Once again...

Everything is great about this video. The quality, your colors, your composition, no overcasted skies, your blues, the symbiosis with the music... Damn.

But dude, QUIT THE FREAK!NG DRONE SHOTS!

Why destroy this piece with some overrated drone shots ?! They just don't fit at all and completely break the vibe:
Your great camera work really allows us viewers to feel like being on site and then u completely annihilate this great feeling with some imperialistic aerial shots, which snatch us completely back to reality since we're reminded by them, that is just a video...

Please forgive my hard words, but the love for your work made me do it.

Thank you for your understanding.

Holà amigo,

este video es muy exitoso, muy real.
Entendiste lo que hace a un buen video y eso es colores, buena música (muy buena) y temas honestos.

La única pequeña cosa perturbadora fueron los cortos disparos de drones, que parecía que no encajaban.

De cualquier manera, muchas gracias por compartir esta pieza con nosotros.

(¿Podríamos saber aún el nombre de esta hermosa pieza musical?)


Con saludos cordiales,
Max

the new realtime preview is a joy to work with.

Did danne's build finally enable correct framing in 5x crop mode ??



And I honestly enjoy your very subtle grading by the way. Feels all very natural and fits the context of the video very well.

Let me apologize at first for the cheap clickbait, but I'm so excited to share this with u guys!

I'm just so in love with what I get out of my cam with my little setup:

Hardware:
  • 5D Mark III
  • Sigma Art 35mm 1.4
  • Yashinon-ds 50mm 1.9
ML settings:
  • 1440x1200 - 14bit
  • 23,976 fps
  • 1/100 shutter
Workflow:
  • MLVFS
  • Davinci
  • Premiere
  • MediaEncoder

(For more insights about my workflow, feel free to check out my last posts.)

Enjoy and feel free to comment!! :)




Thanks again to the magic lantern community for making me fall in love again with my canon every time I use it!

Cut the blue in your shadows!!
Looks very amateurish and I would highly recommend starting with some LUTs instead of getting everything done by curves, especially if you're new to grading.

If you take some time, u can find a lot of really good workflow breakdowns in some of the posts in this forum... ;)

Feature Requests / Correct Framing in 3x Crop Mode
« on: July 06, 2020, 12:48:20 PM »
I just stumbled across this forum's section and I couldn't find any topic related to this subject.

As I explained in this post (https://www.magiclantern.fm/forum/index.php?topic=23258.msg217369#msg217369),
I'm a passionate user of ML and its wonderful Crop Mode and being able to get the exact framing while filming in Crop mode would be a real game changer for me.

I understand that it's very easy and comfortable for me to ask for such a feature but I'd also really appreciate to understand why this isn't actually possible yet ?


Best regards,
LoO93

Thank you very much again guys for your nice comments! I didn't expect that.

Since many questions also refer to the stabilization process, let me say that it took a me few years to get this result from my bare hands. After many stabilizations, u get to understand what the software likes and what it loathes. Of course u can't film everything with that technique, since not everything can be stabilized. But restriction promotes creativity, so I can get along with that compromise :)

What music is it?
It's written in the title of the video...  ;)

Did you go by inlines or skateboard while filming?
I made all of the shots on my inline-skates (apart from the one shot of me where my friend used his skateboard).

The nicest thing about shooting with Magic Lantern is you can shoot close to a square if you want to, which is great for social media and phones!
Independently of social media, that's also what I love about ML, having that total freedom when it comes to aspect ratio. Also being able to shoot narrower than 21:9 is amazing. :P

Was your resolution a creative decision or technical decision ?
Purely creative.

Is that Warp stabilizer or another effect?
Warp.

Thank you very much @allmyr and @ngemu for your kind words! It's the first time I get such comments and I'm really happy to hear so :)

What stabilizer did you use? How much time did it take you to edit all the videos? just a single 35mm for all the shots?

  • All shots were filmed with my bare hands (no gimbal nor glidecam) and stabilized in post
  • Some of the clips are about one year old, the grading of each location took about 2-3 hrs each and the whole cut around 72 hrs. Even tough is hard to tell exactly how long each step took since there's been much back and forth in the process of grading and cutting due to trial and error
  • And finally yes, just a single 35mm lens has been used for all the shots! ;) (apart from the old DV-clips of course)

Apologies for bumping an older thread but how did the live view work in 3.5k? ive been reading around but everyone says its extremely slow and unusable in this mode. Your shots look absolutely stunning to say the least.

