning to go shooting Tyttö ja sudet 2... I still haven't decided if I should dare shoot it in raw. One big concern is that at 23.976, the 6D only does 1472x626 continuously. I can't make up my mind how the softness through the upscaling compares to the h.264 ALL-I...

- Edits: White balance, levels

And... does anybody have an idea why in the last scene, the sand becomes more red when more grass is in the picture? Does dcraw do some automatic evil stuff with the red/green-balance?

Did an update of my script and included the white balance settings:
Code: [Select]

SCRIPTPATH=$( cd $(dirname $0) ; pwd -P )

if [ ${1} ]; then
  echo "Warning: FPS not specified, using 23.976"

if [ ${2} ]; then
  LUT="-vf lut3d=${LUTSDIR}/${2}.cube"

MLVBASE=$(echo ${PWD##*/} | sed "s/\.MLV//g")

WTEMP=$(dcraw -T -a -v -c ${FIRSTDNG} 2>&1 | awk '/multipliers/ { print $2,$3,$4,$5 }')

dcraw -a -c -H 0 -6 -W -q 3 -r ${WTEMP} *.dng | \
ffmpeg -f image2pipe -c:v ppm -r ${FPS} -i pipe:0 \
-c:v prores_ks -profile:v 3 -vendor ap10 -pix_fmt yuv444p10 \
${LUT} -y -r ${FPS} ${OUTPUT}

« on: April 28, 2015, 10:04:41 AM »
Yeah, maybe, but for the money that a 6D+VAF cost, you can buy a Blackmagic Cinema Camera or even a Production Camera 4k, which IMHO would be the better choice if you wanna do only video.

It should also be noted that the 6D's max resolution for continuous recording at 24fps MLV raw is 1472x626 if you do 2.35:1. Less if you record 16:9... And the h.264 output isn't that great to work with in post. It fairly quickly falls apart.