Thank you very much for your kind words! I used the plain old canon liveview but before hitting the record button, I half pressed the trigger so I could get the exact framing.
This is very handy for stills but a bit tricky when you wish to add some camera movement, since you won't get a realtime nor framed liveview in crop mode while filming.
So I had to remember the framing, go for it and hope it'll turn out good.

Is this context it was quite practicable, but imagine filming sports or even on some serious productions, this would be way too kamikaze.

I will allow myself to make a wish to the next builds right here since I am also a heavy user of this wonderful piece of software:

I know u guys out there have pushed ML to a state which no one could have thought of and I'm honestly really grateful for that.
The last little tiny thingy I would love, is to be able to use the wonderful crop mode with an accurate liveview while filming.
This would enable so much possibilities and turn those canons into some serious workhorses.
I know it is easy for me to say so, but I'm sure you guys are able to do that since you already made all of this happen!

Nevertheless thanks @wib, @Luther, @DivM, and @yourboylloyd for your nice comments and of course the ML community again for making all of this even possible!

Sick work @loO93 - mind sharing which experimental build was used for this project?

Can’t get enough of how stunning these Sigma Arts’ are!

Grateful you appreciate it aswell! The build was: crop_rec_4k.2018Jul22.5D3123

These Art-Series are indeed high-quality optics! I'm very happy with their results, even in crop mode!! It's even where I get the best out of my 35mm, since it'll "crop out" the very small amount of distortion and vignetting around the edges of the lens. Perfect for the 3.5K resolution :)

@Walter Schultz Thank you very much for the clear and simple explanation.

How you do to achieve that pro handheld motion for the latest scenes?
Warp Stabilizer on some very low percentage but don't tell anybody :-X

How long was your record time at those settings? I think I’m right in saying you can drop down to 10 bit lossless but not in other crop modes like 4k etc that’s 14bit lossless only?
As I mentioned above in the specs, I had continuous recording and I could set the bitdepth down to 10bit-lossless (or maybe it was 11bit-lossless) in the crop_rec module even at that resolution.

Great job footage looks awesome.
Well thank you very much!

I finally got my hands on the beast! After my beloved 7D got stolen, I could upgrade to the 5D Mark III since my boss would sell it to me for some overtime work :D

Of course I had to test out the crop_rec experimental build and I have to say that the result is truely amazing. At work we do have the latest RED 8k Helium but the overall result of the 5D on steroids in combination with a good optic and a proper post-production workflow is getting very close to high-standard cinematic cameras! This is just so much fun to shoot with this little beast!!

SPECS:
  • shot on the 5D Mark III with a sigma art 35mm and a 64gb Lexar 1066x CF-Card
  • shot in in 3520x1320 in 10bit-lossless at 23,976 fps using the crop_rec module (so I could get around 85mbps continuous recording at that framerate)
  • The files were mounted w/ MLVFS, graded in DaVinci, exported to DNxHR HQX 10bit, edited in Premiere and finally exported to 4K DNxHR HQX 10bit.

I'm sorry for YT's little purple color shift but I hope you guys enjoy it and I'd be glad to get some feedback!

First of all, I'm going to ask u guys to not tear apart my video because of the tremendous amount of anti-aliasing and moire!
This is not due to my workflow nor the 4K-upscale, unfortunately it's just the 7D sensor in combination with ML...

Nonetheless, everything was shot on the 7D with a sigma art 35mm in 1738x869 in 14bit at 23,976 fps (some 5x crop clips in 2400x1200), mounted w/ MLVFS, graded in DaVinci, exported to DNxHR 444 10bit to Premiere and finally exported to h.264 in 4K w/ a CBR of 100mbps.
I again used @wangtrirat workflow to emulate a Arri Alexa look.

Hope you guys enjoy it and I'd be glad to get some feedback!

So, this time I tried to bypass the serious amount of YT compression (which is huge w/ 1080p) so I did what is forbidden and upscaled my video to 4K and uploaded it :-X

It really makes a difference! I tried to avoid this upscaling-trick but it's the best solution I've found yet... You can check it out with the previous videos on my account, which look nearly horrible after uploading compared to this one.

As far as your shooting skills are concerned, the video is too shaky and amateurish.  Next time, please use a monopod and practise smooth camera movement.  Also do not pull focus back and forth like crazy.  This doesn't look good.  A LCD viewfinder in combination with a stabilized lens, variable ND filter and some practise will give your video a much more stable and professional look.

...and a much more boring video! This is exactly the type of videos I'm trying to avoid right there. Gear shouldn't get in the way in my opinion. I'm on vacation with my friend and my purpose is to catch the right moments, not to plan them. They wouldn't have been so comfortable in front of the cam if I'd set all of the stuff up you mentioned. I need to be light and quick. This is exactly what I love about ML, because the result I get right ouf the box is truely amazing as you mentioned and I can bypass all that secondary gear. I used to worry about clean shots, nothing should be shaky, everything in focus, etc... Turned out to be boring. The unperfection makes it in my opinion way more unique in a way.

BTW, @IDA_ML is right about the ND filter. Set to 24fps, 1/48 shutter speed, open the lens and then fix the exposure with a ND. This will give better motion blur and a better "feel"...
A polarizer can help too, to recover some highlights. I heard the B+W circular polarizers are pretty good.

I admit that some ND would have been suitable in this conditions, but I hate that 1/48 Shutter feeling! I will never shoot under 1/100 unless I need to. However thank you very much for the letterbox hint! I'll try it out next time.

And here's the link to the workflow:

Here we go again!

I again used @wangtrirat workflow to emulate the Arri Alexa look and given the amount of light available in the scene because of the snow, I could catch some of the best rolling shots I've ever had!

I mounted all the clips w/ MLVFS, graded in DaVinci 14, exported the clips to DNxHR 444 10bit, made the edit in Premiere and exported the final edit again to DNxHR 444 10bit.

Everything was shot in 1728x864 at 23,976fps on a 35mm Sigma Art lens, which I adore in combination with my 7D since I only get the best of it due to the crop factor.

I'm a bit disappointed of youtube's compression and I'd really love to get some tips from u guys on how to get the best uploads settings for YT. This time I uploaded the 6gB file in DNxHR but I'm still getting a poor result. I've seen people upscaling it to 4K but isn't there any other workaround ? Please help me guys because my DNxHR file looks way better than the uploaded one and I would love to share it with you.

Those were unfortunatly the last clips I could get before my precious camera got stolen... Hope you guys enjoy it and tell me what you think!

Meh. Thought it was some good workflow. There's too many transformations in this. Using ACEScct on CinemaDNG's would yield better results, or even just a direct transform from Log-C to rec.709, using something like Logarist...

@50mm1200s I used to export my clips in Log-C out of the mlvRawViewer (well not in full bit-depth) and then apply the Rec.709 transform in Davinci, but to be honest I wasn't getting close to the "emulated" dynamic range from @wangtrirat's workflow. If you can provide some more details on the workflow you're thinking of, I'd be glad to try it out!


LoO93, did you shoot wide open? I see a strong loss of sharpness in out of center areas (if that´s an artistic choice to have a vintage look I can totally understand, although I personally prefer a cleaner image).

@whitelight I used the "prism blur" from DaVinci to get the heavier loss of sharpness and the chromatic aberration out of the center areas. It's the first time, but it was indeed an artistic choice trying to achieve also a vintage lens look.

Last September @wangtrirat had the kindness to share his workflow to emulate an Arri Alexa out of an 5DmIII. Thank you very much for that. I can't believe what's coming out of my little 7D now thanks to that workaround.

I mounted all the clips w/ MLVFS, graded in DaVinci 14, exported to some uncompressed 10bit format from Quicktime and then exported H.264 out of the Adobe Media Encoder before uploading it to vimeo.

Everything was shot in 1728x864 at 23,976fps on a 20mm 2.8 canon lens.

I tried to get that analog film look. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I do.

@Scott7D thanks for the nice words and no, I didn't use any VAF filter. It's actually the first time I hear about this and would love to try one, but I'm not sure where to get these in Europe.

Thanks for the feedback! Excited to share more
